Tryout Times For Competitive Soccer – Birth Years 1998-2002

U14 Girls Alameda Islanders 2015
U14 Girls Alameda Islanders 2015

Tryouts for those born 1998 – 2002 are scheduled for 2/20 & 2/21 at Rittler Park (map).

Register NOW for tryouts on Sportability. Also bring water and, if possible,  a soccer ball.

Finally, do 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 soccer and the weather.

 

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.

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.

A great team effort!

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.
