Additional League Information

All coaches within APL & ASL are required to possess a minimum of an E or Grassroots coaching license by the start of the 2022-2023 league season.

Advanced Leagues Application Process

Teams may apply using the link at the top of the webpage (Deadline Posted Above).  Applying teams should have realistic expectations based on their prior season finish in League and Cups. The application requires detailed information to support the request to be reviewed by the LOC. All returning and new teams planning on playing in Advanced Leagues must complete the application process. *9 Player continuity rule for automatic qualifiers exists or they become an open applicant.

Advanced Leagues Placement Notification Process  

For the 2022-2023 Season: The League Commissioner will notify the teams that they have been Accepted or Declined for the league (APL, ASL1, ASL2) in GotSport.

Teams that are on the Waiting List in some age groups have not been placed in Advanced Leagues yet (APL, ASL1, or ASL2 at this time). A team will be notified if their status changes. Teams on the Waiting List should prepare to register for their regional open leagues such as Arizona Soccer Association's Open League, FBSL, or other Affiliate League upon notification if their status changes to "Declined". 

Teams that are identified for a play-in game will be notified after teams register. ASA will schedule the games in August before the regular season begins. This will take place before Opening Night or when League Play begins.

 Arizona Advanced Leagues Placements

League Commissioner and/or League Operations Committee reserve the right to adjust the division size if deemed necessary. Teams that applied for a division do not have to also apply for a lower division if they are not accepted. For example, a team that applies for APL does not need to complete an application for ASL as well. Teams that have not been accepted into APL after applying are automatically considered for ASL1 and ASL2.
