Apply for Albuquerque SL Summer 2015

Here’s the link for registration for the Summer 2015 soccer season.  If you already have a team in ASL in Spring 2015, or you had a team in Summer 2014, go to your Team Folder, log in and submit your application through that link and it will preserve your ability to populate your roster with the Team Player Pool function.  If you want to change your team name, submit the application through the old name and send us an e-mail.  We can then go in to the data base and change the team name and preserve your Team Player Pool function. 

If you’re a new team who has not played in the league since summer 2014, click the link below and it will step you through the team application process.   If you are a new team and are applying for Coed Monday or Tuesday play, we will ask you for a roster of your players and playing experience by person.  This apparently offends some people.  So be it.  It’s the process we use to weed sandbaggers out of those divisions.

There is a $50 application fee for all competitions except women’s over-40 and 5 a Side, which has a flat $200 fee per team.  The $50 application fee for the summer competition does NOT apply to individual player fees, a statement that is also repeated on the e-mail you will receive confirming your team application.  If you elect to pay your $50 application fee by check or cash at the office, please be aware that your application is not complete until we receive it.  As we get closer to all of our limited number of fields being committed, that means your team is not assured of having a space in the schedule.  Therefore, we’d suggest getting that fee paid as soon as you submit your electronic application.  If you do not field a team, the $50 fee is forfeit.

Before you do any of this, please go to the Summer 2015 Soccer folder and read the information there on what we offer and how to do both your team application and how to set up your roster and enter player records and pictures.

Welcome to Albuquerque Soccer League

March 23

Fees for Sunday play descrease efective registrations today.  Players who have registered since September 1 dcrease from $60 to $30.  New players decrease from $75 to $50.

Our practice of posting teams looking for playes on the front page has worked out well so we're going to try a different approach on players looking for teams as well.  We're setting up a center article where we'll list players for two days before we move them to the folder on the left side of the page.

We'll have summer team registration posted in another tean days or so.  We're working on some substantive changes to make the registration and payment process easier and want to get that tied up before we make the link open for summer team applications.  We'll been requested to add an over-30 coed division for the summer and will send out info to the appropriate parties on that item.

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.

 

 

March 20 Update to the Men's Over 30 Spring Division

Here’s our update as of March 20.  We’ll start play Wednesday, March 25, with four teams and possibly a fifth team joining.  We’re registering VfB Sandia and Rogues over 30 teams and a new team from Sporting Vision.  We have two more in process.  The team reps have directions on how we’ll go abut processing the registration to minimize administrative effort and players who are currently in the league can go into the team folders to pay the $65 registration fee.  We should have the schedule posted as soon as we get a team name for the fourth team.

If you wish to get on the free agent list, please let us know and we’ll add you to that pool. 

The following part hasn’t changed

So here’s the plan.  We’ll plan on  3 referee crew as opposed to the one referee the coed competition uses.  In order to entice referees to sign up, we’ll pay an extra $10 per assignment, since they don’t like coming out for a weeknight game when they can only get one game in.  As a result, the registration fee will be $65 per player.  A player who is not playing Sundays in ASL (last fall or this spring) will need to pay an additional $25 for the annual USSF registration and insurance fee.  Players need to be registered on the Over-30 team and have a passcard for this competition.  They cannot use their passcard from a Sunday team.

Players Looking for Teams Two Day Listing

Based on the success of putting the teams looking in the center section, we're going to start listing players for two days on this section before we move them to the Players Looking folder on the left.

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.
