Whether he wants to pursue his Eagle Scout rank or simply enjoy all these experiences -- and so many more -- he is welcome. Troop 3 is open to boys ages 11-18 and meets on Tuesday evenings on Bay Farm Island 7:30-8:30pm. If you have questions about the troop we would be happy to discuss.

Alameda Soccer Club

Champions Soccer League: Program for Children with Special Needs

Registration is now open for the second season of Champions Soccer. The Champions League provides the opportunity to play soccer for those children who have not been able to play under the typical league circumstances. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for children with physical and mental challenges to experience the fun of playing soccer and the joy of being part of a team.

The Champions League is an all-volunteer, inclusive soccer program where children ages 7-17 years old with special needs can participate in a fun, supportive environment, coached by experienced soccer coaches. We provide the opportunity for the children to learn and play in a safe and fun environment.

Games will be played weekly in Alameda on Sunday afternoons from September 10 to November 12 during the typical fall soccer season.
