Summary

This Spring has landed the soccer world in an unprecedented situation due to the pandemic. The safety of our players remains our top priority. While every player, coach and club is ready to be back on the fields, the reality is that we must continue to adhere to the guidelines of our local government and health officials. As such, for the time being, there are severe restrictions on how players can come and train at the fields. Due to these limitations, tryouts would not be an effective process to assess players and place them on teams. In collaboration Ambush, AFU, Concorde, Georgia Express, GSA, LSA, NTH, Steamers FC, SSA, TYSA and UFA, have all made the difficult decision to cancel in-person, formal tryouts.  

While tryouts may not be taking place in the traditional manner, teams will still be formed at this time for the 2020-21 Soccer Year.


Whether you are a current SSA player, or a new player looking to join an SSA Academy/Select team for 2020/21, please read the information below regarding the registration process.

FAQs

Has the Spring season for U9-14 been written off?

No, we are still hopeful to return to the fields sometime in June to resume soccer activities.



Will my player be able to make a higher level team?

Yes, all players will be assessed for placement within their age group for U9-12 when we return to the fields in the summer months. For u13 and up, assessments will be available based on their current coach’s recommendation.


If I register early am I guaranteed a roster spot?

Yes, all returning players will be placed. We cannot guarantee the level they will be placed at but if you register now we will place you on a team for the Fall season.

While there is no penalty, a team may fill up. In addition, it may impact the delivery time of your uniform.

Yes. Please register for tryouts per instructions above.



Once again, thank you for your continued support and patience. This was not an easy decision to make, but the safety of our players will always be our top priority.
