THE SECOND-GOAL PARENT®: Developing Winners in Life Through Sports
This workshop draws from the Double-Goal Coach model (winning and life lessons) to help parents focus on the second goal, ensuring their children gain the higher value of youth and high school sports regardless of scoreboard results. For details, see the information below.
A Nominating Committee has been formed and is seeking candidates for the RAGE Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is composed of the Executive Committee and other elected Directors. The slate of candidates will be presented at the August 30, 2022 Board meeting. Nominations from the floor may be made at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in October. The candidates for the Board of Directors’ positions will be voted upon by the membership following the AGM. Those elected will take office on January 1, 2023 and will serve for a term of two (2) years.
Any and all proposals to amend the Pleasanton Girls Soccer Association Constitution must be presented to the Board of Directors at least sixty (60) days prior to the Annual General Meeting. Any member in good standing can propose a change(s) to the Constitution. The Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
Amendments to the Constitution shall be voted on at the AGM.
The first Pleasanton Youth Soccer Parade took place in 1969 and we are very excited to continue this tradition for its 52nd 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 the 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. Teams MUST be in line by 7:30am to participate.
7:30am: Parade starts at 7:30 am sharp!
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.
Clean up trash – Make sure empty donut boxes, cups, etc find a trash can or are packed out. We suggest teams who bring disposable items also bring a trash bag as street trash cans become full VERY fast.
2022 RAGE Scholarship Award for Excellence in Academic Achievement and Service to the Community
Each year, Pleasanton RAGE Girls Soccer Club recognizes and rewards scholar-athletes who demonstrate RAGE excellence in academic achievement and service to the community. Two $2,000.00 scholarships for college are awarded to high school seniors who plan to attend a 4-year or 2-year college, or a vocational or art school, and have a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or higher. Applicants are considered based on the following criteria: academic achievement; commitment to volunteerism/service; and number of years playing for RAGE. In addition, an essay is submitted defining one of the RAGE core values (Respect, Attitude, Greatness, Expectations) and explaining how the value is learned while playing soccer and serving the community.
