Bar / Bat Mitzvah

For your special Bar/Bat Mitzvah day, let us tell you how we can make your event fun for all of your guests.

Whether it’s outdoors in the warm months or inside our sports dome in the cooler ones, a party at Oakland Yard will be one to remember and cherish.

Bring in your own caterer or let us organize the food, serve your adult guests just soda or Ketel One, have DQ serve Blizzards, there are no restrictions or penalties, we are absolutely flexible.

Kids can play indoor baseball with a home run fence, hit golf balls on their own golf range, have real baseball pitchers throw batting practice, dance, ride a mechanical bull, play basketball, have their hand cast in wax, host their own soccer tournament, watch a montage on a giant screen like at the movie theater….you dream it, we can help make it a reality.

Oakland Yard’s rental fee includes tables, chairs, dance floor, Pepsi fountain drinks, exclusive facility rental and more.

Birthday

Every party includes a coordinating athletic coach whose job is to organize the kids into whichever sport they wish to play and then keep things moving. Our non-coaching staff will organize party logistics such as food and drinks. If the weather cooperates for the use of our slip-n-slide, all children are welcome to use it.

Your athletic coordinator will move all children (kids must stay together as a group throughout your party) to the slide and then it’s cool down time! Kids need to bring their towels and bathing suits to the party. Parents: This information needs to be expressed on the party invitation.

⋆  We provide Jet’s Pizza for up to 22 children. Pizza for kids is cheese/pepperoni. It is our goal to serve enough pizza per party that extra can be taken home.
⋆  Drinks include fountain Pepsi products (lemonade and fruit punch available).
⋆  A custom birthday cake (1/4 sheet cake) - choose chocolate, white, or marble cake – ‘Happy Birthday John/Sue’ is written on the cake in color of choice.
⋆  Table coverings, and all food related paper products are included.
⋆  A fun athletic coach whose job is to organize the kids into whichever sport they wish to play and then keep things moving.
⋆  2.5 hours from start to finish.

All birthday party guests can play any of the sports listed below, changing games whenever the guest of honor feels like switching sports. All equipment is included (except baseball/softball gloves). Warm weather parties can use our slip-n-slide, towels and swim wear needed.

Corporate

The great thing about Oakland Yard is that we can organize a competitive, yet relaxed athletic ‘Olympic’ day of events for your employees to bond, compete, and laugh.

From the venerable three-legged race, to the egg toss, to a basketball three-point contest, golf chipping event, coed soccer games – you name it, we’ll organize it.

Grilled food and cold beers, we can do it. Face painting or contests for the kids, our giant slip-n-slide, no problem.

Let us share past company parties with you. From large parties of 350 and more, to smaller gathers of under 100, we can make your company party one to remember.

Fundraiser

Oakland Yard Athletics is happy to help your team or club raise funds to offset your indoor practice fees, tournament registrations, travel expenses, new uniforms, coaching staff, etc. We don’t care how your club spends the money. We want to support the programs that support Oakland Yard Athletics.

Let our event experts (parties, tournaments, food and beverages) help you raise money. If your club is a current client of Oakland Yard Athletics, the facility is yours to use. If you are not a current client and would like to take advantage of this opportunity for a fundraising event, contact us for details.

Whether you are thinking Cornhole Tournament, a Road Rally, an evening Cocktail Party for Parents on the patio, Family Day BBQ with our slip-n-slide, there are lots of ways to fundraise for your program while your families get to enjoy time bonding as a club.

We have lots of ideas to help to raise money. We’ll organize the event and give you several ideas on how to maximize the event. Let us help organize an event (cornhole tournament for all your parents within the club?) with food, drinks, music and lots of fun. Charge what you want per couple and keep 100% of that money for your program! Use our venue at no cost. We can even provide online registration to collect the money and keep track of participants, so you don’t have to deal with that!

Graduation

Why spend the month prior cleaning, buying new furniture, stressing about the weather, and working your own child’s party?

We have everything you need: newly renovated patio bar for drinks with your friends, with new seating, stainless steel bar, fire pit and awning, the sports areas for kids to play the games they like, music, an outdoor bonfire, tables and chairs, chaffing dishes for food service, and most importantly people to clean up when the party is over!

Consider having your grad party with us. Team up with other families for the best party of the season or just throw one for your WHOLE family. We have the space!

Wedding

Looking for a facility for the whole family? Do you want an atmosphere where guests can relax and play, hangout by the fire, dance under the tent and bring in your family’s favorite catering group?

Let us tell you how couples have celebrated their weddings in the past.
