Fall 2022 Over-40 Recreational Program

Registration Details

Current Season Fall 2022
Fee $66.00
Independant Player Code by invitation

The SOCA Fall 2022 Over 40 RECREATIONAL PROGRAM is open to men and women over the age of 40. All players in the Program must be born prior to the date of September 1, 1982. No exceptions. Players born after September 1, 1982 are not eligible to play in the Program this season. Play in this league is suited for older players who no longer wish to play competitively but still enjoy playing with like-minded peers in a friendly “pick-up game” atmosphere. Guest players from other adult Leagues are NOT permitted. If you are over 40 and still wish to play competitively, please look for a different program.

All players must register through their own MYSOCA Account by selecting “PLAY FOR AN ADULT TEAM” and then entering the code for this program. The Code will not be published publicly as participation is by invitation only. While we do not wish to have a formal registration deadline, we would ask that anyone hoping to participate on 09/11/22 register no later than Thursday, 09/08/22, so that the Managers will have time to plan the format.

The season begins on September 11 and will end in late Novemeber. Games will be Sunday afternoons in the SOCA Field House. The PER PLAYER cost for the Fall 2022 OVER 40 RECREATIONAL PROGRAM season is $66.00.

SOCA has designated Lecky Stone (SOCA Adult Program Coordinator) and three “Managers” to take responsibility for inviting players, dividing the players into teams and managing the program. The Managers are:
Sean Horgan - 8020engineering@gmail.com
Paul Zmick - pzmick@gmail.com
Art Weltman - alw2v@virginia.edu
The game format (8v8, 7v7, 6v6 or 5v5) will be decided by the Managers each week depending on how many players are present. There will be no referee. By registering online, all players will have an active Adult Player Contract on file and be eligible to play. Participants in this Program may serve as Guest Players in other leagues for no additional cost.
Players should contact Lecky Stone at lecky.stone@SOCAspot.org or at (434) 962-0115 with any questions or to request the team code to register.
