We still have space for teams on Wednesday and Thursday coed competitions, and we’ve added a recreational level division for Wednesday evenings to accommodate everyone who got shut out of Monday and Tuesday. The team application link closes Friday evening, so get hopping. We also have a women’s over 30 team looking for players, so check the Players Looking for Teams folder on the left and send us your information if you’re looking to get connected.
On the right is a fairly comprehensive story about our summer field situation and some plans beyond that for your interest.
The summer mandatory preseason meeting for team reps is Wednesday, May 22, at 7 pm at the Uptown Sheraton at Menaul and Louisiana. If your team is not represented, there is a $50 fine. There is NOT a makeup session and the other popular reason, that it’s always on some other day of the week, are not persuasive and do not get the fine waived, so make sure someone from your team is there.
On the right is our latest update to the ongoing developments in our Women’s Over-40 Division. If you’re not on a team and want to join, check it out. We’ve got three solid teams so far and need to get a fourth together. Tell your mom, your aunt, your blackjack dealer, your sushi chef, let no stone go unturned in making sure every woman who could be interested in not playing soccer against 25 year olds knows her ship has come in. As you may have seen, the news of this new competition has inspired Sir Alex Furgeson to retire from Manchester United and he was seen in town yesterday checking out houses in Tanoan in order to take a promotion to the be the commissioner of this new division, so don’t be caught on the outside looking in.
Monday and Tuesday coed soccer is full. If we have to have Monday or Tuesday, you’re on the waiting list. We’ll have the field update both for summer and beyond posted today. If the Wednesday competitive division does not go beyond 12 teams, we could add a rec division on Wednesdays to accommodate any overflow from Monday and Tuesday. We’ll contact 2012 rec coed teams that have not registered to guage their interest in adding a Wednesday division.
We’ve begun a list of players looking for summer teams in the Player’s Looking folder on the left.
Posted on the right is the entry form and poop sheet for the First Annual (and hopefully more to come) Santa Fe Classic Coed Soccer Tournament May 18 and 19. Check it out. And just to make it interesting to see who reads this, ASL will reimburse the first four ASL coed teams who sign up $100 of your entry fee. That means your team name and roster actually match an existing ASL spring or summer coed team.
The summer team registration link is open below this section.
If you’re looking to link up with a men’s, women’s or coed team for the summer, go to the folder titled Players Looking for Teams and read the info there for advice and what you need to provide us to get posted. Please bear in mind we’re pretty much finished for the spring season except for a handful of games so it will take the next month as we get the summer schedule organized and teams formed and registered.
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.
