SSA Kennesaw offers programs for boys and girls ages 3 - 19

Welcome to SSA Kennesaw Recreational Soccer - Providing Soccer Programs to Local Boys and Girls Since 1987.

Southern Soccer Academy’s Recreational Program is a developmental soccer program that provides an opportunity for both boys and girls from 4 and under (4U) through 19 and under (19U) years old to play soccer, regardless of ability and experience – there are no tryouts. Although healthy competition is a natural part of any sport, the primary focus of this program is on player development. Southern Soccer Academy provides players of all ages a fun, purposeful, and challenging environment for each player to have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.


Through our partnerships with the City of Kennesaw Parks and Rec Department and the Cobb County Parks and Rec Department, SSA Kennesaw provides soccer programs for children in the Acworth, Kennesaw and Marietta areas at the following locations:

Big Shanty Fields  
2050 Kennesaw Due West Rd NW  Kennesaw, GA

Player Development

Fun with a purpose is a simple way to look at SSA recreational soccer. If it's not "fun," players will not want to play, but it has to be purposeful in order to develop players to their fullest potential. At Southern Soccer Academy, players are immersed in an environment that promotes their development of three key areas:

1) Soccer-specific skills - development of physical, technical, psychological, and tactical components of soccer
2) Life Skills and Core Values – learn to interact with other children and peers, solve problems, make decisions, demonstrate respect, responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship, and leadership

3) Health and Fitness – be active in a safe and fun soccer environment

The fall season begins in late August and ends early November, and the spring season begins late February and ends early May.  


Registration for fall season opens late May/early June and registration for spring season opens late November/early December. Registration is available to anyone aged 3 to 18 who is interested in playing the game of soccer.  For a list of fees, please click on 'Programs', then the age group you are interested in.


SSA are pleased to offer Recreational Soccer players a uniform. Members are required to purchase uniform for  5U to 19U recreational soccer programs, and are strongly encouraged to do so as soon as he/she has registered. Each uniform package consists of 2  game jerseys (1 'home' and 1 'away' to avoid a clash with the opposing team), 1 pair of black shorts, and 1 pair of black socks. 4U age group is not required to purchase uniform, and players will be provided with an SSA t-shirt.
