Broken Arrow Tiger Athletics shares the philosophy of the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association (OSSAA) in promoting “important education and cultural values, attitudes, appreciations and skills – including high standards of good sportsmanship and effective citizenship” for its student-athletes.
More than 1,600 students in grades 8 through 12 participate in the following competitive programs: basketball, cheer, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis, track & field, wrestling, football, dance, fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball, and volleyball. Opportunities are also available for students to enroll in sports medicine or to serve as an athletic student-manager. Student-athletes at Broken Arrow High School and the Broken Arrow Freshman Academy are enrolled in a sixth period athletic class. Football, basketball and wrestling are offered as sixth hour courses in middle school.
To encourage an atmosphere of competition and excellence among student-athletes, athletic administrators established Tiger S.T.R.I.P.E.S., which stands for Service, Trust, Respect, Integrity, Positive Attitude, Excellence and Self-Discipline. This program strives to instill attributes within Broken Arrow athletes that go beyond the game.
