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.

Fall 2017 Registration
(FOR MANAGERS) there are a few steps that MANAGERS need to do:
- Have all players sign the Albany Waiver. Scroll down home page and download form 2 which is the full team Albany Waiver. All players wet sign and managers need to hand this to Steve Williams hands by Aug 20, 2017.
- After the season starts, if you need to, you can use the individual add/drop Albany waiver (form 3) for late adds to the team but they must have a CSAN pass to play (new Fall 2017 rule)
- Before the FALL season each team manager will fill out the CSAN Annual Team Form and send to Steve Williams (form 1) . This is due by Sat July 29th, 2017.
- Ensure that you follow the CSAN registration and passes as follows:
- Download (form 4) and have your players fill in the CSAN waiver, sign and email to you.
- If you go here http://cnadult.albany.affinitysoccer.com/ you can register your players with CSAN online
- Go to the registration part which is right hand window.
- For Managers that don't have the password you can create a new account.
- For players already in the system you will type their name, date of birth, gender all their info should appear, so just upload the CSAN Waiver they signed by using the file upload icon next to the photo upload icon.
- For new players you will have to enter in their info plus a photo plus the CSAN Waiver.
- 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 20 players on your roster.
See the Manager FAQ above for more info.
1) Players need to be registered to a team on the basoccer.org website. To do this Players must:
- Go to "User Login" (link is in the upper right hand conner)
- Then go to "Player Registration"
- Select the team you wish to join and check the season then click Submit.
- It will then be up to that team's manager to add you to their roster. Selecting a team does not guarantee placement. Communicate with the team manager in order to get added to their team
- If you are confused about player registration contact a league manager.
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 (1) 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 message regarding co-ed play:
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.
Female players must be 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.
