A New Program for Children with Special Needs
The Alameda Soccer Club is pleased to announce a new and exciting opportunity for children with special needs to enjoy the game of soccer in a true game setting. The Champions League provides the opportunity to play soccer for those children who have not been able to play under the typical league circumstances. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for children with physical and mental disabilities to experience the fun of playing soccer and the joy of being part of a team.
The Champions League is an all-volunteer, inclusive soccer program where children ages 7-16 years old with special needs can participate in a fun, supportive environment, coached by experienced soccer coaches. We provide the opportunity for the children to learn and play in a safe and fun environment.
Games will be played weekly in Alameda on Sunday afternoons from September 11 to November 6 during the typical fall soccer season. By participating in the Champions League our hope is that all players will develop social skills, better motor coordination, improved communication skills and get exercise while having a fun time.

All Alameda Soccer Club players and coaches are invited to come ride or walk with the ASC float in this year’s 4th of July parade.
We have float #141 and will depart from our staging area on Lincoln Ave, close to Willow. Please arrive no later than 9:30am if you’d like to join us.
All participants should wear ASC soccer uniforms (U8 and under, wear your Country uniform) and wear good walking shoes.
The parade route is about 3 miles from start to finish and will take about 3 hours to complete. Water and snacks will be provided.
Parents can leave players with the float for the duration of the parade but must sign players in at the beginning and out at the end with ASC float coordinators Scott MacAskill or Dave Lekashman.
We need parents to volunteer to walk with the float and supervise riders so please get in touch with Scott if you’re interested.
Parents can pick up their player at the end of the parade route on Lincoln Ave. between Webster and 8th sometime between Noon and 1pm.

Everyone involved in youth sports is becoming aware of the risks associated with concussions. ASC is adopting policies consistent with already published concussion guidelines from the US Soccer Federation (USSF), where our focus is on the health and safety of our players. (USSF’s full Recognize to Recover injury prevention initiative, which also includes information on cardiac safety and heat-related illnesses, can be found here).
All coaches must review the protocol and complete the online CDC training program on head trauma called “Heads UP: concussion in youth sports.” We also encourage parents and older players to read the protocol and complete the training course.
NOTE: Coaches, parents, and players MUST COMPLY with the referee’s decision to remove a player suspected of head trauma. That player CANNOT reenter the game until cleared by a medical professional.
Alameda Soccer Club alumni Ethan Woon asked to let the community know about an organization that he is working with to teach the game of soccer to special needs children. If you know someone that would like to take advantage of (or donate to) this program, please contact Ethan.
E-Soccer (Exceptional Children Soccer) is an all-volunteer, inclusive soccer program where typical and special needs children aged 5 and up participate alongside each other in an inclusive environment. We are dedicated to empowering children of all abilities to reach their full athletic and social potential.
E-Soccer’s inclusion methodology promotes leadership as well as social, character, and athletic development for each child in an individualized manner. Children are taught to learn from one another.
E-Soccer is offered free of charge for all families and operates from private donations. We happily accept monetary and equipment donations at any time.
