The Middle School Sports Program

Your student can experience the fun of playing for his/her school team while benefiting from participating in organized sports thanks to the Alameda Education Foundation’s Middle School Sports program!

Our Middle School Sports program is for Alameda public school 6th – 8th graders. Student-athletes compete for their school teams in co-ed Volleyball (fall), boys and girls Basketball (winter) and Track & Field (spring). Not only do student-athletes learn important life skills related to teamwork, goal-setting and sportsmanship, our program also includes an academic tie-in to help student-athletes learn to be just as successful in the classroom as on the court or field.  And it’s fun!

Students must be registered online. To register, click on the blue “sports” button on the left during the appropriate registration period. There is a participation fee per sport. Scholarships are available! Please email AEF at or call 510-337-7189 for scholarship information.

Information on tryouts and team practices and schedules is available from the site coaches.  All parents/guardians must complete a Medical & Liability Release form and turn it into the coach BEFORE a student may try out or practice!  You may download that form hereStudents selected for teams must register by clicking the blue “Sports” button on the left during the registration period. Only registered players may compete. For registration FAQs, please click here.

The Jack Capon Award

Jack Capon was a long time Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) educator who specialized in physical education. He was a tireless advocate for physical fitness and movement. He founded both the original AUSD middle school sports program and Alameda’s Special Olympics. Mr. Capon was an author of many books on movement that are still in print. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2000. He would have been thrilled that AEF restarted the middle school sports program that he cherished so dearly. In his name and legacy, AEF honors an 8th grade girl and boy student-athlete from each middle school at the end of each school year.

Student-athletes are nominated by the coaches and selected by AEF. Criteria includes sportsmanship, academic achievement, and being a caring, committed team member.
