Races Information

  • Parents are responsible for registration and payment for all races will be completed online.
  • Please wear a team shirt or any Oak View shirt for the races.
  • Parents are responsible for transportation to each race
  • The link for registering will be below the race once we have the information. Please check back frequently throughout the season 

Behavior Expectations

  • Students will be given two strikes before they are dismissed from the team (first strike=warning, second strike=dismissal). 
  • The coaches will be the judge of whether or not a situation is worthy of a strike.
  • Students will receive a ticket at the end of practice that will be given to the parent/guardian to make sure everyone is aware of what happened.

If a student goes to Y-Care after practice, students will need to take the ticket home and have it signed by the next practice. Some situations that can warrant a strike are:

  1. Hitting
  2. Kicking
  3. Tripping
  4. Pushing
  5. Being disrespectful to coaches or other students
  6. Not staying on task/leaving designated area
  7. Not behaving during pickup

Final Information

  • All communication will be done via email and the webpage (under the "Activities" tab)
  • Please check it frequently for updated information.
  • Any questions please contact coaches Rachel Bushong or Mr. Mike Barnes
