The Middle School Sports Program
The Alameda Education Foundation is proud to sponsor Middle School Sports at Lincoln, Wood, the Academy of Alameda and NEA/ACLC. This popular program started in the 2008-2009 school year and includes volleyball (fall), basketball (winter), and track & field (spring).
AEF’s Middle School Sports program not only gives 6th – 8th graders the opportunity to train and compete for their schools, it supports valuable life skills of sportsmanship, goal-setting, and discipline. Student-athletes must adhere to academic and conduct guidelines established by the school sites.
Student-athletes contribute a fee to help sustain the program. For the 2011-2012 school year, that fee will be $50 per student per sport. However, no student will be turned away for financial reasons. Please talk to your school coach for more details.
Student fees pay only a portion of the costs, however. AEF is actively seeking donations and grants to sustain this vital program.
Student participation packets, to be completed by both students and parents, may be found here when they become available in August.
Information on the particular sports, including rules and season schedules (as available) may be found here:
Information on tryouts and team practices and schedules is available from the site coaches.
