Fall Registration OPEN!

Posted by ALBANY-BERKELEY SOCCER CLUB on May 14 2016 at 01:28PM PDT

Important changes to our registration process:

Registration details here:

Team Assignment
Families can now self select a team assignment. The earlier one registers, the more team choices will be available. Players interested in a full team will be placed on a waitlist. Rosters will be finalized in August. ABSC will do our best to honor team selections and requests, but we cannot guarantee team placement.

USSF Initiatives
ABSC has adopted the U.S. Soccer Federation’s player development initiatives which include small sided games through U12 and birth year team formation. With the changes in team formation we want to assure families that we intend to keep teams/teammates together to the extent possible based on player birth years.

Paid Head Coach or Trainer
If you select a team that notes that it has a paid trainer or head coach. Example:
Thunder (paid Head Coach)
Thunder (
trainer 1x per wk)
On the payment page, please select the appropriate fee for the service. NOTE: should your team elect to have a trainer or paid coach following registration, you will be billed for the service at the start of the season.

Uniform Purchase
Under-5 to Under-10 Reversible uniforms now can be pre-purchased and paid for at the time of registration. If you do NOT have the full reversible kit (including shorts & white socks), you will need to order them. Pick-up will be Aug 27 and Sept 7.
For Under-11 to Under-19 the NEW ABSC Puma ‘Pitch’ uniform kit is now REQUIRED. Players must wear the complete uniform (blue home jersey, white away jersey, puma shorts, white socks). No other shorts or socks will be allowed. Puma Uniforms may be ordered online starting June 1. See our website for details.
