Thank you all for a great 4th of July parade

I would like to thank Erik Coker, our Treasurer, for providing the transportation for our very successful ASC entry into this year’s parade. I would also like to thank Dave Lekashman, our Secretary, for co-chairing this effort with me.
Thanks to the parents of our ASC players that helped supervise our riders during the parade.
Mostly, I want to thank our 30+ float riders that truly made it a successful event.  They helped hand out registration flyers and interacted with the youth and families that watched the event, promoting ASC soccer in an awesome way.
It was lots of fun for all and best of all no injuries to report, only a few minor stumbles.
Have a great summer and look forward to a fantastic Fall soccer season.
Scott MacAskill
ASC Field Coordinator

Come March with the ASC on July 4th

Flag-Soccer-Ball

Join your teammates on the Alameda Soccer Club float in Alameda’s July 4th parade!

The ASC float will be on Lincoln Ave (probably somewhere near Walnut St.). Arrive no later than 9:00am. Riders will be managed by ASC representatives and parent volunteers.

There will be a sign in sheet for each rider/player that will need to be filled out by parent or guardian providing all needed contact information. No rider will be allowed to leave float without showing their proper ID and signing the rider out.

Wear your full ASC uniform (no cleats of course). U8 and under in their International uniforms.

Younger players will ride on the float and older ones will walk along the route with props and also be asked to hand out Fall registration flyers to spectators.

Parents can pick riders up at end of parade on Lincoln between Webster and 8th.

Riders do not need to complete the entire parade on the ASC float. Riders that depart float early will need to be signed out by parent/guardian per sign in sheet.

Water and snacks will be provided for all riders. Please have your rider wear sunscreen and have good walking shoes.

Parent Volunteers needed!

If you are interested in helping out with the float during the day of the parade or helping decorate the float please contact Dave Lekashman at secretary@alamedasoccer.org.

Announcing the ASC Volunteer Incentive Program

Give back to your community, then get something back for you and your team.

The ASC Volunteer Program has been established to allow parents and families to be reimbursed for volunteer activities associated with ASC teams and the club. As you may have noticed the fees have been raise slightly this year to cover expenses and to improve the training for all ASC players. In order to offset some of the fee increases you are encouraged to volunteer for listed activities and at the end of the season can request a reimbursement towards the fall player fee. Many youth sports organizations have mandatory volunteer requirements as part of the team participation however ASC has decided to let the parents / guardian decide if they want to volunteer to lessen the costs of player fees. Volunteer activities help the coaches, the parents and the children during the season to make it much more fun and spreads out the time commitment.

Upon request $60 will be credited after completion and verification of approved listed volunteer activities. Request for volunteer reimbursement should be sent to volunteercoordinator@alamedasoccer.org. For full details, please see the Volunteer page.
