MISSION STATEMENT


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.

Spring 2015 Registration

Managers, print your AP for new players from this site: http://bit.ly/1qBHXKA

So Andrew Brown will be continuing in his role as assistant registrar this season. Andrew wanted to remind you all about our registration procedures.  It's spring, so roster updates are incremental and you don't need to gather everyone's signature again.

Here are the procedures:

1) You send your CSAN Player Forms (or Transfer Forms) and Team or Individual Waivers to CSAN.

2) You send a scan of your Albany Co-ed Soccer League Add/Drop form to Andrew with any adds and drops, so that he can keep track of the players in the league.

3) Andrew receives the passes from CSAN and once he has received a scanned Add/Drop form with a player's name and signature on it, he will put the corresponding pass in the box at 2413 Russell Street in Berkeley.

4) If a pass has not arrived yet, but he has your paperwork, he will add your player to the weekly league-wide Authorization to Play (AP) form that you can print out and give to the referee.  Please don't make him put your player's name(s) on this list more than twice or we will threaten to charge you $10 per player (and we will really mean it).

5) The deadline for getting a player on the AP form is Thursday midnight before a Friday game and Friday midnight before a Sunday game.  This deadline exists so that he can send out the names of the players on the AP form on Saturday and you can review them because every once in a while his secretary misses a name.  You can make it easy on him by always sending your scanned Albany Roster forms as a new email with a meaningful subject line.  Replying to an old thread is a really good way to make sure he misses your AP request.


Forms
:

CSAN Annual Team Form (New teams fill this out now) (form 1)

Team CSAN waiver form (form 2) 
CSAN player registration form (form 3).
Full Team Albany Waiver (form 4)
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.

League Rules

 

For Referees:

AP List for new players without passes: http://bit.ly/1qBHXKA

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.
