Middle School Athletics

The Middle School Athletic program is a program that promotes the development of fundamental skills, Christian sportsmanship, and strives to be competitive with the intention of preparing our players for participation in high school. This is a great opportunity for students to get involved and enhance their experience at OSLS. All practices and games are after school. With the exception of the basketball season, ALL EVENTS are over by 5:00/5:30pm.
Each season consists of about 3 events (practices/games) per week with an end of season tournament. Some tournaments are out of town in places like Orlando, Ft Myers, and as far as Jacksonville. The seasons are approximately 8 – 12 weeks long. ALL EVENTS are over by 5:00/5:30pm.

What to expect:

  • Varsity level – Playing time is often determined by how well a player is prepared, which is assessed at practice. Winning is the goal as the end of season tournament seeding is based on the win/loss record. Each coach determines playing time differently which also means that every player may not see the playing field in every game. Varsity level pulls from the 5th – 8th grades.
  • Junior Varsity -Every player will play in every game although the playing time is determined by how well the player is prepared based on the performance in practice. Junior Varsity pulls from the 4th – 6th grades
  • Practices and games are found on the season calendar
  • Transportation –  The school’s bus will usually transport students to practice and games. Occasionally parents are asked to help carpool if a bus is not available.
  • Registration and Payments – Fill out this online registration form and pay with cash or check (payable to OSLS with the seasons you’ve signed up listed in the memo section). Turn payments in at the school office or Doug Meissner.
  • Cost is $95 per season. (Package deals will not be offered)
