Middle School Sports

The Middle School Sports Program

Your student can experience the fun of playing for their 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!

Information on tryouts is available from your coach.  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 here.  

If your student is elected for the team, your coach will give you a player letter inviting you to register;  do not register unless your coach has provided you with this letter.

There is a participation fee per sport, but AEF offers scholarships so that no student is turned away. To request a scholarship, please click here during the registration period. Scholarship requests should be made after your child is selected for the team and before you register online.

Once you have been invited to register (and received a scholarship if eligible), please click on the blue “sports” button on the left during the appropriate registration period. Only registered players may compete. Please refer to your player letter for deadlines.  For registration FAQs, please click here.

Information on the particular sports, including rules and season schedules (as available) may be found here:

Track and Field

For information about tryouts and practices, please contact your school coach.  For information on registration, scholarships and general program questions, please email

The Jack Capon Award

Jack Capon was a long time Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) educator who specialized in physical education. He was atireless 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.
