Welcome to Albuquerque Soccer League

January 29

We sent out our second electronic newsletter to all players who provided an e-mail address in their player record.  If you didn't receive it, let us know so we can add your email to your player record and to the mailing list.  We'll have them going out every week to land league information directly in your mailbox.

Players looking for teams has been updated January 29.  Teams are stiring and getting registered so if you're looking to join a team and fulfill your New Year's resolution, this is a good time to go to the Player's Loking folder on the left and send us the form.

We have an open spot for a team in men's first division for the spring season.  We've filled the spot in second division and have several teams who have contacted us for third division.  If you want to pick up this spots and aren't planning to raid an existing team for your players, contact us by e-mail or phone for details.

OK, time to start thinking about spring soccer with our balmy weather today.  We've added all the names we've received since the end of the fall season of men, women, and couples looking to join teams for the spring. Time to start stirring a little bit and nudge your roster to get off the couch and get back in their playing trim.

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.

 

 

Our Plans to Offer a Men's Over 30 Division in the Spring

Given that we have plenty of nights of open fields at the soccer complex in Bernalillo, we’re making another run at the possibility of offering a men’s over-30 weeknight competition under the lights.  Since we brought the additional lighted fields on line we’ve offered a Wednesday night coed league and have recently played a men’s over-48 or over-50 league on the same night.  In the spring, the Over-48 group migrates to play in Santa Fe, which makes field space available on Wednesday nights concurrent with the coed play.

Winter 2015 Referee Certification Clinics Are Set

Do you have a burning desire to make new friends, influence people, be the idol of hundreds (OK, dozens) every Sunday?  Have you spent hours on social media advising the world that you could have done those World Cup games better? Your ship has come in.  Here is the winter 2015 referee clinic schedule.

The New Mexico Soccer Referee Association is offering numerous introductory referee clinics in January and February.  In order to officiate adult soccer games, an aspiring referee must complete the requirements for a Grade 8 certification.  NMSRA is offering several relevant clinics. 

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.
