July 28 Game Cancelled Due to Rain

The 100% chance of rain by 7:00 and predictions of bad storms means, unfortunately, we are cancelled for the evening.

We are pleased to open registration for the spring/summer session of our league. Information can be found below.

    • 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.
  • The season's start may be delayed based on post-winter field conditions and/or scheduled town maintenance.

  • 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. Please see below for instructions on how to join the list.

2013 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. Registrations will be on a per session basis (no full year 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 25.
  • We are strictly limited to 20 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.

Basic Information

  • The league plays outdoors only for two distinct seasons: Spring/Summer (combined) and Fall. The league plays indoors during the winter.
  • All outdoor games are played at the Clifton Common. Indoor games are played at the Sportsplex of Halfmoon.
  • The league has separate divisions for men 30 years of age and older and women who are a minimum of 25 years of age.
  • During the outdoor season we are required to maintain a membership comprised overwhelmingly of Clifton Park residents. During the indoor season we are open to players from anywhere.
  • Registration is mandatory and includes a standard waiver of liability.
  • There are registration fees collected to cover the league's expenses, which consist mainly of field rentals. Obviously, the indoor season is considerably more expensive than the outdoor season.
  • Shin guards are mandatory for all players.
  • Goalie gloves are required for goalkeepers.

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.
