Introduction The SASL are always planning ahead for the next season. Teams are welcome to apply for our Over30 League, Masters League (Over40), Over50 "Legends League" and the Over60 League. Any NEW TEAM applying to join the SASL, or any CURRENT SASL TEAM applying to move up to the next age level league, should fill in a NEW TEAM APPLICATION FORM and submit it with a nonrefundable $100 application fee (used towards your total fees) NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 15th for review and subject for acceptance by vote by all current member teams at the SASL Annual General Meeting in February. Seasons begin midApril, but the Annual General Meeting is in midFebruary. Applications should be submitted to the SASL League Secretary by email or U.S. Mail. For questions regarding fees for a complete season  League fees, State affiliation fees, insurance, player registration, referee and assistant referee fees  please send email to either the SASL President and/or the SASL League Secretary for more information. The SASL's goal is to fill up divisions in each league to a maximum of 10 teams and have no more than three divisions per league. So, obviously, if a league is near it's maximum of 30 teams, it will be a matter of first come first served. The SASL Executive Board will review all applications and we reserve the right to reject any application. Applications deemed acceptable by the SASL Executive Board will be put up for election by all member clubs at the SASL Annual General Meeting prior to the next season. All new teams voted into the SASL will be placed into the lowest division in the league they have applied to join. It is the policy of the SASL to challenge those clubs to prove themselves if they thought they may be too good for the lower divisions. All of our League Champions and all of our best teams started out this way when they joined the league.

It is expected to start slowly in terms of competition at first, but become increasingly competitive as more players graduate from the Over30s and Over40s over time. The Over50 League is becoming a very competitive league. The more competitive clubs from the Over50 League enter Over50 tournaments nationally (the United States Amateur Soccer Association's Veterans Tournament) and formerly in the prestigous tournament hosted by the National Soccer Hall of Fame in Oneonta, New York, which is now unfortunately closed.

We are ALWAYS looking for more teams to enter the Over60 League upto a maximum of 30 teams in total. We expect Over60 soccer to grow and become as popular as Over30 soccer did in the 1980s and 1990s and as Over40 soccer did in the late 1990s and 2000s. It is expected to start slowly in terms of competition at first, but become increasingly competitive as more players graduate from the Over30s, Over40s and Over50s over time. The United States Amateur Soccer Association (USASA), to which the SASL is affiliated through the Connecticut State Soccer Association (CSSA), has Over60 divisions in it's annual Veteran's Cup, a very competitive tournament.
