VIRTUAL FALL SPORTS

During the 2020-2021 school year, we are offering Virtual Sports for the fall season! Every student is welcome regardless of skill level, and our most important goal is to have fun. Waldron’s Virtual Sports also provide the great opportunity to make new friends. Coaches will spend time each session in team building activities to encourage and foster new relationships, so come on out and give it a try!​

Co-ed Soccer- grades 5-8

Field Hockey- grades- 5-8

When will WMA Virtual Sports begin? 

Our goal is to first comfortably acclimate our students to our new classroom setting and then Virtual Sports will begin on Monday, September 28. 

 

Where will WMA Virtual Sports take place? 

In the comfort of your own home or backyard.

 

Why are we moving WMA sports online? 

As educators, we recognize the importance of learning outside of the classroom. Our coaches recognize the importance of creating strong connections with our students and how important it is for them to have an outlet to express themselves physically and emotionally.  They will be working with students and designing these programs to aid students in progressing their own knowledge of the game, increase their skill level, improve their fitness and connect with their friends and teammates. 

 

At Waldron Mercy Academy, athletics goes beyond sports, and embodies the mind, body and spirit by promoting sportsmanship and building community.

We teach our athletes to work hard, work together, give their best effort, and remain merciful during competition. 

 

​We field more than 20 co-ed and single sex teams in 11 sports. We compete in the Catholic Athletic League (CAL) and Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) conferences where Waldron Mercy athletes are known for being strong contenders and a respectful opponents.

The lessons learned on the field and court compliment those in the classroom and support each student’s growth as a well-round young adult.
