Vision for OMI Athletics

Oakland Military Institute values athletics participation as a tremendous opportunity for

students that involves tremendous responsibility.  OMI student athletes are ambassadors of

our school community every time they take part in a competition.  Representing the school

involves maintaining academic eligibility, high standards of citizenship at all times,

sportsmanship and playing the game to the best of one’s ability. Athletics is a privilege

provided by the school may be revoked when the student fails or refuses to comply with the

rules. Respect for and compliance with the school’s Student-Athlete Code of Conduct is

expected of every student who participates.

Eligibility Requirements for OMI Athletics:

Academic Eligibility / Attendance: In accordance with the CIF, student athletes must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • Current enrollment in five classes for a minimum of 25 units.
  • Passing grades in all currently enrolled course work.
  • GPA of 2.0 in the previous grading period. Should the student athlete fall below a 2.0, a probationary period may be applied for at the discretion of the coach and administration.
  • Transfer students must meet all eligibility guidelines.
  • Must attend class in order to participate in practice and games. Students who are absent from school for “unexcused reasons” are not eligible to participate in athletics for that day.
  • Students who are excused early for a game are responsible for missed work and should use tutorial to make up work; making up work after school is not an excuse to miss practice, but if this becomes necessary the student must communicate with their coach prior to missing practice.
