  • Teams are given the opportunity to request divisions and to play up.  All requests are subject to review by the ASL committee.

 

High School division to expect only enough teams for U16 and U18 age brackets, divisions based on teams applied.

Teams must register for the Region III Premier League, USYS National League or AR State League to qualify for the AR State Championships.  If a team registers and we are not able to provide a bracket, then the team can use another US Youth sanctioned league (approved by the ASSA State League Committee) to qualify for the AR State Championships.

Teams will only be able to seek outside leagues approved by ASSA in the event a division in an age group does not form. Teams must have registered for league. There are several factors that go in the decision of whether an age group will form in a bracket, including but not limited to geography, competition level, overall logistics, number of teams, etc.

Seeding:  The AR State League will be used for seeding of teams at the AR State Championships.  Teams that participate in the Regional or National Leagues will be awarded the first and second seeds regardless of any other standings.  If the two teams that participated in the Regional league are from the same district a coin flip will decide which team goes into which bracket. 

The top four teams (including the premier league teams) from each district league automatically qualify for the AR State Championships.  

If there are ten teams that qualify for the AR State Championships the Premier League teams receive a bye until the semi-finals.

Assume by Fall 2016:  Fields will be under US Soccer guidelines for 5v5, 7v7, 9v9

Fall 2016: Require all coaches in the league to have an E license in order to coach.

Fall 2017: Require all coaches in the league to have a D license in order to coach teams in the gold division.

For the good of the game in 5 years:

  • Four District/Region Leagues
  • Age true brackets with 6 teams/age group
  • Three Divisions or levels of competition
  • Two Premier League teams from Arkansas per age group
