These training sessions are designed to help get the kids back into the swing of things and introduce them to some of new players within their revised age brackets. It will also give the families an opportunity to speak with members of the ASC competitive committee.

Pre-training tryout sessions will be held at Rittler Park in Alameda.

U14g red go undefeated in the “Santa Cruz Classic” tournament.

21787296501_7c7f1b836b_kI would like to congratulate the  U14g Red team for their outstanding weekend winning the Santa Cruz Classic in a very exciting final game.

Down 0-2 in the first half the lady Islanders fought back, and with under 2 minutes left tied the game at 2-2.  Due to tournament time constraints the game went directly to Pk’s to decide the winner.  With an unbeatable combination of accurate shooting and goalie that blocked 3 shots, they went on to win and finish undefeated.

Pre-Tryout Training Wrap-Up.

I would like to thank all the families that brought their kids out to attend our Pre-Tryout training. It was great to see all the kids out, and have the event so well attended. To re-cap, the kids were shown the drills and procedures we will use during our Competitive Tryouts on Jan 24/25

Over the weekend we got to meet about 300 Alameda soccer players, and about 48 athletes interested in playing goalie.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the ASC Tryouts! Please remember Alameda Little League moved their tryouts back one week so now both soccer and baseball are on the same weekend. We made sure times allowed for both tryouts, but remember parking around Ritler will be busy.

Competitive Soccer Tryout Times

Competitive Soccer tryouts for the 2015 season will be held at Rittler Park on January 24th and 25th. Times are by age group and are on both Saturday and Sunday. Please check the age chart to see which age group your child falls into.

Register on Sportability and bring signed medical release forms with you.

Please remember, kids should not wear their team uniforms, or any t-shirt that relates to a specific group, organization, or local team. Kids should wear a plain t-shirt and dress appropriate for 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.
