AUSD Athletics Up and Running Again
Posted 3/30/21

After nearly a year-long suspension, AUSD’s high school sports are now coming back on line. As of March 1, Swim and Dive, Track and Field, Girls Tennis, Boys and Girls Golf, Baseball, Softball, Cheer, and Football have all begun their official seasons. Badminton singles is tentatively set to begin April 12; Badminton doubles, Boys and Girls Water Polo, Boys and Girls Soccer, Boys and Girls Volleyball, and Boys and Girls Basketball are set to begin April 19.  Volleyball and Basketball  may need to begin their seasons outdoors and continue outdoors until AUSD and WACC receive guidance on how to safely conduct those sports indoors.


As a reminder, AUSD does not control when athletics open or the season and competition dates.  In addition to state and county health agencies, our season start and end dates for practices and competitions are set  by the West Alameda County Conference, which is made up of 12 member schools and 8 different governing bodies. 


The Alameda Education Foundation (AEF), which manages our middle school sports program, is offering an in-person cross country running club and a site-based track & field program this spring for 6th - 8th grade students who are currently enrolled in AUSD or Alameda public charter schools. The cross country season began March 8 and will end April 8.  The middle school track & field program will begin in late April or early May. More information is available on the AEF website.
