USTA has assistance on program for helping new captains on their website.
Best way to be involved and play is to sign up a team yourself and BE A CAPTAIN. San Carlos has 23-30 teams a year. Many players lose out on playing as they try to find a team and most are filled early being a new Captain. Don't be afraid to sign up a team, as in the last 5 years every team has been filled and now with close 400 members in the club, we need even more teams. 

USTA NorCal League Tennis

Is the country's largest recreational tennis league, providing organized, structured team matches for more than 30,000 men and women of all ability levels. In Northern California, tennis is an integral part of life and our teams can be found on courts in the Bay Area and Sacramento, Santa Clara to Marin to Mendocino Counties, as far north as Redding and as far south as Fresno. Teams are set up according to NTRP rating, so you're always sure that you'll be facing off against someone of comparable ability. That keeps the competition lively and the atmosphere social. And as part of a team, you've got a built-in support entourage that few pros can match.

Whether you're a beginner or you're in a league of your own, we've got a team for players like you. Age is based on the year of the league example 40 league you could join at 39 but must turn 40 during the Team year of play
