Introducing The Champions Soccer League

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.

To register, please click on this link and register through Sportability. For questions or further information please email Conor Neal at or call (510) 517-0508.

The registration fee is $60 for this inaugural season.

ASC Concussion Protocol

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.
