The American CueSports Alliance (abbreviated ACS) is a non-profit league-sanctioning body for cue sports in the United States. They produce national billiards tournaments on an annual basis, in areas such as eight-ball and nine-ball.

The ACS's stated mission is "to heighten the interest and awareness of cue sports through the support and sanctioning of organized competition throughout the United States and North America." The ACS is headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Cecil Messer is the current president (as of 2007).

Although originally started with the best of itentions....the ACS has lost participating leagues in each year to the vastly superior BCAPL
