U17 Islanders Girls Win Norcal Gold League Championship

The Alameda Islanders 2001 Red U17 Girls team defeated Marin FC on Sunday by the score of 2-1 to win the Norcal Section 2/3/4 Gold League championship. Marin FC equalized early in the second half after Sydney Owyang put the Islanders ahead with a composed finesse shot from the edge of the penalty area. It wasn’t until late in the game that Juliene Grandy scored the decisive goal, putting in a rebound of Elle Kallsen’s free kick which rattled off the cross bar with three minutes to play. The Islanders finished League with a record of 7-1-1 with twenty-one goals scored to only five allowed.

With this title, this team represents the first Alameda Islanders club ever to win a league championship in the Gold division.

The Islanders are coached by Adam Butler, assisted by Pia Abola. The champion Alameda Islanders 01 Red are: Alina Soto, Zoe Peterson, Sydney Owyang, Elle Kallsen, Megan Stilling, Claire Rizzo, Kate Crawford, Sofia Faaland, Margaux McNeil, Molly Cha, Juliene Grandy, Julia Kennedy, Anya Balthasar, Leah Rice and Olivia Sprouse.

Team parent shared this video of the go ahead goal in the final minutes that secured the championship.

Registration Open for Champions Soccer!

ASC’s Soccer Program for Children with Special Needs

 

Registration is now open for the second season of Champions Soccer. 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 challenges 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 7-17 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 10 to November 12 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. The registration fee is $25 for the season.

To register, please register through Sportability.

For questions or further information please email Conor Neal at championsleague@alamedasoccer.org or call (510) 517-0508.

Registration is open until September 1st.

For tryouts players should not wear their team uniforms, or any t-shirt that relates to a specific group, organization, or local team. Players should wear a plain white t-shirt and dress appropriate for soccer and the weather. If a player wears a team jersey or t-shirt they will be asked to change. This is so our tryouts are a fair opportunity for all kids trying out. If possible, they should also bring a soccer ball.
