Our Lady of the Lakes proudly competes in the athletic league of the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO).  For decades, the CYO has stood as the top competitive sports league in the area. It provides 11 different sports over three seasons each year, to students 3rd – 8th grade, at over 120 schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit. CYO athletes have a chance to compete in some of the nicest venues in the area, including Ford Field each year.  But the best part of CYO sports is not athletic victory, it is family. Our kids play with and against their cousin, for their fathers, mothers, or aunt. They become friends with the child who always sits in the pew right in front of them, but they had never met because they attend different schools.  

If you are a parishioner at Our Lady of the Lakes, and your child is in 3rd – 8th grade, they are eligible to participate in our Athletic program. 

Register now for Winter Basketball for Grades 5-8! Deadline is October 15. Season starts November 4! 

Visit the athletics site to register or contact OLL Athletics at athletics@ollonline.org.

We offer a traditional Monday night process which meets weekly on Mondays from 6:15-7:30 p.m. and a Sunday Family process. Our Sunday Family process meets once a month; your family will celebrate Mass together at our 12:30 Liturgy, all will enjoy a meal, the children will go to their grade level class and a parent will stay gathered for our adult enrichment.
