BAYSIDE ACADEMY’S CORE VALUES
Excellence, Responsibility, Integrity, Leadership, Community, Respect
BAYSIDE ACADEMY BOYS GOLF
The goal of our program is to instill the core values of Bayside Academy daily to help our student-athletes be the best person they can be on and off the golf course. Our program competes in the AHSAA at the 3A classification with athletes in the 7th through 12th grade. We work hard to encourage and help our student-athletes participate in more than one sport. The athlete is also expected to give his best daily in any field of endeavor, athletic and academic. TEAM is our focus, and at the same time, we push for individual excellence. Golf is very individualized yet each individual is urged to perform at his best to help the team.
For our upcoming 2022 middle school boys golf season, we are putting together our first full middle school team. We will play five matches this season. We are looking forward to seeing our middle school program continue to grow. For the spring of 2021, we had three middle school players. This year, we have grown and have eight playing on our middle school team.
