What Happens Next?

Information on what the process is once tryouts are completed.

9U-12U Academy

Once tryouts are completed, our academy directors will contact the parents of ALL the players who attended either by phone or by email to update them on their child's status with respect to our Academy Program (including 12U SCCL and 12U NPL). Given how many players we have attend our tryouts, this process can take up to 72 hours. If you have not heard from the relevant academy director by Monday at 8pm for tryouts completed by Friday evening of the previous week, please contact him or her by clicking HERE, since there is always the possibility that your contact information may have been listed incorrectly.


If your child is considered a good fit for the program, the academy director will ask you to confirm his or her place so our admin staff can send you an official acceptance for your child into our academy player pool through the same Blue Sombrero account you used to pre-register for tryouts. Please note that if you did not pre-register for tryouts and do not have a current member account on this SSA website (if you were a walk-up for example, or if you were registered previously on one of our Recreational programs and did not pre-register), we will need you to create a new account (clicking on 'Register' in the top right corner of the screen) through which we will complete your child's registration.


At this point, the process splits into two, one working with the coaching staff, the other working with the admin staff:

1. You will need to continue to communicate with the relevant academy director and/or coach/team manager to move the process along as it relates to your child being part of the age group pool. This includes signing up for your age group Shutterfly account (the main resource you will use week-to-week to access rosters, check schedules, camp dates etc), as well as communicating your child’s roster # preference to the coach/team manager if you are new to the program to allow you to go ahead and start the online uniform ordering process for uniforms. For more information on the uniform ordering process, please click on the main menu. In addition, you will need to complete a Medical Release Form (no need to notarize) and provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate to the academy director or his/her designate, both of which will be kept in the age group folder. Your academy director will be your primary resource for any questions on these matters.


2.  As of the advertised Official Signing Day, our administrators will begin sending out the acceptance emails to provide parents with access to the payment tool within our Blue Sombrero registration website to allow them to complete all the waivers and to determine the preferred payment method (check, full CC payment, or installments). For a step-by-step guide on creating an account and accepting a place for your child, please click HERE. Please note that if applicable, we will also need all Financial Aid application documentation completed and received into the office by June 20th. Please click HERE for a copy of the documentation. Our club administrators take care of this side of the process, so please contact our office if you need assistance in this respect. Once you have completed the registration process through Blue Sombrero, you child will officially be part of the SSA Academy Program!




13U-19U Select

Once tryouts are completed, individual team coaches will contact the parents of players who attended, either by phone or by email, to confirm a general offer of a place on the Select program (incorporating DA, NPL, SCCL, and GA Soccer state league teams) and to offer spots on a particular team. Given how many players we have attend our tryouts, this process can take up to 72 hours. If you have not heard from a coach by Monday at 8pm for tryouts completed by the Friday of the previous week, please contact our the relevant age-group coordinator (details below - click HERE for contact information), since there is always the possibility that your contact information may have been listed incorrectly.

Once a coach has offered a spot to a player, the parent of the player will be asked to make a firm commitment to the team so our admin staff can send an official acceptance email to the parent to accept the child into our Select program through the same Blue Sombrero account used to pre-register for tryouts. Please note that if you did not pre-register for tryouts and do not have a current member account on this SSA website (if you were a walk-up for example, or if you were registered previously on one of our Recreational programs and did not pre-register), we will need you to create a new account (clicking on 'Register' in the top right corner of the page) through which we will complete your child's registration.

1.  You will need to continue to communicate with the relevant coach and/or team manager to move the process along as it relates to your child being part of the team. This includes confirming email addresses to add into the team email group, as well as communicating your child’s roster # preference to the coach/team manager if you are new to the program to allow them to go ahead and start the team's online uniform ordering process. For more information on the uniform ordering process, please click on the main menu. In addition, you will need to complete a Medical Release Form (no need to notarize) and provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate to the coach or team manager, both of which will be kept in the team folder.
