Bearkats Athletics

The Bearkats are The Post Oak School's interscholastic sports teams. The teams compete against other area schools in a variety of sports such as cross-country, track and field, volleyball, flag football, soccer, and basketball.

 

Bearkats Sports Seasons

  • Fall: cross-country running, flag football, volleyball
  • Winter: basketball
  • Spring: soccer, track and field

Bearkats fields separate boys' and girls' teams at both the Middle School and High School levels.

 

How to Join the Bearkats

We encourage all eligible students in grades 4 to 12 to come out for the teams. Students must be in good standing in the classroom and must have been in attendance at the week’s practices in order to play at a game. It is our aim to give every player playing time, and playing time will be based on practice attendance and effort at practice. We practice and play after school three days per week, and assume that everyone on the team wants to be at every game and practice. We encourage full and consistent participation because that is better for both the individual player and the team. You may register online through My BackPack. There are three Bearkat teams at Post Oak divided by Upper Elementary, Middle School, and High School.


 

Our Priorities with Athletics

  • Improve fitness
  • Learn skills
  • Develop sportsmanship, to respect your own teammates, the other team and the referee
  • Have fun playing with friends and classmates
  • Learn to work together as a team
  • Challenge yourself against worthy competition
  • Play hard
  • Build school spirit
  • Win gracefully and lose gracefully. Winning is usually more fun, and we like to win; but the young athlete learns about life by experiencing both outcomes. In any event, winning is a lower priority than any of the preceding values.

    Guidelines for Parents at Games

    • Be encouraging; your presence alone communicates that clearly.
    • Let the coach give instructions to the players during the game. When others shout instructions to players during the game, it is confusing.
    • Model good sportsmanship for your child and the community.
    • Appreciate the other team and the officials; without them, there is no game.
    • Read the list of priorities above. These are the values we uphold with our student-athletes; we ask you to support them.

     

    Concussions are a very real danger for all student athletes. Our first and foremost priority is to be sure our students are safe. The CDC has a new initiative called "Heads Up" through which they have created free tools and materials that provide important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion. You can view more information about the program by clicking here. We are asking our parents to please read, complete and return this form to the athletics director. We thank you for your participation.
