Getting involved is one of the biggest keys to being successful in high school. Students involved in athletics and activities typically have better attendance and higher grade point averages. Oshkosh West offers a wide variety of athletic programs so we believe we offer something for everyone. Participation is something that is stressed at Oshkosh West High School as a number of our sports have a "no cut" policy. Show your Wildcat Pride by getting involved in one our athletic programs!
If you have any questions please contact Brad Jodarski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 424-0143.
IMPORTANT WIAA SUMMER INFORMATION
TRAINING AND COMPETING
1. The WIAA recognizes a distinction between training and competing. Students must pay 100% of their own expenses, including transportation, to any nonschool (out-of-season) camps, clinics, or specialized training. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in season activities in that sport and during the five unrestricted contact days in the summer.
** Students may not fundraise in order to cover the cost of these activities – use of GoFundMe pages, for example, to cover nonschool camp or clinic fees would violate this rule.
2. A student may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competing. This may include transportation, food, lodging and entry fees.
3. Keep in mind that the amateur status rule needs to be reinforced. The amateur status lists of acceptable and unacceptable items was repealed and replaced. School mementos (i.e.: rings, sweatshirts, t-shirts, event hats, etc. ) are allowed if not more than $200 and awards valued at less than $100 retail value are allowed in school and nonschool competition. In addition, athletes may receive and retain items of apparel that are worn as part of a team uniform in nonschool athletic competitions. Notice, apparel doesn’t include backpacks, duffel bags, equipment (helmets, shin guards, gloves, mitts, etc.), and implements (bats, poles, hockey sticks, etc.).
