The League Registrar & Treasurer position vacated by John Heskes in October 1993 was split into two new positions; League Registrar and League Treasurer. Steve Henderson from the Connecticut State Soccer Association was voted in as the new Treasurer and Elliot Kravitt was voted in as the new Registrar at the Annual General Meeting in January at the Cromwell Radisson.

The original Wallingford club, now known as The Achilles, changed name again to Wallingford Morelia, but it was more than just a name change as the managers and players changed a lot too. The club evolved into a team of mostly Mexican and other Latin American players.

Ponte Landolfo, originally called Cheshire SC, drop out of the League after 12 years.

New Haven United became New Haven Cosmos.

Only two new teams joined the SASL this year; Mansfield SC and Yale International of Cheshire. The Yale team had drafted some of the former Cheshire SC players as things come full circle.

The League evolved into three distinct divisions now; First, Second and Third, with promotion and relegation between each.

League President Ken Brown acquired sponsorship from Umbro International for the League and enabled teams to get discounts on kits and balls.

The Over-30 State Cup, the Oneonta Over-30 tournament and the USSF Over-30 National Cup all continued to gain in popularity. Over-30 soccer was becoming huge all over the state now and the Connecticut State Soccer Association recognised the SASL as the fastest growing league in the state.

In the Spring in the 1993-94 USSF Over-30 National Cup Connecticut final Waterbury PSC 'A' defeated Glastonbury Celtic FC 3-2.

Six teams representing Connecticut interests travelled to Oneonta this year. One team was an all-star team of some of the best SASL players called Connecticut FC. It was largely based on Waterbury PSC 'A's team. Connecticut FC defeated Coliseum SC 1-0 in the final.

Waterbury PSC 'A' won the League and Cup "Double," only the second Over-30 to achieve this honour. With the National Cup, they could be said to have won the first "Treble." If you count their success as the basis of the Connecticut FC team in Oneonta you could even say they won the "Quadruple!"
