OMI Athletic Facilities

In October 2010, OMI entered into a proud partnership with Coast Guard Island, Alameda, and the base is home to the majority of our high school interscholastic teams.  Other practice and game facilities include the College of Alameda, Marcus Foster Gymnasium, and Bushrod Recreation Center.

The 67-acre Coast Guard Island is an active military base and special entry requirements apply.  OMI's high school soccer, volleyball, basketball, and softball home games are all played on the island.  Visitors to the island must have the following documents to gain access:
