Mission Statement: Hustle and Heart Set us apart!
Provide special needs children, ages 4 to 14, the environment to participate in an athletic team activity where the experience helps to stimulate their emotional and social growth.
Our program will focus on social interactions while learning to exercise regularly. Our trainer is a Special Education Teacher and was a College soccer player who can effectively identify the strengths and needs of different children, dealing with each individually, with a goal to bring new joy to their lives.
"Hustle and heart sets us apart" will be our philosophy and motto, helping to build confidence within all participating children.
The Albertson Challenger program will be offered to children with special needs between the ages of 4 and 14. We will be hosting a 45 minute session 11:00 AM Saturdays at the East Hills Park.
Training will be conducted by to our certified Special Education Teacher and peer mentor volunteers.
Overview of Club Policies
The Club has developed certain policies as a foundation for promoting sportsmanship at all levels. Some of these include:
Zero Tolerance Policy

The Club has adopted a “Zero Tolerance Policy” towards verbal or physical abuse or harassment by anyone involved in the club in any capacity. Severe penalties including seasonal suspension may be incurred by anyone demonstrating inappropriate behavior as deemed by the Board members of the Club.
As a member of the Albertson Soccer Club I pledge to:
