About OBMS Athletics

Olentangy Berlin Middle School offers a comprehensive athletic program. All athletic programs are in Title IX compliance. New athletic offerings are added based on evidence of student interest.

If your child will be participating in an athletic program, a current physical must be on file and FinalForms must be completed prior to tryouts or first practice.

All of Olentangy’s schools are members of the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA). As OHSAA members, athletes in grades 7-12 are bound by all of the rules and regulations set forth by this governing body. If you have any questions regarding these rules please call your school’s Athletic Director or go to the OHSAA

Students, parents and coaches can find further information about the athletics program at Olentangy Local Schools in the Athletic Handbook

Any student participating in a sport must have a physical signed and stamped by a doctor and all student and parent signatures complete for the paperwork in Final Forms. Access Final Forms Here. The physical must be uploaded to the Final Forms website and the online paperwork must be complete in order to participate in conditioning, tryouts, practice, and games/meets.
