Oakridge Middle School is a member of the Michigan High School Athletic Association and follows all the MHSAA rules of eligibility and competition. The MHSAA promotes a philosophy for junior high/middle school athletics that states that the program should parallel that of the academic philosophy of junior high/middle schools. Schools should encourage participation and experiences in a variety of activities. The goal of "winning" must be superceded by the goal of participation.
Oakridge Middle School is a member of the West Michigan Conference. Currently, the league members are Whitehall, Hart, Ravenna, North Muskegon, Montague, Shelby, and Mason County Central.
