PAASL

Palo Alto Adult Soccer League



SESSION INFORMATION: Evening Session #55 for A, B will start Tuesday, August 27 and end Thursday, December 19 for a total of 17 weeks.

FEES: The registration fees are $170 for Palo Alto residents, $180 for non-residents.
Evening Session fees were last changed Evening Session 40 in July, 2015.

Priority Registration: At this time Priority registration is only open to Palo Alto residents. To qualify as a Palo Alto resident a Palo Alto Utility account number is needed during registration. The City of Palo Alto is using city records to audit 100% of the player addresses supplied by field users for compliance. Registrations with invalid Palo Alto addresses and utility account numbers will not be processed. Any NON-Palo Alto resident registering before Tuesday, July 23, when regular registration opens, will see his registration canceled. Fees will be refunded and cancellation fees may be charged!

Regular registration: Registration for all players for Evening Session #55 will begin Tuesday, July 23 at noon and will close when all player slots have been filled.

Late registration: Late registration will begin Saturday, July 27 at noon and is not guaranteed to happen if all player slots have been filled. All late registrants will incur an additional $30 late fee. Most late registrants will be placed on a team but this is not guaranteed. You may instead be placed on the waiting list and will be added to a team as needed. The earlier that you register, the better chance you have of being placed on a team. Any player not placed onto a team will have their fees, including any incurred late fees, refunded. If still open, late registration will close on Tuesday, July 30 at noon. Please register early!

Player Photos: Player photos for both digital and physical player passes are now required prior to registration. Please make sure to upload a headshot like photograph of yourself into your profile (MyPage). This is a one time requirement for any division of PAASL you may plan in.

Registration Rules: PAASL registration is entirely through Paypal. You will receive an automated e-mail confirmation after you register; if you do not receive confirmation within a day or two, you must contact us to verify your registration. PAASL will not store any financial information on its servers, except for the amount paid to PAASL. There are separate registrations for each division.
You may only register and play in one of the evening divisions. Any men's player who registers for both A and B divisions will be deleted from both divisions. There is no cross-ringing, except for goalies. Any player who is locked out of their preferred division and signs up for the other division thinking they will ring in their preferred division will be refused playing time.

Group Signup Rules: PAASL's Evening Division is allowing groups of up to *FOUR* players to register to play together. PAASL reserves the right to break groups to better balance teams. Your group will be notified should this occur. If more players register as part of your group, the group will be split arbitrarily. You will need to organize your group prior to registration. Decide on a unique code for your group, for example, Barca60, MUC2006, PA Rapids. Each player in your group must enter this Group Code in the online registration form. Please organize your groups prior to registering - your volunteer registrars will not accommodate change requests and will not be calling group members of oversized groups to sort out who really wants to play with whom.

Player Passes: PAASL maintains a "No Pass, No Play" policy - you are required to present your player pass to the referee at game time check-in to be eligible to play. PAASL player passes are now digital. They are accessible through MyPage, which requires you to login through the PAASL website on any browser with your mobile phone. These passes are automatically generated when you register for playing sessions. For players who do not wish to carry their phones, referees will also accept a print out of your digital player pass for game check-in. For those who wish to carry a player pass print out, the player pass displays your currently valid registration which means you will need to print out your player pass at the start of every new session.

Because PAASL will no longer create unique session stickers to verify valid registration at game time, any player caught with a fake player pass will automatically incur a Violation per our Player Conduct Policy.  This will result in a minimum four month suspension. Repeat offenders will incur additional sanctions.

Uniforms: All players (except goalies) must wear official PAASL shirts. These cost $25 and are available for purchase at the time of registration. Shin guards are required and must be covered by soccer socks. Shorts may be of any color.

PAASL does NOT carry medical insurance. You are responsible for your own medical insurance.
