The Sweatshop Southern Athletics League is the area track and field league for clubs in the SEAA region who wish to compete in joint (male & female) teams.
The league obtained a grant from UKA in 2011 and has been sponsored by Sweatshop since 2012. In 2016, they will be providing 250 tyvek numbers for every club in the league. Sadly, there will be no Men/Women-of-the-Division Awards in 2016.

- Promotion and Demotion in 2016:
At the end of the season the top two clubs in each Division 2 will be promoted to replace the bottom four clubs in Division 1. The bottom 4 clubs in Division 2 will be demoted, with the top 2 teams from each Division 3 automatically promoted. The final 2 promotion slots from Division 3 will be filled following a paper match (using SAL results only) between the third and fourth clubs in each Division 3.
