Welcome to the home of Oakland’s Athletic League (OAL) Middle Schools Sports. Students who partake in sports within the school community get to experience unique and life-changing moments in their lives, thanks to the athletics department of the Oakland Unified School District. Sports are an excellent way for individuals to make lasting friendships, unbreakable community bonds, and extraordinary memories, showing students how to lead each other and work together toward a common goal. Sports teach leadership and teamwork that will carry through the rest of a student’s life, providing for further successes in the future.

Sports bring communities together, help to create pragmatic and inventive individuals, and even chemically alter the way that students process information through exercise. The Oakland Athletic League (OAL) goal is to make sure that all students are cared for, and student-athletes are a critical aspect in our community.

Student athletics are an important factor in any school, and the Oakland Athletic League strives to provide effective and supportive programs for student-athletes, such as necessary concussion provisions, information needed for annual physicals, and access to school’s coaches, athletic directors, and athletic trainers.
