Golf

Dear 2018 OIS Potential Golfers & Parents,

Golf is back at OIS! Last year, OIS Golf was the THREE-PEAT League Champion! We had a great season with awesome coaching, great field access, incredible parent volunteers and a strong OIS Golf Team to make this happen. We will continue the two-team structure with a 2-day per week Team called 2D and a 3-day per week team called 3D. 6th Graders who qualify will be invited to play on the 2D team.  

We are thrilled that OIS Golf has continued to grow however; we have limited space and are targeting 16 players on the 3D team and no more than 20 players on the 2D Team. For those new to golf, there are great programs outside of OIS such as Coach Eric Jone’s Golf Academy and First Tee.

Additionally, this program can only be successful with the volunteer support of the players’ parents. All parents should plan to share carpool duty, supervise practices or help with logistics.


Team Meeting: We will hold a Mandatory Meeting on Monday, March 5, 2018 at 4pm in the OIS Library. All registered players and a parent MUST attend this meeting to participate in tryouts.

Tryouts

We will conduct a 2-day tryout on March 19 & 20 to evaluate abilities and determine selection for the 2018 team. The players will be divided into 2 groups for tryouts. On 3/19, Group 1 will play 9 holes at Buchanan Fields and Group 2 will play at another location and then the groups will switch courses on 3/20. The tryout details will be shared at the Team Meeting on 3/5. We will need parents to sign up to drive and chaperone at the tryouts. All players are required to have their own appropriately sized equipment and proper golf attire. On tryout days, all players will bring their clubs to school in the morning and put them in the storage room next to the MPR.

Team Selection Announcement: We will announce the team selection on Friday, 3/23. Players should sign up by paying the enrollment donation on Bulldog Webstore—if you do not make the team or decline the invitation, your donation will be fully refunded.  The 2D Team Enrollment will be $350 and the 3D Team Enrollment will be $500. Included in the enrollment fee will be the team uniform (OIS Golf Shirt and hat) that each player will keep at the end of the season. If you’re unable to pay the enrollment donation, please contact Dianna Langer at oissports@orinda.k12.ca.us
