Middle School Sports

Home of the “Junior Jets”

We have three amazing middle-school sports seasons each year - Volleyball (coed) in the Fall, Basketball (separate boys’ and girls’) in the Winter, and our Track and Field (coed) in Spring.

 

Not only do student-athletes learn important life skills related to teamwork, goal-setting and sportsmanship, but our program includes 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.  

 

Previous experience isn’t an absolute requirement for any of our sports - although due to limits on roster size, volleyball and basketball teams are selected competitively.

 

Our sports are staggered so that a student can participate in all of them.  We hope that your student will consider more than one sport in our year - for the great team environment, for the conditioning and discipline, and as a way to further get to know their fellow athletes.

 

All student-athletes must have and maintain a 2.0 or better GPA, and have an attendance record in good standing.

There's a lot more information about the AEF middle school sports program at http://alamedaeducationfoundation.org/programs/sports/

 

Volleyball

We’ve already seen great interest for volleyball.  Our meets will be at the Alameda point gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Practices are Mondays and Wednesdays after school.

 

Coach Frances met with potential players for a few minutes after school on both Wednesday and Thursday this week.  She handed out medical release forms to go home and be completed by parents/guardians.   Completed forms are required before a player can step on to the court for tryouts. 

 

Coach Frances announced the first round of scrimmage and tryouts here on campus, Friday right after school.  The second round of tryouts will be Tuesday the 29th, those at Alameda Point gym at 4pm.

Please have your student see Coach Frances – known to everyone here as the school nurse – in her office within the main office, or Mr. Beering in room 407, for more information.

 

Basketball

Girls’ basketball teams will begin to organize in mid-October.  Teams are mixed 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.   We’re expecting to field two teams, one playing in the more competitive Division I league.  Games are at the Alameda Point gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

 

Coach Brandi will call an information meeting of interested students somewhere around the last week of October.  All interested Junior Jet girls are encouraged to try out.   Medical release forms completed by parents/guardians are required before a player can step on to the court for tryouts.  After a few workouts, Coach Brandi will provide an invitation letter and registration information to players who will go on to the teams. 

 

Boys’ basketball teams will begin to meet in January, right after the winter break.  The competition season will be six weeks in February and March.  Teams are mixed 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.  We’re expecting to have two teams, one playing in the more competitive Division I league.  Our games are at the Alameda Point gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Coach Tim will call a meeting of interested students either right before or right after the winter break.  Medical release forms completed by parents/guardians are required before a player can step on to the court for tryouts.  After a few workouts, Coach Tim will provide an invitation letter and registration information to players selected for the teams. 

 

Track and Field

This coed season includes all 6-8th grade students competing side-by-side in separate grade-level boys’ and girls’ divisions.  Coach Debra will begin to meet with interested athletes in early March.

Our track events range from 100m to the 1600m, plus the 4X200m relay.  Our three field events are the 6lb shot put, long jump, and mini javelin.  We have four city-wide Track and four Field meets in April and May.  Students have the opportunity to compete in both track and field.

Our Track and Field meets are wonderful events.  All of Alameda’s schools meet together on one field.  Hundreds of student athletes share this amazing experience.  When the schools get together we get a sharing of all of the coaching expertise from across the island.

Coming near the end of our academic year, Track and Field creates a conditioning that will carry over into summer sports, or to AEF-sponsored Alameda Asteroids summer cross-country team http://alamedaeducationfoundation.org/aef-alameda-asteroids-hosts-middle-school-cross-country-meet/
