Athletics Overview

A Thriving Legacy

The Oakland Tech athletics program has been the launchpad for a number of history-making athletes, including Rickey Henderson, John Brodie and Marshawn Lynch. In recent years, Oakland Tech has won the Oakland Athletic League (OAL) championships in football, mens and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, badminton, tennis, lacrosse and swimming.

Sports & Seasons

We take great pride in the depth and breadth of our athletics program. Prior to the start of each season, we host a Sports Information Night for student-athletes and their families to learn about individual sports, meet the coaches, get the lowdown about expectations, practices, schedules and requirements, and much more. Learn more about the teams here. If you have questions about our program in general, please reach out to Tech’s Athletic Director Jim Coplan at If you have questions about specific sports, please contact the coach(es) directly.

Athletic Calendar

We’re currently working to post the schedules of all sports on Tech’s athletics calendar, which is hosted on the MaxPreps platform. View the calendar.


At Oakland Tech, we expect all our student-athletes to be outstanding citizens and role models. To be eligible for participation, students must maintain minimum progress toward graduation and must maintain a C average (2.0) in academic work.

Poor attendance, physical violence or fighting of any kind, possession of drugs or alcohol, or more than two suspensions from school will result in a student becoming ineligible for any extracurricular activity. Eligibility is determined from the preceding marking period’s report card and will be monitored by the coach of the sport. To be eligible, students must not be credit deficient by more than ten credits. All eligibility issues will be reviewed by the administration.

For more information, please contact Athletic Director Jim Coplan at 

Online Registration

Prior to participating in any sport, all student-athletes must register online. Review the information and access the registration link.
