AT A GLANCE
OAT ACADEMY GIVING
Urban High School athletes often on boys/girls track teams contend with old and dilapidated equipment. As a hurdle technician, professional, stable hurdles change the outcome of hurdling performance with proper training.
Due to poor quality sprinting/running shoes, young urban athletes deal with shin splints, falling arches, and stressed/pulled muscles hampering their fullest performance. These are temporary fixes to get athletes through a track season.
We have found families and athletes in need of food due to uncontrolled circumstances leading to a lack of adequate nutrition. We have provided food for low-income families in the community and athletes.
Our motto is " Succeeding in Academics and Sports." Athletes are students first, and then, athletes. We provide virtual and face-to-face tutoring for athletes and other students needing support. This year is the first time we have a bilingual tutor in light of a high Spanish-speaking population.
Due to the rise of injuries, heat illnesses, and dehydration, we are acutely aware of the athletes keeping their bodies properly hydrated.
Thank you for your support and genorosity
