Welcome to SSA Dekalb Recreational Soccer -

Providing youth soccer programs for local boys and girls

Southern Soccer Academy’s Recreational Program is a developmental soccer program that provides an opportunity for both boys and girls from under 4 (4U) through under 19 (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.  


Games will be played at Midway Park and/or Columbia Methodist Church.  Training will be at various locations in the Decatur/Avondale Estates area.

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 and Fees

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.  Fees start at $75 for the 4U program.
