OVER-30, OVER-40 and OVER-48 LEAGUES -- Players looking for SASL teams to play on

First, check to see if any there any SASL teams currently advertising for new players.

Players interested in the SASL Ocer-30s League, the SASL Masters League (Over-40s) and SASL Legends League (Over-48s) looking for a team should download the
SASL Team Managers Contact Info, a Microsoft Word document with addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of all managers and their assistants of teams in the SASL.

A word on the level of competition in the SASL can be found in the
Overview and Brief History of the SASL. To see how a team currently stands see the current season's League Standings. To see a club's history see a complete list of all teams in the History of the SASL: Team Names A thru M and Team Names N through Z.

FYI -- The SASL is not a men only league, but it is very rare to find women players in the SASL these days. The last time was probably in the late 1980s, early 1990s. Teams may accept a woman player if she is experienced, skillful and physically capable of playing competitive soccer with men. In fact, many of the SASL teams have midweek practices that may have one or more women players playing with them! Contact the team of your choice for more information.

Would you like me to advertise for you on the "CT Soccer eNews" email list (on average 550 recipients, including all managers of every team)? I can put you on the list too (only I post, just informational stuff), if you want. For more information see
"CT Soccer eNews" Email List.
