Athletics & Sports

Athletics Overview & Calendar

Montera Sports are a part of the Oakland Athletic League (OAL) for Middle School Sports. We play particular sports in particular seasons to align with OAL and always plan to field teams in every sport. Middle school sports correlate with high school sports seasons. Most sports teams at Montera are competitive, meaning students try out for the team (occurs after school at Montera), practice twice a week, and have competitive games against other middle schools on Saturdays. In some cases, there is a club sport (such as golf) with no competitive game on Saturdays. Expect a season ending banquet to celebrate the team’s season.

An email will go out to families for your students to sign up / try out for our competitive sports teams. Teams are coached by teachers and volunteer parents - we are always looking for coaches! Email sports@monterapto.com if interested.

Congrats to our Toro CrossCountry teams! Girls CrossCountry won the championship! Boys CrossCountry took 2nd place on November 19, 2023! Way to go Toros! Each of our Fall sports teams have have tremendous success this year. We look forward to celebrating them at the Fall Sports Banquet!
