Bartlesville Sports Commission
The Bartlesville Sports Commission (BSC) was established in the spring of 2007 with the mission to further the support of athletics and athletic excellence in the Bartlesville area.
Our purpose is to generate an atmosphere of excitement around Bartlesville athletics and athletic excellence, resulting in increased participation and financial support; to build relationships and rekindle old relationships among Bartlesville alumni for the betterment of the Bartlesville Public School Athletics; to promote athletic events and endeavors in the Bartlesville area; and to broadly serve as an ambassador for athletics in Bartlesville.
The Bartlesville Sports Commission established the Bartlesville Athletic Hall of Fame to honor athletes, coaches, teams and individuals who have made a lasting contribution to athletics and athletic endeavors in the Bartlesville area.
In doing so, we are recognizing not only the worthy inductees but also the value of athletics to quality education, personal enrichment, family values, community, and professional success.
