Welcome to Alameda Soccer Club

Providing the opportunity for all children to learn and play the game of soccer.

Style of Play

Our style of play is based on a progressive-possession based brand of soccer with an emphasis on recognizing when to possess the ball and when to penetrate by passing, dribbling or on the run while creating multiple chances to score. Defensive balance and security are encouraged with collective pressing and quick transition.

Alameda Values to support style of play

Create a positive learning environment for our players to reach their maximum potential in the game of soccer and to help them become healthy, upstanding citizens and family members through honesty, discipline, courage, teamwork, tireless work ethic and humility.
