About Our Program
Our Lady of Mercy Academy is home to scholarship-winning athletes and offers 11 sports — Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball, Basketball, Cross Country, Swimming, Softball, Lacrosse, Crew, Track & Field, and Cheerleading. All students, regardless of their experience, are encouraged to participate in our sports program.
Our emphasis is on teamwork and sportsmanship and our teams compete against other high schools all over South Jersey as part of the Cape Atlantic League (CAL). The Academy has an Olympic-sized swimming pool; softball, lacrosse and soccer fields; basketball and volleyball courts, and a full gymnasium.
We also utilize the facilities at St. Augustine Prep and cheer for Hermits football and basketball. As part of the CAL, eight OLMA athletes were named First Team All-Stars this past year. In addition, OLMA was awarded the Sportsmanship Award for the 2015-2016 season. During the month of August, OLMA is offering five sports camps: Softball, Soccer, Lacrosse, Swim, and Volleyball.
The following forms are required for all athletes. Please print, complete and submit them to OLMA’s Athletic Director, Helen Shollenberger.
