The US Womens National Team are one of the most succesful soccer teams (men or women) in history. With 3 World Cups, 4 Olympic gold medals, 8 CONCACAF Gold Cups, and 10 Algarve Cups. They kick off their 2019 World Cup campaign on Tuesday June 11th. We are sharing this World Cup schedule with our members to make sure you don’t miss any USWNT action and to hopefully encourage our players to watch as much soccer as possible this summer! As France host what is set to be one of the most competitive women’s World Cups ever, Arlington Soccer Club want to wish our women good luck against the worlds best!
The ASC had 19 (!) teams participate in the Natick Tournament this past weekend. In addition to being honored with not one, but two Sportsmanship Awards, 6 Arlington teams competed in the finals.
The boys grade 8 Aces (BAYS Division 1A) won the tournament in the Boys U14 Alpha group, with the girls grade 5 Wolverines (BAYS Division 3E)winning the Girls U11 Gamma group. Congratulations to all teams on a successful tournament weekend!
Thanks to the efforts of long-time ASC intown coach, Steve McHugh, a town in Zambia recently received a shipment of donated ASC equipment and uniforms. The message from the coordinator on the ground indicated…”the school cancelled classes and it was quite a morning…the soccer games, 3 of them… went on for hours. It turned into a field day for the kids; younger kids were playing games like tag, with sock balls and plastic bag balls. Most of the kids kicked off their shoes and played in socks or barefoot on grassy dirt with stones, etc. The girls played at the level of JV teams – fun to watch!”
