Welcome to Oakcrest Athletics!
On behalf of Oakcrest School, I would like to welcome all students to participate in our interscholastic sports program.
Driven by our school’s mission, our Oakcrest students are challenged to do their very best with a joyful, sporting spirit, seeking virtue in all they do.
By taking a personal interest in each student-athlete, our all-female coaches inspire our girls to give their very best to their teammates at every practice and game.
Joining an athletic team is an excellent way to grow emotionally and socially. Oakcrest athletics played a major role in my own life, as the lessons my coaches taught me helped me to develop skills in time management, problem-solving, commitment, motivation, and team building. It is a joy to share what I received with my fellow Oakies.
Athletics is an essential part of the Oakcrest experience. Over 85% of our students participate on a sports team or in a fitness class offered by the athletic department. We offer several levels of each sport- Basketball, Cross Country, Golf, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track & Field and Volleyball - which allows athletes of all abilities - from the beginner to the elite athlete - to compete in our program.
Our athletes stand out as much for their positivity and sportsmanship as for their excellent abilities. Our coaches stand out for their respect and kindness even as they demand the most out of each girl.
After over 30 years as a member of the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference (PVAC), Oakcrest now competes independent of a conference in all sports but Swimming. We continue to swim competitively in the Washington Metro Prep School Swim & Dive League (WMPSSDL).
Oakcrest is an active member of the Virginia Independent School Athletic Association (VISAA), which provides all our varsity teams with the opportunity to compete at the state championship level.
Oakcrest has a long history of successful competitive play in the Washington, D.C. area, having won over 50 PVAC banners. In 2010, 2011 and 2016 and 2017, Oakcrest was recognized with the PVAC Director’s Cup having scored the most points across all varsity athletic programs in the league.
Our teams and athletes have competed successfully at the state level, and we have proudly sent many Chargers to compete at the collegiate level.
