    Academy coaches typically use the three evenings of assessments to evaluate players for acceptance into a 'pool' for training and playing purposes.

    Additional Assessments/Tryouts:

    1. Individual Try-Outs

    Individual try-outs are available throughout the year for players not registered at any other club in GA or during the winter break for players who participated in Recreational program soccer during the fall season and are either resigning to SSA for the spring or have not yet registered at any other soccer club. Please note that unlike Academy program try-outs, where players are accepted into a general pool, Select program try-outs are subject to space being available on a team. To schedule an individual try-out, please contact the program director (listed under 'Contacts' on the menu bar).

    2. Winter Group Try-Outs
