OHS Athletics Mission Statement

Oxnard High School’s Athletics Program serves as an integral part of the school’s academic mission to educate the whole person. Each coach is considered an educator who aids in the physical, social, intellectual and emotional growth of each and every student who chooses to participate. Our program strives to teach students to persevere, to work well with others and to challenge themselves, and to incorporate these lessons in a broad variety of applications.

Athletics Policies

Oxnard High School Student-Athletes must be academically eligible with a GPA of at least 2.0 and be enrolled and passing 20 semester credits. They must be well behaved and respectful at all times, and must realize that athletic participation is a privilege, not a right. Whether in the classroom or in competition, all Student Athletes must maintain a positive, respectful attitude toward all they come in contact with. Student-Athletes are expected to be positive role models while representing the Yellow Jackets. In addition, all Yellow Jacket Student Athletes are expected to be drug and alcohol free.
