On behalf of Oakcrest School, I would like to welcome all students to participate in our interscholastic sports program.
Joining an athletic team is an excellent way to grow emotionally and socially. As an Oakcrest graduate, athletics played a major role in helping prepare me for college and the adult world. The lessons of my coaches and the games I played helped me to develop skills in time management, problem-solving, commitment, motivation, and team building.
Oakcrest is proud to belong to the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference (PVAC) which provides a competitive atmosphere for our Middle School and varsity teams in Basketball, Cross Country, Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Track & Field and Volleyball. In addition, Oakcrest fields teams in Swim & Dive that compete in the Washington Metropolitan Prep School Swim & Dive League (WMPSSDL) and Lacrosse which competes independent of a league. Oakcrest is also an active member in the Virginia Independent School Athletic Association which provides all our varsity teams with the opportunity to compete at the state championship level.
In keeping with the mission and philosophy of Oakcrest School, the Athletic Department seeks to provide opportunities for student-athletes to develop leadership skills, teamwork, fair play, and respect for others. The Athletic Department strives to develop programs that are reasonably safe and leads our student-athletes to value commitment, to work for academic success, and to learn about health and wellness.
Oakcrest has a long history of competitive play in the Washington, D.C. area. Our teams are perennially at the top of the PVAC, having won over 50 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 earned several opportunities and recognitions at the state level.
Unique to our program, we welcome all levels of athletes–from the beginner to the well-seasoned player. Students have the opportunity to try new sports and follow their athletic passion. It is our goal to help each individual athlete reach her highest level of play. We have proudly sent many Chargers to compete at the collegiate level.
