Center of Excellence

Program Summary

The SSA Center of Excellence (COE) main purpose is to identity talented youngsters currently in our Academy program and bring them into a bi-weekly practice environment with other like-minded players to help enhance their technical and tactical skill set.  For those players who are selected upon successful completion of the tryout process, practices will take place from February with friendly games to come culminating in a tournament at the end of May. 

How Do I Register My Son?
To be accepted into this program, your son will have to attend the Center of Excellence tryout day by registering below.

Who is this for?
This program is for advanced players looking to develop towards the higher end of the game with aspirations of being identified when of age for RPL, NPL or DA teams.  This program is only open to SSA Club Members

Does my child stop playing for his regular team?
Absolutely not! This will not interfere with your son's regular seasonal practices or games.  The COE program is another part of development puzzle that works alongside your son's current team schedule. 

Where and when do you practice?
Practices will be held on Friday evenings on a bi-weekly basis split between locations at SSA Smyrna and SSA Northside starting in February through to May.  Exact times and dates will be released to those successful in the tryout stage. 

What are the costs?
The only cost will be a one off tournament cost.

What if my son does not get selected?
Because your son was not selected the first time round does not mean they will not get further opportunities to succeed. Development at the younger ages can change drastically for various physical, social. psychological and technical reasons. 

We recommend your son learns from the experience, keep working hard both on and off the practice field, get feedback from your coaches and try again at the next provided opportunity.  There will be a tryouts each season for the Center of Excellence to ensure every young players is getting a chance.
