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. By participating in the Champions League our hope is that all players will develop social skills, better motor coordination, improved communication skills and get exercise while having a fun time.

The registration fee is $25 for the season. Register through Sportability. REGISTRATION
