We are very fortunate to have Julie Dody return to lead the pack and taking us on the road for cross country.
Do you enjoy running, then cross country may be just the outlet you are looking for. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at OLPH from 5:15 to 6:45 pm and will start in, August. It's too early for the meet schedule but they are normally held on Sundays at 2:15 pm and typically completed by 3:30-4:00 depending on how many runners we have. The season usually starts in September and wraps up by mid-October, the locations are different for each meet and held throughout the Lehigh Valley. The grade and distance breakdowns are as follows:
· grades K-2 1/2 mile
· grades 3-4 1 mile
· grades 5-6 1.5 miles
· grades 7-8 2 miles
· Grades 6th thru 8th (Varsity) - This age group strives to be able to execute skills comparable to what will be expected at a competitive high school level. First year 7th and 8th grade players are welcome to participate so they can learn the sport and compete.
· Grades 4th thru 6th (JV) - This age group is being introduced to the sport and strives to be able to apply the fundamental skills / techniques to match situations. The goal is to utilize three contacts as often as possible so the team is preparing for competitive volleyball.
· Practices – usually 2 times a week beginning in August
· Matches – Saturdays and Sundays beginning as early as Labor Day weekend (season ends late October/early November)
· Coaches / Volunteers – The program can use help with coaches. We have many experienced coaches that can teach new coaches about volleyball. Coaches and volunteers need to have all background checks and clearances to participate.
· Questions/Volunteers – Please contact Coach Zile at 610-392-6769 (call or text) or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the season and / or if you are able to volunteer as a coach for the season.
There have been many changes to the age groupings for Soccer. The change was required to follow the guidelines that have been established by US Soccer. Instead of the players age being determined by a rolling calendar year it is now determined by YEAR of birth. This change has created new opportunities for some players in level of play groupings that are now available and also changes in the format of play.
Registration is available for ANY one that has a birth date between January 1, 2007 through and including December 31, 2016.
Birth Years Level of Play Format of Play
2015 & 2016 Under 7 (U7) 8 v 8
2013 & 2014 Under 9 (U9) 7 v 7
2011 & 2012 Under 11 (U11) 9 v 9
2009 & 2010 Under 13 (U13) 11 v 11
2007 & 2008 Under 15 (U15) 11 v 11
The U7 grouping is the only age ban that will be co-ed. We will be playing against teams from St. Janes and Bethlehem Township Athletic Association.
Because of these changes we ask that you register quickly as we have a short window of opportunity to determine if we will have enough players to field teams at each level.
You will be able to purchase a uniform during the registration process, previously the younger groups did not need a uniform with a number, this year numbered uniforms are required from U9 on up. There is an option to just purchase shirt or shorts individually without purchasing an entire uniform kit (both shorts and shirt).
Many people have asked what the registration fee covers. Blue Mountain Youth Soccer League registration fees (both players and teams), referee fees, entire season of games, end of year activities, and most of the expenses associated with the Garcia Cup (tent, table, chair rentals and setup).
Registration for each athlete is $90.00, the uniform kit (shirt and shorts) will be $35.00.
During the registration process you will be prompted to order a uniform kit if needed. All first year U9 players will need to order a uniform. Please keep in mind that you will be able to use this uniform season to season, judge accordingly when selecting the uniform size for your athlete to insure you will be able to get multiple seasons from this purchase.

2022 Track and Field at OLPH
It is almost time for Track and Field at OLPH! This year, due to COVID-19, there will be some changes to how our program is run. The changes were made to help ensure that all CDC guidelines are followed to do our best to keep everyone safe while we enjoy the great outdoors! Here are the details:
Spring Soccer – Games will be played on Sundays, beginning in April and ending early June. The spring season is a time to get out and enjoy the weather, there are generally no practices and standings are not kept. Additional information will be provided by the coaches. If you have a soccer jersey from last year's spring or fall season (with or without numbers) you can wear that this spring. There is an option to order a new shirt during the registration process.
Over the past year there have been changes to the soccer brackets. Previously the brackets were based on age as determined by the school year. There has been a transition to Birth Year brackets. This spring season will have brackets for the following divisions U9 (birth years 2008-2009), U11 (2006-2007), U13 (2004-2005), U15 (2002-2003). To be eligible to participate this spring your athlete would need to have been born between 1/1/2002 through and including 12/31/2009. There have been several changes to the registration site to properly capture the birth year. If you experience challenges during the registration process, please let us know.
