ACSL is a CSAN/USSF affiliated league. Our games feature 3-man referee crews (Center Ref + 2 ARs).
Albany Co-ed Soccer League (ACSL) exists for the purpose of providing a safe, fun co-ed soccer league with an understanding that the top division can be competitive. ACSL requires all players to sign a Conduct form prior to being registered in the league where they agree to act in a positive, friendly and sporting manner, showing respect for other players and referees. The League encompasses a wide age range and ability so as to promote inclusivity. Violent conduct such as fighting with other players or the ref (including threatening words or gestures) will not be tolerated and is subject to disciplinary committee review and possible banishment from the league.
New players!!! Please contact the team manager directly if you are interested in joining a team.
Teams looking for new players will often post a note on the "Teams Looking For Players" page.

Spring 2014 Registration
Fees ($1866 per team payable to City of Albany) should be given to Stephen Williams.
Your current player passes are good for the Spring season.
New player passes will come to Stephen Williams. Most CSAN fees are included in League fee. You do not have to pay CSAN anything unless you have more than 22 players on your roster.
1. Before the FALL season each team will fill out the CSAN Annual Team Form (New teams fill this out now) (form 1)
2. Each player signs the whole team CSAN waiver form (form 2)
3. Each player will fill out and sign the CSAN player registration form (form 3). If they had a pass last season you do not need a photo. Managers also need to sign this form. This website can print all your players' registration forms for you with everything filled in, so all you will need is the signatures. Ask Brian McCarthy if you need help with this.
4. Each player will sign the Full Team Albany Waiver (form 4)
If you need to, you can use the individual CSAN waiver (form 5) and add/drop Albany waiver (form 6)
Reminder for existing players that plan to switch teams:
Players on existing teams must follow these procedures to transfer from one team to another:
Prior to one month before the season starts, communication (email) including the affected player, BOTH teams’ managers, and a league president must be sent so the original team has time to prepare for losing a player.
Once the deadline for transfer without approval has passed, a player may only change teams with approval of the team they are intending to leave. Approval may be waived by the league if there are special circumstances which warrant allowing the transfer.
SHORTAGE OF FEMALE PLAYERS RULES
First rule is: No more than 6 men may be on the field at any time with the exception of up to 1 man over 50 years old taking the place of a woman.
The second rule is allowing female players over 18 whereas male players must be over 25.
With regard to the first rule, in no way is this to be interpreted as equating the ability of female players with a 50 yr old. That is not the intent of the rule. This rule is for expediency's sake.....meaning that it's very hard to find female players and this is a way to field teams and also include older players. Our immediate co-ed neighbor now fields 14 teams thereby narrowing the pool considerably.
