Our Program

The sports program at Oak Knoll’s Lower School is viewed as an introduction to skill development, team concepts and sportsmanship. With an emphasis on building familiarity and comfort with game strategies, all students are given the opportunity to join the team and play. Teams are competitive and practice and play games two days per week on our state-of-the-art field turf in Summit or in our 10,000-square-foot Tisdall Hall gymnasium (83 Ashland Road, Summit, NJ 07901).
