Over-18 Division

We are really excited to announce that our Over-18 registrations have been going well and we are hoping to start playing by mid-June. If you are a player living in Clifton Park in your late teens or twenties (male or felmale) who is looking for a recreational playing experience for the outdoor season, please consider our league. Registration information can be found below in the 2015 Outdoor Season section.

June Monday Schedule

The Clifton Park Soccer Club will be holding youth program evaluations (formerly try-outs) on Mondays during the month of June, which will affect our play schedule. We'll be scheduling games under the lights on various nights so as to retain a one game per week schedule. Please pay attention to messages on our mailing for complete details regarding dates and times.

Registration Requirements

As announced previously, the league is now a formal offering of the Clifton Park Soccer Club. Consequently, we have stricter registration requirements than previously. Our insurance company requires us to have registration materials submitted to them one week prior to a player's participation in a game. Additionally, to prepare all the materials, we need a few days as well. As such, to participate in a Monday game, we need to receive your registration materials ten days in advance (in Friday's mail ten days before our Monday game). Thank you for observing this new requirement.

2015 Outdoor Season

We are pleased to open registration for the 2015 Outdoor Season. There are some important changes for this season, so please read the Information below carefully.

  • Registrations are now being accepted. Registration is mandatory in order by participate. Registrations and waiver forms must be received the Thursday prior to game night in order for a player to participate in a game. On-field registrations no longer allow the player to participate on the evening they join the league due to new insurance rules. Players opting to register on the field will have to wait until the following week to participate in a game.
  • This league is now a formal offering of the Clifton Park Soccer Club. As such, registration must be completed the week prior to player participation, as per above.
  • The purpose of the league is for recreational play. No referees are involved (everyone is on the "honor system" in terms of behavior), no standings are kept, and while the level of play is very good, we do not promote highly competitive behavior. If you are looking for a competitive league, there are better options available elsewhere.
  • We are now offering two divisions for play. There will be an Over-30 group open to men 30 and older and women 18 or older. There will also be an Over-18 group open to any players 18 or older who do not have the option of playing in the Club's youth program.
  • Play happens at the Clifton Common.
  • Games take place on Mondays, starting at 6:00 and ending when we're tired or it's dark.
    • Exception: Some Monday games in June may be scheduled for an alternative night (to be announced) due to youth team try-outs.
    • Exception: A second weekly evening game may be added in August.
    • Exception: There may be a couple of breaks in the schedule due to conflicts with town or soccer club events, which will be announced via the mailing list.
  • This season will begin on Monday, April 27 for the Over-30 division. The Over-18 division start date is to be announced depending on how many registrations are received from players no arriving home from college until mid-May.
  • We organize ourselves using a "pick-up" style of play. Each player should bring a white and a dark (no greys) shirt each week as we make teams at the start of play.
  • The fee per player is $25 for the entire outdoor season.
  • Registration Instructions and Form: Instructions for completing and submitting the registration can be found on our form, which can be downloaded here. The form is in PDF format.
  • IMPORTANT: The activity is primarily for residents of the Town of Clifton Park. Those non-residents who have played with us in either the previous outdoor or indoor season are "grandfathered" in and will be able to play. New players from outside of the Town may or may not be able to get in as we can only accept a limited number of players. Please contact the coordinator (address below) if you have any questions about this.
  • The league runs primarily through an Internet mailing list. If you do not join the list, you will not receive important league information. Please see below for instructions on how to join the list.

2014 Indoor Season

We are again going to run a small indoor league this year.

  • Registrations are now being accepted.
  • Play happens at the Sportsplex of Halfmoon.
  • There will be 2 sessions of 10 weeks a piece. Games wil be on Sunday nights. Session 1 will run from November 2, 2014 through January 4, 2015. Session 2 will run from January 11, 2015 through March 22, 2015. There will be no game on Super Bowl Sunday (February 1). Registrations will be on a per session basis (no full season option).
  • We organize ourselves using a "pick-up" style of play. Each player should bring a white and a dark (no greys) shirt each week as we make teams at the start of play.
  • The fee per player is $100 per 10 week session.
  • This season we are open to men over 30 and women over 22.
  • We are strictly limited to 22 players due to limited field availability. Very short-term preference will be given to players with a history in our league. Thereafter, players will be accepted in the order of receipt of payment and registration (e-mail does not count). Goalkeepers are given an advantage.
  • The Sportsplex has an annual $12 membership fee that is required of all players in our league. This is a separate charge and it is your responsibility to handle this registration, which is different than our league registration. Information on that can be found on the Sportsplex site. We should be on record with the Sportsplex as "Clifton Park Adult Soccer".
  • Registration Instructions and Form: Instructions for completing and submitting the registration can be found on our form, which can be downloaded here. The form is in PDF format.
  • The league runs primarily through an Internet mailing list. Please make sure you are subscribed to our list (we do not automatically add you to the list) to receive information. Please see below for instructions on how to join the list.

Play Guidelines

The play is very informal, in keeping with our charter as a recreational league dedicated to "friendly play for fun and fitness." While informal, we do tend to abide by the FIFA laws regarding play. The following items are, however, noteworthy.

  • We play without referees, so everyone is on the honor system and the players are expected to be self-policing. Consensus rules. In the absense of consensus, the league coordinator decides.
  • We don't keep a formal clock and only break when we feel like it.
  • We do our best to not injure ourselves and others. Slide tackles are expressly forbidden and contact with anything but the ball is strongly discouraged.
  • No official score is kept, no standings are kept.
