The San Jose Earthquakes have reserved a block of seats at their September 27th match so that we can all get inspired and raise money for the club. Invite your friends, family, neighborhood baker and extended cousins for what should be an excellent summer evening activity.
Avaya Stadium is the Earthquake’s brand-spanking-new home about an hour’s drive down in San Jose. The game is on Sunday so traffic shouldn’t be too bad.
Visit their ticket site or click the banner above and enter the promo code (alamedasc) to purchase tickets in ASC’s block of seats in Section 123 at Avaya Stadium for the Quakes September 27th match against Salt Lake City. $5 of each ticket sold goes back to Alameda SC as a fundraiser.
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.
We will be having our Club’s end of season party at SpeisekammerRestaurant (2424 Lincoln Ave, Alameda) on Monday November 17th. Doors open at 6 pm. Appetizers and drinks from 6-7 pm. Dinner will be served from 7-9 pm. This is our opportunity to acknowledge the volunteers who share their time and resources throughout the year so the kids can play soccer. We have had a great year due to the time our volunteers have invested and we want to thank each of you for your contributions.
All volunteers including coaches, assistant coaches, referees, team managers, board members and spouses are invited.
Make-up Day is scheduled for Sunday, November 2nd at Godfrey Park.

Shooting Stars will contact all players and teams that sign-up for Make-up Day and details. Teams will be assigned a photo time, just like Photo Day, and individual players will be given a timeframe which they may attend as “walk-ups”. Target release date of Make-up Day schedule is 1-2 weeks beforehand – thanks in advance for your patience!
One day camp at Harrington Park on Monday October 13th with the professional British Soccer coaches that are working with ASC Islanders this fall!
