Alameda DGC (Do Good Corica) Middle School Golf League
Welcome to the Alameda DGC (Do Good Corica) Middle School Golf League page!
The opportunity to create a competitive Middle School Golf League in Alameda is an exciting one. The Alameda DGC Middle School Golf League is a collaboration between Corica Park Greenway Golf and All Good Living Foundation’s Do Good Sports Club. Our middle school golf league is coached by Alameda High School men's golf coach, Nick Wolf, and we also recruit high school golf team mentors.
It is designed to advance our shared mission of removing barriers and expanding access to golf and outdoor recreation for local youth. We believe that sports offered in an engaging, accessible format can deliver tremendous physical and emotional benefits and be leveraged to nurture leadership, life skills, and academic success.
Why Middle School?
- 70% of kids stop playing sports at age 13. (National Alliance for Youth Sports)
- Low-income youth are six times more likely to quit sports before middle school due to costs. (Aspen Institute)
- The average age juniors stop playing golf regularly is 11.8. (Aspen Institute)
- Tournament experience before high school creates a path to compete at a higher level, but opportunities for competitive play before high school are limited and typically expensive.
- Among the 20+ sports included in a recent Aspen Institute parent survey, golf ranked highest for lack of local teams as a barrier to play.
All Alameda middle school students can join a golf league for FREE at Corica Park Golf Course. This middle school golf league practices on Wednesday afternoons, and the golf league season starts in November and continues into February. There are spots for 36 players.
Equipment will be provided if needed.
