We will share tryout and more information on team formation and 2020/21 player fees in early May. In the meantime, to help ASC plan for next year. We would like for you to register for tryouts now. Registration is free, and knowing our numbers by age group will be key to planning for next season in terms of teams, coaches, and facilities.
ASC has been serving children in Alameda for decades. ASC is a non-profit organization that provides the opportunity for over 1300 youth soccer players to participate in this wonderful sport each year. Our club prides itself on keeping fees as low as possible while covering all fixed costs. In addition, we offer generous scholarships to families with financial need so that no child is ever turned away.
We want to keep everyone updated on how the club is dealing with the COVID-19 health pandemic. To do this we will send out an update every Monday with any new information. We will also send out updates if anything significant arises during the week.
As of now we are waiting for further guidance from our soccer governing organizations on how to proceed with the spring season. Currently, all in person activities have been cancelled untill April 12th in compliance with US Club Soccer and California Governor Gavin Newsom’s directives to help protect public health and safety. The ASC board and other groups have been holding regular online meetings to formulate a plan for moving forward.
Players can continue their individual training. The following resources are available:

The recreational soccer season (Jack London Youth Soccer League) will tentatively begin on Saturday April 4, with 8-10 scheduled matches, and end the weekend of June 6-7. No matches will be played on Easter Sunday or Memorial Day Weekend.
Practices are typically held once a week for U7 and U8 teams and twice a week for U10 and above. There are no separate practice sessions during the week for U6 (Sunday practices/games only = one hour).
Once teams are formed, coaches will provide families with further information. Any child 5 years and older can register to play on a Recreational team. The focus is on having fun, learning the game, and playing with friends/schoolmates. Players can request to play with their friends or with a specific coach on the registration form.
