The Alabama College Bowl League, or ACBL, is the organization made up of participating community colleges in the state of Alabama in charge of running and sponsoring community college tournaments throughout the competition year. At the end of the year the ACBL normally holds a state championship.

The ACBL has no official board but is instead ran by the number of coaches who are active in the circuit, since the teams who are active varies from year to year. However, Bevill-Jasper coaches Glenn Bobo and Jim Sanford, Central Alabama coach Adam Pinson, Coastal Alabama - South coach Jim Sims, Wallace State's Christine O'Leary, and Sharon Watson of Northwest-Shoals make up the recurring core of the league.

During the summer off-season, the league hosts the "ACBL Reunion" open tournament at Bevill-Jasper. This tournament was started as a way for all former ACBL players to get together but in recent years it has been expanded to included open/masters players from all over the southeastern United States.
