Spring registration opens on Monday Feb 8, 2021. We are so excited to have players back on the field! It’s been a long year. Hoping everyone is safe and healthy, and the kids are ready to play soccer. Currently, our plan is to have players practice twice weekly with their team, while we wait to get the green light to go back to playing games. The practice schedules will be set once registration is closed and teams are formed.
The meeting will be held virtually on January 31, 2021 at 7pm and is open to all Alameda Soccer Club members (1 person per registered player). Please attend if you are available and interested in learning more about ASC for the coming year. We will be voting on revised bylaws and electing the board for the coming year.

We are very excited to be back on the field. We hope your children are enjoying being back on the field with their coaches and fellow Islanders. As of now, NorCal has tentatively scheduled games to start in 2020. However, we don’t know at this point if or when games will actually be allowed by the State and County. For now, we are going forward with planning for socially distanced team training sessions for the fall.
Alameda Islander Families, 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.

[Text of an email sent out to all ASC family members earlier today] Alameda Soccer Families, Thank you very much for the families that took the time to complete the Annual Parent Survey. Feedback of this nature is crucial in Club development and is looked at closely to identify areas for improvement. The following have been identified through this and previous years surveys as areas within the Club families feel we have room for improvement.
