Elba and Oakfield-Alabama SOAR
The Elba and Oakfield-Alabama SOAR teams are pleased to announce they have reached an agreement with the sharing of athletics for the 2017-2018 school year and beyond. Most notable is the designation of "Shared Teams" vs. "Umbrella Teams". Shared Teams will be recognized as O-A-E teams with O-A-E uniforms, O-A-E Logo and O-A-E colors resulting in a 50-50 split in costs between Districts. Shared Teams for 2017-2018 will be Fall Cheerleading, Football and Girls Soccer. There will also be opportunities for students to play on previously established teams from O-A and Elba in which schools will be charged on a per athlete basis. The SOAR agreement can be viewed by clicking on the link below. SOAR stands for "Shared Opportunities and Resources" and each school's SOAR team is made up of three Board members, Athletic Director and Superintendent. Many thanks to all who worked hard in realizing increased opportunities for our students.
