Oak Grove Center/Jack Weaver School is a CIF member school and participates in the Freedom League. Our school currently offers participation in four sports for CIF competition, including boys varsity baseball, boys varsity basketball, boys and girls cross country and boys and girls track and field. Our program, directed by Jeff Prihode, Athletic Director and PE Teacher, is devoted to teaching our students how to be productive and healthy emotionally and physically through the value of sports. The coaching staff places a strong emphasis on leadership, sportsmanship and building character as well as lives through team participation and positive social interactions. Our teams have routinely made the playoffs in basketball and baseball, allowing students the opportunity to represent the agency in the community and enjoying the pride and self esteem that comes with this level of recognition. The 2012 Boys’ Varsity Baseball team is the Freedom League Champion with an undefeated season. The sports program truly enriches the overall therapeutic experience for the children.
Our middle school / intramural programs offer an array of sports throughout the year. They include cross country, basketball, volleyball, soccer, track and field and co-ed softball. The emphasis is participation. Our middle school athletic programs encourage involvement and interaction in quality exercise, the development of an awareness of personal interests and talents, and experimentation in diverse athletic activities by as many students as possible. Through such participatory athletics, students continue to develop socially, physically and emotionally. By combining the simple pleasure of physical activity, with the structure of a team sport and the leadership of a coach, students continue their development, acquiring skills, values, and knowledge that will benefit them as they get older.
