Introduction

The SASL are always planning ahead for the next season. Teams are welcome to apply for our Over-30 League, Over-40 League, Over-50 League and the Over-60 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 non-refundable $200 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. If your team is not accepted, $100 of your application fee will be returned to you.

Seasons begin mid-April, but the Annual General Meeting is in mid-February. 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.
Over-30 League

2019 will be the 40th year of the Over-30 league! We started with three teams in 1979.

In
2018 we had 20 Over-30 teams; 10 in the First Division and 10 in the Second Division.

We are ALWAYS looking for more teams to enter the Over-30 League upto a maximum of 30 teams in total.

The Over-30 League is a very competitive league. The more competitive clubs from theOver-30 League enter Over-30 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.

Outfield players must be at least 30-years old. Goalkeepers may be 25-years old.

* NEW * Over-60 League

2019 season is the 2nd year of the Over-60 League We started with four teams in 2018.

We are ALWAYS looking for more teams to enter the Over-60 League upto a maximum of 30 teams in total.

We expect Over-60 soccer to grow and become as popular as our Over-30, Over-40 and Over-50 Leagues have done since 1979. It is expected to start slowly in terms of competition at first, but become increasingly competitive as more players graduate from the Over-30s, Over-40s and Over-50s over time.

The United States Amateur Soccer Association (USASA), to which the SASL is affiliated through the Connecticut State Soccer Association (CSSA), has Over-60 divisions in it's annual Veteran's Cup, a very competitive tournament. At least one SASL club has been sending an Over-60 team to the tournaments each year since at least 2014!

Outfield players must be at least 60-years old. Goalkeepers may be 55-years old.
