The first Pleasanton Youth Soccer Parade took place in 1969 and we are very excited to continue this tradition for its 51st anniversary! The parade has become a fun event for all Pleasanton families to enjoy and we hope you will all join us in this great chance to bond as one community.
6:45am: If you are attending the parade this year, please arrive at St. Mary and Main in downtown Pleasanton to line up and assemble with your team.
Teams will line up by age group, the youngest in the front and oldest in the back.
RAGE teams will line up on one half of the street, BUSC on the other.
Arrive early as parking can be difficult, and lining the teams up takes some time.
7:30am: Parade starts.
Route: South on Main, west on Angela, north on Peters, end at Peters and St. Mary.
Keep our downtown clean
Please do not create costumes that shed – NO feathered boas, beads, or tinsel, all of which require hours of post parade cleanup by members of our club.
Do not throw candy or trinkets – doing so is a violation of our parade permit.
Make sure empty donut boxes, cups, etc find a trash can or are packed out.
COVID PARDADE GUIDELINES
As the Pleasanton Youth Soccer Parade makes its return, we will be implementing the following public health measures:
– During assembly prior to the parade, age groups will be more widely spaced than in previous years in order to allow for more distancing between individual teams.
– During assembly, we encourage you to remain with your team as much as possible and to stay on your proper (RAGE/BUSC) side.
– Parade participants may choose to wear masks as an additional layer of protection, and this choice must be respected at all times by others in attendance.
– And, as always, if your player is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if you have had a case in your household in the past two weeks, please keep your player home.
RAGE & BUSC will offer a practice ACT/SAT on April 8, 2021, from 10 am-1 pm, at Huntington Learning Center. The cost is only $25 and the registration link to be sent in a future email. Read below as to why completing one of the tests will help set you apart!
ACT/SAT- Why test optional is not an option
With COVID causing standardized tests to be postponed/cancelled, many colleges and universities have shifted to test-optional, test flexible, or test blind admissions models. With this in mind, many parents and students alike may think that standardized tests are no longer necessary for building a strong college application. While it may seem that way, the truth is that there are still many reasons your student should consider taking standardized tests-
Test optional is just that – an option. Good test scores can still set you apart.
Many merit scholarships still rely on standardized test scores.
Many college majors or programs may still require a test score.

RAGE IS BACK ON THE FIELD and week 1 is in the books!
It was a successful week back on the field in our camp format and it was a pleasure to be working with our players on the pitch once again! It was great for the girls to have fun being together again while working on ball mastery and soccer fitness! Most importantly, health and safety is always our number one priority; our environment requires that everyone is always maintaining required physical distancing, we are training in small groups and have thorough sanitation and health screening procedures. Thank you to all of the hard work from RAGE leadership and to all who have pitched in to help make our returning to the field a success! We can’t wait until next week! GO RAGE!!!!
While things certainly remain fluid, US Club Soccer determined today that based on federal recommendations, all in person soccer activities will continue to be suspended through at least April 30th. We hope to return to the field in early May, but will continue to follow the lead of the CDC, state and local public health agencies, as well as our soccer governing bodies. Based upon the mandates and recommendations of these agencies, we will update you as more is learned later in April.
At this stage NorCal Premier Soccer is considering several contingency plans, including an extension of the Spring competition season through the Summer, cancellation of the season altogether, and how the tryout/placement window will be handled if we are unable to conduct placements as planned in May. Additionally, they are considering potential refunds based upon if and when the season resumes. They will not be able to make this determination however, until a firm return-to-play date is established and potential season extension confirmed. If we are refunded any of these competition related fees, we will certainly pass them back to our members and communicate that process as soon as we learn more. The same is true for the ECNL, who is continuing to assess whether games and events will be cancelled or postponed. That said, we will return to ECNL competition no earlier than May 4th, as our ECNL games on May 2nd and 3rd will no longer take place at that time. We will also be able to address the handling of any previously collected travel funds once we receive confirmation regarding future ECNL events being cancelled versus postponed/rescheduled.
We are very pleased with the interaction and distance learning we’ve been able to conduct between our coaches and players over the past 2 weeks. Through the month of April, we will continue with this development platform and structure in order to take advantage of the opportunity to partner with our players in the following areas: growing their soccer IQ with our weekly match analysis and other tactical assignments; building their technical skills with assigned ball workouts; and maintaining fitness levels with our weekly workout assignments. Additionally, our team video conference calls have been an important way for our coaches and players to check in on each other and maintain our team and community bonds. Our coaches have been working hard to teach your daughters in this new sphere, and we thank them for their efforts in learning new technologies to optimize player development and create a positive experience for you.
We thank you for your partnership in these trying times and look forward to seeing you all out on the pitch as soon as we are able. In the meantime, we wish you, your families and loved ones optimal health and safety.
