Letter From the Athletic Director
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Student-Athletes:
As an athlete at Oneida Baptist Institute, the most important responsibility a student-athlete has is to represent the school and God honorably, on and off campus. Our expectation for athletes in all sports and at all levels is to do their personal best in the classroom, practice hard on the court, field, or track, and compete to the best of their ability.
Currently, the athletic program at OBI offers 11 sports for students. We will offer competitive sports teams in which our students show enough interest to support a team. Because of the no-cut policy in our program, young people receive the opportunity to participate and train in sports they may never have tried before. These programs play an essential role in instructing our young men and women to conduct themselves with honesty and integrity, strive for excellence, persevere through adversity, make sacrifices, and compete with dignity and pride while developing a commitment to teamwork and service to our school and community.
Student-athletes, coaches, and spectators are all expected to conduct themselves in a manner that shows respect and sportsmanship when we interact with opposing teams, coaches, fans, and contest officials. As the public holds student-athletes to a higher scrutiny, we must work to demonstrate good judgment and a positive perspective of school athletics. Success and pride will come from competing the right way.
Our administration, staff, and coaches are committed to providing a challenging, supportive, and caring environment where our student-athletes can reach their academic, athletic, and personal potential.
Please feel free to contact me should the need ever arise. I am excited to be a part of the rich tradition of athletics at OBI and strive to support the students, coaches, and this community to the best of my ability.
