Once you have completed Albertson Soccer Club registration you will receive instructions to initiate your training contract with SUSA Academy.

Returning players do not need to order new uniforms unless they want to change # or get a new size. All new players must order new uniforms for the coming season. Links to purchase from our supplier SoccerZoneUSA will be sent as soon as the store is open (around July 1st, 2024). Do not order any uniforms until you receive your custom link from SoccerZone.

The registration process includes a uniform number request question. All efforts will be made to honor requests. Returning players will receive precedence over new players if there are multiple requests for the same number. If 2 new players request the same number precedence will be given to the player with the earliest date of registration.

Guest Playing: Albertson SC does not believe that "guest playing" outside of our club serves the best interests of our players or the integrity of our club culture. Accordingly, Albertson SC does not give consent for Albertson SC players to guest play for any outside team or club.

Participation in other Programs or Sports: Permitted for U14 (2010) & younger, as long as you can provide your child with sufficient rest and downtime and not sacrifice your commitment to the Albertson SC program. Participation in other non-competing soccer training is permissible ONLY with Albertson SC approved third parties. Up to U14, multi-sport participation is excellent and healthy for children. We support multi-sport athletes with proper rest, specifically, downtime from athletics for their bodies to recover.  For U15 & older, except for US National ODP activities, participation in outside soccer programs (except High School soccer) is NOT permissible. Participation in other competitive sports is not encouraged. Participation in the recreational level of other sports is permitted provided that you do not sacrifice your commitment to the Albertson SC program. Albertson SC aims to provide each player with the adequate balance between rest and competitive play (periodization). It is our opinion that too many of our athletes are not receiving the necessary amounts of rest because of an overactive athletic schedule.

High School Soccer: Albertson SC recognizes the value of the social development of its players and acknowledges that high school soccer participation may aide in this aspect. We support each family's decision to participate or not participate in high school soccer. For this reason, our U15-U18 teams have a light schedule in AUGUST and have no scheduled required activities in SEPTEMBER. We hope that this affords our high school soccer participants with an opportunity to maintain strong academics. For those who do NOT elect to participate in high school soccer, Albertson SC provides regular training opportunities during the week. 8th graders are encouraged to decline any opportunity to play varsity soccer.

Emergency Action Plan

IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY at any soccer field where an Albertson SC training session or game is being conducted, the EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN must be implemented immediately. 

  1. CALL 911 If any person (non-player) collapses at the venue, assume it is a Cardiac Arrest Emergency call to 911 immediately.
  2. TELL 911 YOUR SPECIFIC LOCATION
  3. SEARCH FOR A QUALIFIED MEDICAL PERSON ON SITE WHILE RESCUE HELP IS ON WAY
  4. ALL ACTIVITY ON THE FIELD IS STOPPED UNTIL PERSON REMOVED or directed otherwise by the facility or referees
  5. REPORT THE INCIDENT TO ROBIN LEE AT rlee@albertsonsoccer.com

Do not attempt to move the person unless a qualified rescue or health professional can determine that this can be done without causing further injury.

During inclement weather the patient must be protected from the elements and kept warm by using blankets. Do not attempt to cover someone who appears to have collapsed due to hot weather and may be suffering from heat emergency. DO NO HARM!!

Lighting Policy:
30-30 Lightning Rule: Use the 30-30 rule to determine the threat of lightning in your area. Clear the field if conditions are unsafe. Under no circumstances should you try to 'get the game in' unless the 30-30 guidelines are followed.

Thirty seconds: Count the seconds between seeing lightning and hearing thunder.  If this time is less than 30 seconds, lightning is still a potential threat. Seek shelter immediately.

Thirty minutes: After the last lightning flash, wait 30 minutes before leaving the shelter. Half of all lightning deaths occur after a storm passes. Stay in a safe area until you are sure the threat has passed.
