How are Teams formed? Team Captains are responsible for building their teams.
How do we sign up? Team Captains should send TASL their team name and then register the team in the Coed Eight division. Once TASL enters the team name, then you can get those players registered!
If I don't have a team can I still sign up as a player? YES! Captains are always looking for new players so register as a Free Agent and join the "Player Pool" to find a team.
WHY SMALL SIDED PLAY???
- If rounding up enough players for a whole field game is difficult, small sided soccer might be an excellent alternative.
- If the larger sized field is daunting, then small sided soccer game might be a better option.
- The small sided format gives the player an opportunity to touch the ball more, build more confidence, gain a comfort level with the game, get great exercise, contribute more to the game, have more playing time, develop relationships with the team and boost your endorphins!
- Small sided games are also typically shorter, so if you are on pressed for time, this might be better suited for you.
SPACE WILL BE LIMITED! We will only take a limited number of teams to get started. Join us for this Sign up early!
