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.
Alameda Soccer Club alumni Ethan Woon asked to let the community know about an organization that he is working with to teach the game of soccer to special needs children. If you know someone that would like to take advantage of (or donate to) this program, please contact Ethan.
E-Soccer (Exceptional Children Soccer) is an all-volunteer, inclusive soccer program where typical and special needs children aged 5 and up participate alongside each other in an inclusive environment. We are dedicated to empowering children of all abilities to reach their full athletic and social potential.
E-Soccer’s inclusion methodology promotes leadership as well as social, character, and athletic development for each child in an individualized manner. Children are taught to learn from one another.
E-Soccer is offered free of charge for all families and operates from private donations. We happily accept monetary and equipment donations at any time. If you are interested in making a donation, you can do so by going to the donations tab on the home page or by contacting your local E-Soccer Coordinator.

Dear Alameda Soccer Families,
We are delighted to welcome back Challenger Sports’ British Soccer Coaches to train our players and coaches for the 2016 season! Challenger Coaches are hosted by families in our area and committed to coaching our teams, players and coaches from February to November. They also manage and run our holiday and summer camps. Look for the coaches in their distinctive British Soccer Jerseys on your soccer field ready to help teams during practice.
The schedule of training opportunities with Challenger is right here!
Host families make this experience possible, as they house the coaches for the duration from 1 week to the full 9 month experience. The coaches have their own transportation and are taken care of by Challenger in regards to health care, wages, and flights. They are also on working visas and have gone through rigorous background checks to get into the USA and to work for Challenger Sports. They have varying backgrounds in Soccer and different experience levels. You may also recognize a face or two from previous years.
We ask that a family will provide somewhere to sleep, shower, do laundry, and evening dinners. Although the coaches are working evenings, they will be around to deliver those extra soccer practices to your kids also!!
We are looking for as many host families as possible so please contact Lee Dunne at 916‐596‐1664 or email@example.com if you are interested, to find out more information and to ask any questions.
Coach information and background information is on the attached PDF.
Thank you so much,
Challenger Sports and Alameda SC.
