ASL Spring Jamboree Series
** NEW for Spring 2013! **
The Arkansas State League serves Classic and Travel-level boys and girls teams from across Arkansas. During the Fall season, U11-U19 teams are organized into "Gold" and "Silver" brackets and play a series of 6-8 games using a "home or away" format. During the Spring, teams will be scheduled to play a total of 6 games spread out across 3 different "Jamboree" days (playing 2 games/day on their designated dates of competition). Schedules will be prepared to provide the best-available pairings of games for each team without limitations imposed by traditional age-pure divisions or Gold/Silver bracketing. To avoid games that would likely lead to lopsided results, teams will generally not be scheduled to play against all teams in their own age group, and may play some teams of equal ability twice during the season.
The Spring season will be offered for teams in the U9-U14 age groups (older players traditionally compete for their high school teams during this time). Teams in the U9-U10 ages will play 6v6, U11-U12 will play 8v8, and U13-U14 will play 11v11.
Spring 2013 Rules and Information

Games will be played at designated sites across the state, which will be named after registration closes. These sites will be selected with the goal of minimizing travel time for teams over the course of the season, but all teams should expect some travel during the season.
