With winter break over, Alameda athletes are also back to their respective sports teams. Though there has been rainy weather as of late it has not stopped Alameda soccer teams from competing on the pitch.

All Alameda soccer teams have gotten off to slow starts, but they will look to turn things around in the second half of the season.
