Cartersville Recreational Program

Welcome to SSA Cartersville Recreational Soccer -

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


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.  

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

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 Nike game jerseys (1 'home' and 1 'away' to avoid a clash with the opposing team), 1 pair of black shorts, and 1 pair of black socks. Uniforms are used on a continuous season-by-season basis, so returning players are not required to purchase a new uniform each season unless they choose to. U4 age group is not required to purchase uniform, since those players will be provided with an SSA t-shirt. Black shorts and black socks are preferred and can be purchased. For more information, please click here.
