Athletics Overview & Calendar
Montera Sports are a part of the Oakland Athletic League (OAL) for Middle School Sports. We play particular sports in particular seasons to align with OAL and always plan to field teams in every sport. Middle school sports correlate with high school sport seasons. Most sports teams at Montera are competitive, meaning students try out for the team (occurs after school at Montera), practice twice a week, and have competitive games against other middle schools on Saturdays. In some cases, there is a club sport (such as golf) that arises which is only "for fun" that plays during the week with no competitive game on Saturdays.
An email will go out to families for your students to sign up / try out for our competitive sports teams. Teams are coached by teachers and volunteer parents - we are always looking for coaches!
Email Daral Smith (email@example.com) if interested.
Gender Equity & Nonbinary StudentsAll students should have the opportunity to participate in athletic activities in a manner that is consistent with their gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on a student’s records. Once a nonbinary or intersex student has notified the student’s school of their gender identity, the student shall be treated as either gender for purposes of eligibility for athletics and activities that are gender‐segregated or gender‐specific, provided that if the student has tried out or participated in athletics or an activity that is gender‐specific or gender‐segregated, the student may not participate during that same season on a team of the other gender.
Fall Sports (Sept. - Dec.)
* Lacrosse in the fall is a club sport and not a competitive sport. It functions as an enrichment class that is included in the After School Program (ASP). You must be enrolled in ASP to participate in lacrosse for the fall.
Winter Sports (Jan. - Mar.)
* Lacrosse is available to Montera middle school students through the Oakland Lacrosse Club. The season starts Feb 1st, 2022, and practices for all middle school students will be Tues/Thursday at Laney College. Games will be played on the weekends, with home games being played at multiple locations (Oakland Tech/Laney). We provide students with all the gear needed to play for both girls/boys lacrosse and uniforms. We also offer healthy snack options and bottled water for all players (fresh fruit/snack Bar) at practices. We will also have a bus that can pick students up directly from their schools and take them to practice, which will be coordinated with families who are interested. All of this is completely free for families!
