Want to weigh in on the future of youth athletics in Oakland? The Special Committee on the Future of the Oakland Athletic League meets at 7 p.m. Thursday to discuss such questions as:
“Should the OAL join the North Coast Section of CIF? Should Charter Schools Participate in the OAL? What resources are required to adequately maintain the OAL? What resources are required to adequately compete in the North Coast Section of CIF?” (from agenda)
Michael Moore Sr., the new OAL commissioner, is recommending that the OAL remain in its own section, rather than joining the North Coast Section. He listed the pros and cons of joining the larger section here.
That document also includes some interesting information on the sports teams fielded at each school, the number of student-athletes on each team, and the district funding allocated to them.
I didn’t know there was a bowling team in Oakland!
What’s your opinion about the questions Moore and the special committee have raised?
