World Baseball Tournament Needs Volunteers

This post is not directly related to soccer (it involves that sport with the sticks) but it’s for a good cause and bringing kids from around the world together which is always a good thing.


Next August (8/5/17 to 8/12/17) Alameda will host the World Baseball Tournament, featuring 14 and 15 year old teams from around the world. This tournament had its beginning in 1973. Since then it has become common practice for the host country to home-stay the international players. This year the tournament will feature teams from Australia, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea, and Singapore playing against teams from San Diego, Hawaii, Fresno and, of course, Alameda.

In addition to player home-stay, we are responsible for running the tournament and providing transportation, hosting an A’s game, providing the necessary fields, umpires, field preparation, scorekeepers, announcers, opening and closing ceremonies, running the snack bar, and hosting a welcome party for all players and families involved. In addition to home-stay parents, we are looking for corporate and individual sponsors whose financial contributions and donations will be recognized through advertising during the course of the tournament. All donations are tax-deductible.

If you are interested in learning more about the tournament you can contact Ken Cala, the President of the Board, at (510) 917-8280 or kenc@lowerythomas.com, Randy Marmor, Vice-President, at (510) 418-7451 or randy4sports@hotmail.com, or Bill Dal Porto, International Relations, at (510) 521-5564 or dalportobill@gmail.com.

ASC Volunteer Opportunities – Open Board Positions

ASC Families:

The Alameda Soccer Club is a volunteer, non-profit organization. An elected Board of Directors runs ASC. Each Director is a volunteer, participating in the management of the club and its programs. Simply put, our Club exists through the involvement of a dedicated group of volunteers.

There are currently a number of open Board positions which we are actively trying to fill. Please take a moment to review the attached document listing the roles and responsibilities of all ASC Board positions. Open positions are in red.

This weekend we’ll have a booth set up at Picture Day to answer any questions interested volunteers may have. You are also welcome to attend our next scheduled Board Meeting at 7:30 PM this Monday at Alameda Hospital. The meeting room is a little difficult to find so we’ll have someone at the front of the Hospital (2070 Clinton Ave.) to direct you. If you can’t make either Picture Day or the Board Meeting and are interested in volunteering please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. Thank you for your consideration.

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 championsleague@alamedasoccer.org or call (510) 517-0508.

The registration fee is $60 for this inaugural season.

Come Ride with ASC on the 4th

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.

j4-route

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.

For additional questions or info contact Scott MacAskill at scottmac132@gmail.com or 510-282-5447.
