Tryouts - General Information

SSA hosts a series of open 8U-12U Academy assessments (to establish a player's suitability for acceptance into the Academy pool) and 13U-19U Select player tryouts to assign players to our 13U-19U (Boy's) MLS-Next, (Girl's) GAL, (Boy's) NAL, (Girl's) DPL, (Boy's and Girl's) NPL, and (Boy's and Girl's) SCCL program teams in late May and early June for the upcoming 2023/24 seasonal year. For details and information, please click on the links below.

In addition, some SSA locations may host 8U-12U Academy winter tryouts for Rec program players for acceptance onto a program for just the Spring season. For details on these mid-season tryouts, please click HERE.

Additional Tryout Options

If your child will not be available to attend May/June tryouts, but is interested in joining one of our Academy/MLS-Next/GAL/NPL/DPL/SCCL teams, please email the appropriate Program Director (Under 'Contacts' on the menu bar) for more information.

U4 - U19 Recreational

SSA does not require a tryout for players intent on joining our Recreational program. The initial sign-up period for the fall season is in June and July, while sign-up for the spring season is in December and January. Players not currently registered on a Recreational program at another club are free to register for our Recreational program at any time outside of these months, but acceptance is subject to space being available on a team roster within the requested age group. For more information, click on 'Programs' on the menu bar above and choose the location most convenient to you.

Financial Aid

The SSA Financial Aid Program for Academy and Select players is a program designed to make Select and Academy soccer more affordable for those families with limited means. The amount of assistance is limited each year, and the program awards are handled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The program is based on financial need only, and is not based on playing ability, while the amount awarded will not cover all of the fees due. 

Please note that financial aid does not cover uniforms, tournament fees, travel expenses, camps and optional training events.
