In the spirit of the holidays, we would like to thank you and your family for being a part of the Alexandria Soccer Association (ASA) family. We are so grateful to the many staff, parents and children who contribute their time, energy and resources to making our club a great place for our youth to interact with the game in our community.
The mission of Alexandria Soccer Association is to provide high quality instructional soccer programs that develop and motivate youth, build character and make a positive impact on Alexandria and the surrounding communities. In 2015, ASA engaged more than 5,000 children, ranging in age from two to nineteen years, in a wide variety of soccer programs. In addition to registering more than 3,000 recreational players, 725 travel players and over 1,000 Tots soccer participants, ASA's futsal program has grown to nearly 1,500 players. In the past year, ASA built on the core programs of the Recreation League, Travel League and Futsal leagues by attracting and developing new and existing volunteer and paid coaches. In addition, the club hired a multi-lingual outreach coordinator to strengthen its connection with all of our communities. As a direct result of improved community outreach efforts, we welcomed a record number of scholarship students from all sixteen Alexandria City Public Schools. We also added a facility coordinator and training programs coordinator to better support our members and we continue to invest in extensive training for our professional coaching staff. Please take a moment to review the entire list of ASA’s 2015/2016 accomplishments by clicking here.
We would like to extend a big thank you for all that you do as a parent and supporter of ASA. Thank you for giving countless rides to and from practice. Thank you for cheering on our many goals and successful passing combinations; and for your encouraging words when the shot pinged off the post instead of going in. Thank you for giving coaches gifts, providing halftime snacks, scheduling carpools and being sideline liaisons. Thank you especially to our many team administrators and volunteer coordinators for all that you do. Without you – your time, talents and support – ASA would not be nearly as successful and definitely not as fun for our kids to be a part of.
Please take a moment this holiday season to give thanks for our ASA community. Make sure to thank the many parent volunteers for all their terrific work. Please also consider making a financial contribution to ASA, which will support our terrific programs and allow us to make sure that anyone who loves soccer can play, regardless of family circumstances. Your financial support for ASA allows us to expand our programs and our scholarships so that we can continue to reach more children and their families with the highest of quality programming possible.
