Sabers Athletics & Activities
The SOIS athletics program follows a season-sport schedule (see diagram below). Each Sabers sport is practiced and played for one athletic season, 8-12 weeks for high school, 6-8 weeks for middle school. This differs from a year-long sports system in which athletes participate in only one sport throughout an entire year. Student-athletes benefit from the season-sport system because it enables them to participate in a variety of sports with more than one group of fellow students and to become better all-around athletes. Students are not committed to participating in a sport the entire school year, allowing them time to pursue other interests and concentrate on their studies.
