Welcome to SSA Cartersville Soccer -

Providing youth soccer programs for Bartow County boys and girls since 1997!


Southern Soccer Academy is a 501-(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing soccer participation opportunities for 3-19 years-old boys and girls of all ability levels and backgrounds through participation in local and regional leagues, and for adults in co-ed recreational leagues and pre-professional USL men's and women's U23 programs.

The club in its current form came about as the 2012 merger of a number of pre-existing soccer clubs in the metro Atlanta area. The club's membership now exceeds 8,000 players on 600+ teams making it one of the largest soccer clubs in the Southeastern US.

The club combines local, low-cost, parent and volunteer-coached youth programs that emphasize participation and enjoyment of the sport through a no-try-out/no-cut policy with elite-level, professional-staff-coached programs dedicated to providing our young players with the opportunity to participate in the highest levels of competitive youth soccer in the state of Georgia and beyond.

Recreational Uniform
SSA Members are required to purchase uniform for 5U to 19U recreational soccer programs, and are strongly encouraged to do so as soon as their child has been registered. Each uniform package consists of 2 game jerseys (1 'home' and 1 'away' to avoid a clash with the opposing team), 1 pair of shorts, and 1 pair of socks. U4 age group is not required to purchase uniform, since those players will be provided with an SSA t-shirt. For more information, please click here.

Elite/Travel Program Uniform
Please contact your coach directly.
