House Basketball

The OBGC House Basketball program provides a forum for boys and girls to play organized basketball with the aim of teaching sound basketball fundamentals and good sportsmanship and, above all else, having a good time. The program, which is open to youngsters from grades two through twelve, consists of a boys’ league and a girls’ league. The K/1st grade clinic will be run by Tim Harwood from Harwood Basketball and will be fairly limited so enroll early to guarantee a spot.
Registration Note
The boys’ league offers options from K-12th grade: As we did last season we will attempt to separate Pee-Wee and Midget boys into individual grades i.e separating 4th and 5th and 6th and 7th. If the numbers do not work we will combine 4th and 5th in a pee-wee group and 6th and 7th in a midget group.

Clinic- Boys and Girls K and 1st
Instructional Boys – Grades 2 and 3
Pee-Wee – Grades 4 and 5
Midgets – Grades 6 and 7
Juniors – Grades 8 and 9
Seniors – Grades 10, 11 and 12

The girls’ league offers options from K-12th grade and has a total of five divisions although the Junior and Senior girls divisions are usually combined:

Clinic- Boys and Girls K and 1st
Instructional Girls – Grades 2nd and 3rd
Pony – Grades 4 and 5
Midgets – Grades 6 and 7
Juniors – Grades 8 and 9
Seniors- Grades 10 – 12

OBGC Wrestling

Posted by Brad Scott at Oct 12, 2016 10:18AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

The House/Intramural program is for beginner and intermediate youth wrestlers. The Olney Outlaw teams participate in the Damascus Sports Association Wrestling League (DSAWL). Intramural wrestlers compete in weight classes determined by an age/weight table. Matches are weekly on Saturday’s beginning in December and run through February. The season begins with a round-robin style tournament based on weight class called MatBash. The season ends with a league tournament with matches determined by each wrestler’s season record. This tournament can qualify your wrestler for the Mid-MD tournament (middle of March) which brings together other Maryland wrestling programs. Coaches will determine at the team level if they will participate in additional area wrestling tournaments throughout the season.

We are limited to twenty-two (22) wrestlers per team and will have three teams for the 2017-2018 season. A waiting list will be maintained if more registrations are received. We will do our best to honor team preferences, while also ensuring each wrestler an appropriate practice partner.

If you would like to help volunteer as a practice room coach assistant, please reach out to the Intramural wrestling Commissioner – Nicole Bouquet at All participants must be at least 6 years and no older than 14 years as of December 31, 2017. Cost is $125 and the season starts early November. Coaches will reach out to confirm practice start dates and times and locations. Please note that signing up for this program is a commitment to participating in both practices and weekly matches.

Practice Information
Intramural Olney Black (Times and Days of the week TBD)
Practices at Sherwood/Magruder High School

Intramural Olney Gold (Times and Days of the week TBD)
Practices at Sherwood High School

Intramural Olney White (Times and Days of the week TBD)
Practices at Magruder High School

As a reminder the success of this program depends on parent volunteers and assistance. The program will not run effectively without it
