Shawn Meadows, Director of Sports Camps, 817-451-4994 ext 2642
Please note: Summer Programs will not take place on July 4, 2019 in observance of the holiday.
Age range Sports Camps are designed for children entering grades 1-9. Oakridge students and non-Oakridge children are welcome to participate in our Sports Camps.
Attendance Summer Programs at Oakridge are open to students from any school. Refunds and prorated fees are not made if a child is absent during the week they are registered for a Sports Camp. No refund will be given for an enrolled student that does not show up for sports camp without communication before camp begins.
Conduct All Summer Programs participants are expected to behave in an honorable, trustworthy, and respectful manner and speech at all times. Participants will be respectful of persons in authority and the rights of others, and exercise proper care in the use of materials and equipment. Inappropriate behavior or conduct not in accordance with these expectations can jeopardize a participant's privilege of attending Summer Programs at Oakridge.
Camp Descriptions The sport camps we generally offer are baseball, basketball, football, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball (gr.1-4 and gr. 5-9) and wrestling (boys).
Equipment needs Appropriate footwear is important. Please send your camper with tennis/basketball shoes for all camps. If your camper wishes to wear cleats for their baseball, football, please send them with tennis shoes as well. All camps will have access to an air-conditioned gym for rain or heat concerns. Some camps may request campers to bring their own personal equipment: tennis racquet for tennis camp. All campers are to bring a water bottle or thermos with the camper name written on it. Water refill for a personal container is available. Sports Camps will take place inside and outside; sunscreen for your child is important.
Daily Schedule Sports Camps are held Monday – Friday from 12:30PM – 3:30PM unless communicated differently. Sports Camps will take place inside and outside. All camps begin and end in the gym for parent pick up.
Lunch/Snacks Staying hydrated in the Texas heat is a must! Campers are expected to bring their own water bottle. Please label the container with the camper’s name. We will have water available at all on-campus camps so campers may refill their water containers as often as desired. Students must provide their own lunch and drink. Lunches will not be refrigerated or microwaved, so please pack accordingly.
Minimum Enrollment: It is necessary to have at least 5 full time students paid in full for a Sports Camp to take place.
Payment: All programs must be paid in full before the first day of the program beginning. Otherwise, the participant can not participate in the program until paid in full.
Refunds A $25 deposit (per program) is required at registration to hold a space for an individual in the program. The last day of school in May is the deadline to receive a full refund on any pre-registered summer program an individual is wishing to cancel. After the last day of school and before the program begins, there is a $25 non-refundable deposit required per class. The $25 non-refundable deposit of a canceled program will not be applied to the remaining summer balance owed when canceled by the registrant. Once the program begins, there will be no refund. Full refunds will be given if a program is canceled by The Oakridge School. Parents can add programs to an individual account, however, only the Director of Summer Programs can drop/delete a program once a registration has been submitted. No refund will be given for an enrolled student that does not show up for sports camp without communication before camp begins.
Student drop-off/pick-up On Mondays, a registration check-in area will be located on the main campus in the Student Activity Center (SAC) which also serves as our large gym and food service area during the school year. We request that parents walk their children inside the building each day as well as come inside to pick them up at pick up time. To allow multiple enrichment opportunities, Summer Days students enrolled in Sport Camps and/or Summer Camp will be escorted by Oakridge Staff to their Sport Camps and/or Summer Camp at the conclusion of their Summer Days class.
Transportation Oakridge staff will transport students registering in camps/classes taking place in different areas of campus. The shuttle will run from the Early Childhood Center to main campus and back to the Early Childhood Center at approximately 10:00 for the 10:15 class dismissal and 10:20 class beginning. Then again at approximately 12:15 for the 12:20 class dismissal and the 12:30 sports camps and classes beginning. Finally at 3:00/3:30 when sports camps and classes are over, students will be shuttled back to the Early Childhood Center if needing Extended Care. There is no shuttle before the 10:00 AM time.
What to wear The dress code for sports camps is casual, but conservative. Appropriate length shorts and tennis shoes with socks are preferred. Hats are acceptable.
