Make up Photos at Scott MacAskil’s House

Coaches,

Scott MacAskil has received photos ordered from Make-up Picture day Nov. 6.

You can pick them up at his house: 132 Haight Ave, big yellow house at cross of Lincoln and Haight (with camper in driveway). They will be in plastic bins on my porch in order of age groups.

There will also be a clip board with a list. Please cross off your team once you have picked up your team’s photo package.

Please distribute photos to your families asap.

Families should have received an email from Shooting Stars that shows the photos of their player. If they wish to order additional photo products they can do so from there.

If there are any problems or missing items please let me know.

Enjoy your photos!!

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.

2016 Islander Coaches

As we get closer to the kickoff of the 2016 Islanders Competitive season I wanted to provide those interested with a list of coaches for both the girls and boys teams as it stands today.

Special thanks to these coaches for stepping up to volunteer. It is a huge commitment and certainly does not go unnoticed by the Islanders Community.

As you will see below, based on tryouts registration numbers, there may be opportunities to form multiple teams within a particular age group. If you have an interest in coaching, assisting, or becoming a team manager please let me know. Email me at compcoordinator@alamedasoccer.org.
