Foothill and Amador High School Alumni will be playing in the 11th Foothill-Amador Alumni Soccer Games on Saturday, January 4th. There will be 2 games featuring Men's and Women's soccer players from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's.
The games have become an annual event that benefit the Soccer Programs at Foothill and Amador High Schools. All gate receipts ($8 adults and $5 students) and Snack Bar proceeds will go directly to the programs. (Presale Tickets Adult Only). Proceeds pay for Uniforms, Equipment and Travel.
The teams will be playing for trophies that will be awarded to the schools of the winners. The winning school will gain possession of the trophies each year. Games during the 1st ten years featured victorious teams from both Amador and Foothill.
Ryan Gordon was a 2003 graduate of Foothill High School. He was killed in a boating accident shortly after graduating. He played soccer at Foothill for 4 years and was planning on attending Santa Barbara City College where he planned to continue playing soccer. The original Alumni Games were organized to fund a scholarship that benefits a graduating member of the Foothill Women's or Men's soccer team who aspire to play soccer in college. Since the 1st year all proceeds now go directly to the Men's and Women's soccer programs at the two high schools.
If you are an ex-soccer player from Amador or Foothill and would like to play, you can get more information and/or register at All-Star Sports. There is a $20 fee to play. The deadline to pre-register is Thursday, January 2nd.
Players and fans are invited to the Hop Yard Alehouse after the games. 15% of proceeds will be donated to the programs.
There will be "special entertainment" during each of the halftimes this year!
