Middle School Athletics

Home of the “Junior Jets”

The Encinal “Junior Jets” participate in the city-wide middle school competitive sports league run by the Alameda Education Foundation.  This program includes coed volleyball in the Fall, Girls Basketball and Boys Basketball in the Winter, and Track & Field in the Spring.  

DUE TO COVID-19, WE DO NOT YET KNOW WHEN THE MIDDLE SCHOOL SPORTS PROGRAM WILL BEGIN.  PLEASE CHECK THE ALAMEDA EDUCATION FOUNDATION WEBSITE FOR UPDATES.

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.

You can reach Mr. Beering, middle school athletic director, in room 407 or at fbeering@alamedaunified.org
