Olf athletic programs
Athletics play an important role in the development of the children at Our Lady of Fatima Elementary. We encourage all students to participate in an extracurricular sport. Practicing and playing a sport not only develops physical fitness and confidence but also encourages excellence and promotes teamwork.
- The area Catholic schools participate in an elementary basketball program for boys and girls in 3rd through 6th grades. This is a competitive league, but the main goals are to have fun and teach the players the great game of basketball. Practices begin in December and games are played in January and February.

This event is held in April of each year. Practice is held throughout the year to prepare the students for the various events.
