Opening Day Parade – 52nd Year!

2022-08-16T18:31:21-07:00August 2nd, 2022|

Opening Day ParadeAugust 20th, 2022 7:30 AM START!

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.

Schedule

  • 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.

Equally important and inspiring is Sam’s long list of community service and outreach, specifically her involvement in the following school clubs, and also church-based programs that minister to children: Helping Hearts, as a volunteer with a mission to help end homelessness; UNICEF, as a member and an officer, participating in fundraisers and volunteering at food banks and kitchens to support an organization working to provide equal opportunities for children around the world; Vacation Bible School; Samaritan’s Purse/Operation Christmas Child; and Awana, where she spent her Friday nights teaching Bible lessons, playing games, and doing projects with children. 

Samantha chose the RAGE core value “Attitude” for her essay topic.  She says that “wearing the orange jersey represents the lessons that RAGE has taught me. The most important to me being that my attitude matters more than my abilities. If I have the right mindset, improvement will follow.”
