Olympic Club Mission Statement:
The purpose of the Olympic Club is to encourage gifts to Mater Dei’s Cross Country and Track & Field teams to assist with all costs associated with running top rate athletic programs.
The Mater Dei Cross Country and Track & Field teams have established themselves as two of the premier programs in Orange County, CIF, and the State. 

In Cross Country, both the girls and boys programs have won a CIF Championship under Coach Martinez’s direction and produced numerous college athletes. 

On the Track, under the leadership of Rick Martinez '83, in over 25 years as the boys' and girls' head coach, the Monarchs have dominated the Trinity League, won 7 Orange County Team Championships, 3 CIF Team Championships, and 1 CIF State title.   Overall the Track & Field program has produced 41 CIF Champions, 13 CIF Masters Champions, and 5 State Champions!  More school records have been broken in the last 25 years than in any time in Mater Dei Track & Field history. 

The Cross Country and Track & Field programs have offered many student-athletes the opportunity to find success while learning very valuable life skills.

The Olympic Fund has been established to provide all interested student-athletes the opportunity to be members of these successful programs.  Our objective is to raise funds to help defray student costs, provide the best coaching and equipment and allow our athletes to experience the success of competitive sports while learning teamwork as well as other valuable life skills.  The Olympic Club will also strengthen the teams as a whole as we will be able to attract student-athletes who might choose not participate in a sport at Mater Dei due to financial hardships.  We want to create more opportunities for these special athletes to become great student-athletes and Mater Dei community leaders.

All proceeds of the Olympic Club will directly benefit the student-athletes of the Cross Country and Track & Field Programs. These funds will be available for additional equipment costs, assistant coach stipends, meet costs and special projects.
