OMMS Sports Information:

My name is Kristi Hubbard and I am the OMMS/OMHS swim team sponsor and history teacher at the high school. If your student is interested in joining the swim team, please read the information below and then email me with any questions or concerns.  Your student must be a part of a swim club for practices and regular meets. They have to compete with your club and meet certain time standards. Here is the link to check those times: Time Requirements for Sectionals and State.  If they are not a part of a swim team/club then they cannot participate on the high school team. *Once your student have times that meet the minimum requirements please email those to me with the name of the meet.*  Sectionals will be November 18-19 at the CrossPlex and the state meet is December 2-3 in Auburn.  The fee to join the swim team is $75. I know this is an increase since last year, but I had to order swim caps and still pay the registration fees for sectionals and state.  Please feel free to email me with any questions.

If you are interested in joining Oak Mountain Middle’s FIRST Indoor Track and Field team, please sign up by following the link below. Our first practice is November 7th.
