July 28, 2004:  My humble apologies to those who have asked (repeatedly) for final standings for the spring season...my computer holding the web files had a glitch and I was only able to recover them a few days ago.

Final results and standings for spring 2004 season uploaded.

We voted on July 16th to have our teams register with the Central Alabama Independent Soccer League (CAISL) for one year in lieu of registering with the Alabama Amateur Soccer Division.  We felt that the AASD, which is a member of Alabama Soccer Association (ASA) caters almost exclusively to youth soccer, has not promoted adult amateur soccer adequately, and that the fees we paid them were disproportionate to any benefit we received.

Accordingly, team reps will need to register with CAISL for the fall season on or before registration deadline of August 12, 2004.  Contact the league office for a registration package.  Fees will be a flat $595 for the fall and the same for spring 2005 season.  Compared to registering a 20 person team  with AASD (20 x $20 individual registration + $65 team registration), paying $650 league dues in the fall and another $650 next spring, we stand to save approximately $575 per team per year.

Our schedule for the fall season will be as follows:

          * August 2         Registration opens

          * August 12        Registration deadline

         * August 25        Scheduling begins for teams that have registered and paid

          * September 7   Schedules available

          * September 12   First game

          * November 14    Last game  (Nov 15-21 reserved for inclement weather days)

Bruce McClendon called me to tell me that Spider Martin's daughter Tracy is going to display some of her work as a tribute to her late father at the Bare Hands Art Gallery located at 725 29th Street South (tel 324-2124).  Here is the press release just received directly from the gallery:

Saturday, Nov 1 - Dia De Muertos Celebration (Day of the Dead) - Installation for Hombre Arana (Spider-Man) by Tracy Martinez (Tracy Martin). Ofrendas Welcome (Offerings Welcome).  This celebration will be held in the style of Day of the Dead in Mexico where family and friends come together on Nov 1 and 2 to remember lost loved ones.  Offerings are often brought in memory of the deceased such as their favorite food, beverage, flower, etc. and placed on altars in their honor.  Tracy Martin will convert Bare Hands' back courtyard into an altar for her father, Spider Martin. 7pm, free admission, BYOB.  We will have a craft table set up with all needed supplies to make paper flowers for the altar.  There will also be music and a Corona toast to Spider.  Hope you can join us for our first annual Dia de Muertos celebration!

New players added to your team have to be registered and obtain their player passes.  If a new player has never registered before, submit a completed player registration form with the player’s picture, fees and an updated roster.  If a new rosteree has been registered previously, you need only submit his or her player pass (or a photo with his or her ID number if known), full name, address, date of birth, phone number, fees and an updated roster.  Annual registration fees are $60 for the team plus $20 for each player.  Checks should be made payable to A.A.S.A., and mailed with team roster, registration forms for new players and player passes for returning players to AASA - 100 Walnut St - Trussville, AL 35173.  Tel 661-6333, fax 661-6373.  Allow 7-10 days for processing and return.

 

       FAQs   

 

No cards and / or no roster?   No play.  Don't even ask.  You may play a friendly against your scheduled opponent in lieu of the match, but the refs will not officiate (a few will officiate a friendly match following a forfeit but most won't).

 

 

Ties will stand during league play.

 

 

A player receiving a yellow card caution will not be required to leave the field, but may be substituted during the stoppage if deemed necessary or desirable by the team rep and / or the officials.

  

 

A red card ejection from a match will carry a one-week suspension, and additional suspension time will be added for more serious offenses if necessary.  The referee shall return the ejected player's card to the team representative after the match, and it will be the team representative's responsibility to ensure the suspension is carried out.  The disciplinary committee will review all yellow and red cards for determination of suitable punishment.  Disciplinary appeals may be made to the Chair of the disciplinary committee - the Honorable David Fleenor.  His email (preferred) is dfleenor@365-inc.com and his fax number is 323-2355.  All disciplinary appeals must be presented in writing to be considered.

 

 

A team representative who knowingly plays an illegal player (not rostered or suspended) will be viewed in the same negative light as the illegal player.  S/he will be subject to one week suspension for circumventing the rules, and the player, if playing while suspended, will be subject to an additional two weeks suspension.  Don't do it!

 

 

Effective fall 2001, team rosters will be limited to 22 players.  This is to encourage formation of new teams.

  

 

 

Double rostering of players is not allowed.  Temporary player passes are not allowed.  All players must be properly registered with A.A.S.A., must be listed on the teams' official roster, and must have a valid player pass.
