Football to be Played outside of St. Louis County
begins Friday, October 9, 2020
While the county is allowing moderate-frequency of contact sports to compete, high school football teams are still excluded from competition in St. Louis County. A few high schools in the county have announced they will play outside the county. Mehlville School District high schools will do so as well. Our first football games will be on Friday, October 9, 2020 vs. Mehlville High School at a site to be determined. Student athletes and their parents will be required to sign a waiver of liability in order to participate. Completed and signed waivers are due Friday, Oct. 2 at 2 p.m. to your coach or the athletic office.

Oakville High School will follow any spectator guidelines in place at the location of their games. Please continue to practice social distancing, wear face coverings, avoid large groups and wash your hands in order to reduce spread of the virus in the community. Thank you for your continued support, patience and flexibility! The ever changing landscape of this situation can be frustrating at times, together we can make these opportunities happen for our student athletes. #tigerstogether
