9U-12U Academy

Summer Assessments/Tryouts:

The governing body for soccer in GA mandates the dates of open summer assessments for all clubs (though additional assessments opportunities are available - see below). Players from any club in any state are free to attend these assessments as per state rules. 

Tryouts for the 9U-12U Academy program take place the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday following Memorial Day 

9U - 12U Academy coaches typically use the three evenings of assessments to evaluate players for acceptance into a 'pool' for training and playing purposes.

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).
