The 2022-23 Season
Overlake enjoys a proud tradition of success - both on and off the field. The school athletic experience is unique compared to community-based athletics. In addition to the friendships, skill development, community support, and leadership development Overlake Athletics fosters, Overlake student athletes also earn high grades, develop healthy lifestyle habits, and experience one of the best opportunities at Overlake to bond with others through their team experience.

The Overlake School is proud to be a recipient of the National Athletic Trainer’s Association's (NATA) 1st team Safe Sport School Award. It is Overlake's commitment to provide a fun, competitive, and safe athletic experience for every Owl student athlete. Overlake employs a full time Athletic Trainer (AT) to ensure that our students receive the best medical care. ATs provide athletic healthcare for the prevention, acute evaluation, emergency treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning of athletic injuries. See the Athletic Training page for more information.
Upper school practices will be 2 hours in length, 2 and a half hours is allotted for early season skills assessment (first 3 days of practice). Middle School practices will be 1 hour and 15 minutes. Upper school practice is daily with occasional Saturdays. Middle school teams practice 2-3 times per week.
Program-specific game schedules, pre-season notices, and coach contact info is available on the team pages. For information about other teams' practices or games, please check out the athletic calendar.
Our program is built around our student athletes commitment to their teams. All athletes are expected to attend all practices and games. Any absence requests are to be directed to the head coach of the team. It is important to know that out-of-school activities (music lessons, tutor sessions, religion classes, club sport practices, etc.) are not excusable. Academic responsibilities such as homework are expected of each athlete and therefore are not a reason to miss athletics. If a student does not attend school because of illness, he/she is excused from athletics for the day and is expected to stay home.
Overlake believes that any student who turns out for a team should be placed on one, no matter the student's skill level or experience. We are proud of the fact that we have a wide range of athletes among our 55+ teams each year, each receiving a competitive experience and all of the benefits that playing sports provides. Athletes are placed on teams by skill level. Our league membership at both the middle and upper school levels offer rival schools who have similar philosophies, so finding appropriate competition for the most advanced, beginner, or those teams in between, is entirely possible.
Overlake's coaching staff is a talented group of experienced leaders who generally have had outstanding athletic experiences of their own and use sports as their classroom to teach the mission of our school. Though a few each year are new to Overlake, the vast majority are established role models on and off our campus who choose to coach here because of the character of the athletes, the quality of the facilities, and the support they receive.
Overlake parents are certainly role models and that extends to their behavior at our athletic events. My advice: release your child to the game, to his/her professional coach, and always remember that these are your child's athletic experiences, not your own. Don't try to fix everything - your child's role on the team, team strategies, and player rotations - that is the job of the coach. It is your child who signed up to play, let your child work within the team.
Athletes will be issued practice gear, uniforms, and equipment based on their sport and team assignment. Athletes are expected to keep all items in good working condition and return all items (except billed consumables) within one week of the end of their season.
