Welcome to Albuquerque Soccer League

January 24

We're setting up the spring online payment.  If you paid for the fall season only, you can pay the $60 spring season fee online if your team rep has set you up for that.  We'll have the details posted next week.  We also need all team reps to return the player passcards for Fall only players so we can relabel them after the spring fee is paid.  The spring fee for new players, meaning players who did not play in the fall, is $75.

We've struck a deal with APS to use their soccer complex on the west side to do a four game winter season.  Details in the article on the right.

The Players Looking list is current.  Most people who came through it found teams. Right now we have teams looking both for men and women and we're one week into the season, so there's still time get a lot of footie in for the breezy fall season.  Go to the Players Looking folder on the left and send us the free agent form with your preferences, experience, and contact info and we'll get you set up.

If your team is looking for players, send us what you're looking for and exactly how many world cup titles each player should have won to make your roster and we'll get your posted.

 

Office hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. During the playing season we’re open on Thursdays 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.  We are not open on Friday, regardless of what "they" told you. The office is at 1820 San Pedro NE, Suite 6. You can bring gifts and the staff will be very grateful. Please don’t bring them firearms or distilled spirits as league management often meets with them later in the day when their stress level is increased.

What you need to register - Read me before you come to the office!!!!

1. Have your player record, including your picture, loaded into your team's roster.  If the staff has to do it, you pay an extra $10.

2. Complete your online waiver.  Go to the front page of the web site and click the link in the upper right corner that says "Click here to sign the e waiver for fall 2015."

3. If you played in the fall season, your team rep can set you up in the team folder to pay spring season online.

Yes, you can pay for and register someone else so long as their waiver has been submitted.  No waiver, no registration.

Very important point:  if you pay with the online system, someone, which could be you, still needs to come pick up your passcard at the office.  We don't deliver.  No passcard, no play.

WHAT IF IT RAINS?????

In the summer, the decision to play games is made at the field due to the wide spread in field locations.  Therefore, you need to go to your game so the referee can determine if the field is playable.  We do NOT use the rainout phone.

In the fall and spring, where we play at three locations, if it rains, we e-mail everyone, update the web site and post notice on the rainout phone at 341-5015.  The first update of the day will be posted at 7 a.m.  Please listen to the message, as it will tell you whether you need to call back during the day for updates.  The phone will handle 500 callers at a time, so you won’t get a busy signal.
