Alameda Special Education Parent Support Group

The Alameda Special Education Parent Support Group [ASPEDPSG] was created by parents and supported by parents, students, educators, and community members. The ASPEDPSG strives to support our families, build the ASPEDPSG community, and promote communication within the Alameda community. ASPEDPSG is a committee of the Alameda PTA Council.

Parents, students, educators, and community members are welcome to participate in group meetings. ASPEDPSG holds quarterly meetings during the Alameda Unified School District school year. ASPEDPSG Meetings offer an opportunity for you to share resources, ask questions, and build community, and are organized with the first hour as a program presentation; the second hour of the meeting is held for confidential parent sharing.

Please see ASPEDPSG Meeting Information page for more meeting details. To learn more about the Alameda Special Education Family Support Group, visit ASPEDPSG Website. Got questions? Contact ASPEDPSG via email.

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. 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
