Hello potential ALA Athletes. In addition to excellent academic opportunities at ALA, we also provide opportunities to engage in interscholastic athletics. We play several different sports here throughout the school year. Sports played at our school are Girls and Boys Volleyball, Girls and Boys Basketball, and Girls and Boys Soccer. Each sport has a six-week season that includes at least three 2-hour practices and at least one game per week that will take place after school. At the conclusion of each season, you will participate in a one-day Saturday tournament where we will compete against a minimum of two other intermediate schools.
According to SAUSD Board Policy:
- To be eligible to participate in extracurricular and co-curricular activities, students in grades 6-12 must demonstrate satisfactory educational progress in the previous grading period, including, but not limited to: (Education Code 35160.5) Maintenance of a minimum of 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in all enrolled classes. Your grades will be checked weekly to ensure you are eligible to participate.
ALAE Athletics has a commitment to all Student-Athletes. The student-athletes always come first.
