Apply for Albuquerque SL Fall 2015/Spring 2016

Here’s the link for registration for the fall 2015 and spring 2016 soccer competition.  When you register your team, we are considering you to be committing to both the fall and spring season.

 If you already have a team in ASL in spring 2015, or you had a team in summer 2015, please 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 before, 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 2nd or 3rd Divisions, we will ask you for a roster of your players and playing experience by person before we accept your team in either of those divisions.  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.  The $50 application fee for the fall and spring competition will be applied to individual player fees if you actually complete the process of registering a team.  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.  That also means your team isn’t included in the schedule.  Therefore, we’d suggest getting that fee paid as soon as you submit your electronic application.

Before you do any of this, please go to the Fall 2015/Spring 2016 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.

Summer Referee Clinics Set

The NM State Referee Committee has set up 4 clinics between July 11 and the first weekend of the season for certifying as a Grade 8 referee, the USSF minimum grade level to officiate adult soccer games.  This entails 16 hour of instruction, a 100 question test, and a field session.

Welcome to Albuquerque Soccer League

June 27

Effective June 29 the men's open division fees are reduced from $65 for current ASL players to $35 and from $85 to $55 for new players.

If you please at North Domingo Baca, pick up your trash before you leave.  If there's trash when you get there, pick that up too.  Yes, we know that's unfair.  We've been contacted by the city and this is a good way to lose our permit to use those fields.  

We've contacted the city about the bent goal at Heritage and hopefully that will get fixed.......this year.

The Over-30 and coed fees are reduced as follows.  

  1. Over 30 fees go from $35 to $18 for existing players and $55 to $38 for new players
  2. Coed fees go from $35 to $ 18 for existing players, $40 to $23 for transfer players, and $55 to $38 for new players. 

The Players Looking list below is pretty static right now.  If your team is looking for players for the summer season, the front page article seemed to work pretty well for the spring season, so please send us your needs and contact info and we'll get it posted.  If you're a player looking, 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.

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 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.

We Have a New Process for Executing the Liability Waiver for Fall 2015

We’re making several changes to the ASL registration process to implement beginning with the Fall 2015 season.  The fiscal year for ASL, NMSSA, and USASA player registration is September 1.  Therefore, everyone submits new registration information and pays their annual fees related to insurance and membership in NMSSA, USASA, and USSF. 

Up to now, the liability waiver that is on the player passcard has sufficed for purposes of our liability insurance coverage that is obtained through our membership in USASA.  The insurance provider is now requiring a somewhat more extensive liability waiver that either won’t fit on a passcard like we use or can’t be read if you do.  Therefore, we’re going to a modified system to complete the liability waiver process.  This is somewhat good news in that we have set up a system for you to do this online, thus eliminating the need to actually sign the passcard.

We have contracted with Waiversign.com to provide a mechanism to complete the waiver online and it is directly submitted to ASL through gmail.  The information we get is the same information we get on your player record in Demosphere, which is your full name, address, phone, gender, email and date of birth.  We are required to provide your name and address annually to USASA and USSF.  We do not provide your email address, date of birth or email address.

We have some other plans underway to streamline both the registration and payment process, but right now players can begin completing waivers immediately through the Waiversign.com system through the link below.  We are not asking for the team name so people who play on multiple teams over the course of the year don’t need to resubmit the waivers. We’ll keep them filed by last name and can match them up that way.
