Fall Season Need-to-Know Info

All the coaches and staff here at Southern Soccer Academy are looking forward to the new Fall 2017 season!

Now that registration is in the waitlist phase, the process is as follows:

1. Our administrators are now working on assigning over 6,000 players to almost 700 teams, looking to insure that players are evenly spread across all the teams to provide a reasonable depth of squad for practice and games. As they go through that process, they will be taking late-registered players from the wait list and adding them into teams where space exists.

2. At the same time, our administrators will be matching coaches to teams, looking to recruit parent/volunteer coaches for teams that have not yet had a parent volunteer to coach the team.

Please note that rosters will be shared with coaches the week before practice is scheduled to begin, at which point coaches will then start the process of contacting players about practice times and fields etc. For the majority of our locations, practices for the U5 and older age groups are scheduled to start the week of August 28th, so please expect to hear from a coach at some point during the week of August 21st. Activities for our U4 age groups though usually don’t begin until the week after Labor Day.

3. Assigning teams to practice time slots and fields.

4. Scheduling regular-season games, looking to have the schedules released to SSA membership by August 28th for the majority of the age groups. If you are part of a U16 or older team, please be aware that the state soccer association creates the schedule and in year’s past, the schedule has not been released until Labor Day weekend.

5. Produce and distribute player passes for teams when needed (varies by location and age group).

If you have any questions about the process, please feel free to contact your location Rec Director or administrator.
