T-Shirt Colors for Opening Day

For Opening Day once you are assigned to a team and your coach contacts you, please wear any T-shirt you have as close as possible to your team color.  DSC_0507

Actual team shirts are given out Week 2.
If you don’t have the color, any T-shirt is fine.  Cleats are great but you can play in sneakers.

Everyone must have Shin Guards to play.
(No Exceptions)

We will have some for sale at the Concession Stand ($10).

See you on the field~

Parking Restrictions

REMINDER to: Coaches, Assistants, Parents, and Staff – On Saturday as well as practice nights during the week, please pull down the road and park in the lot. We value our relationship with Albany High and have been asked Not to *Stop & Drop* our kids on the roadway.

They can’t have a bottle neck on that road at anytime (especially in an emergency situation) If people are parked on the entry road please keep it to “one side only” – Thank you all for your cooperation – Please spread the word…

Who let the dogs out?

While we love our pets we are asking again to Please leave them at home.  The school and the soccer league do not want animals on the field where the children play for safety and hygienic reasons.  We again thank you for spreading the word…

AYS Remembers

This year included members of our teams from coaches to parents and kids marching alongside those who chose to remember soldiers who paid the ultimate price for our freedom during Albany’s Memorial Day Parade….
