Additional information regarding Academy/Select Fees:

Payment Schedule:

Southern Soccer Academy (SSA) fees can be paid in full or in a series of installments. Payment(s) can be made by cash, credit card or by post-dated checks. Payment plan options will include up to five post-dated checks or credit card transactions beginning with an amount of $150 payable at registration to secure your child's placement on a team, followed by payments on August 1st, September 1st, October 1st and January 31st for U9 - U14 and up to four post-dated checks or credit card transactions beginning with an amount of $150 payable at registration to secure your child's placement on a team, followed by payments on August 1st, September 1st and October 1st for U15 and above.


In keeping with the majority of youth soccer organizations, our usual policy is no refunds of membership/registration fees paid, either in part or in whole, except in considering the situation where a player experiences a long-term injury. Given the unprecedented situation with Covid-19 though, this policy will be adjusted for the 2020/21 season year to allow for a prorated amount for weeks not completed to be returned to the member in the form of a refund should a ‘shutdown’ be mandated due to Covid-19.

Payment Default:

SSA is a not-for-profit membership organization and unpaid dues represent funds not available to meet annual Club expenses such as equipment repair and replacement, city-and-county field rental, governing body registration and insurance fees, referee fees, etc. Any player account that is delinquent by 7 days or more will be notified by the Club, and suspended from participating in any club/team activity. A late fee or a returned check fee of $25 will also be added to the installments. If you are having significant challenges with staying up-to-date with registration fees, please contact our administration staff. In limited instances, adjustments to your payment schedule may be possible, though cannot be guaranteed.

Academy/Select Release Policy:

If a player quits or wishes to be released from the Club, no refunds of fees paid will be issued. 

Financial Aid:

SSA has developed a program that provides financial aid to qualifying youth athletes in order to play soccer. This program maintains confidentiality while assisting players with registration fees and some coaching fees. It does not cover the cost of uniforms, travel expenses and tournament fees. Request for financial aid will be based on a first-come, first-served basis and available funds are limited each year. Families receiving financial aid may be required to volunteer additional hours to SSA. Financial Aid applications can be downloaded by clicking HERE, or requested from the club office by emailing [email protected] . Forms should be submitted to Sharon Gaughan ([email protected]) or mailed to the club office (40 Whitlock Place, Suite 200, Marietta, GA 30064) ASAP after tryouts are completed (or by June 20th at the latest) and roster spots are offered by coaches. Financial Aid decisions are typically made over the July 4th holiday, with player accounts being adjusted shortly afterwards if applicable.

The amount of financial aid offered will not cover 100% of club fees and will not reduce fees to an amount below the regular fees charged for the equivalent Rec program age group, but is designed to make the program as affordable as possible given individual family circumstances. Factors such as family income (determined by documentation such as tax return information), family assets, including vehicles and property, and the number of years a family has been requesting financial aid will be factored into the process of calculating the amount of financial aid to be provided.  

Other Information:

Club policy is to allow coaches to train more than one of the club's teams. Therefore it is possible that team coaches will occasionally be unable to attend certain games. Every effort will be made by the Club to arrange for a suitable alternative staff member to coach the team on game day.

Games and practices are subject to the effects of weather and other factors outside of the control of the club and cannot be guaranteeed.

Tournament expenses (both coaching expenses and registration fees) will be shared among all the players, even if a player is unavailable for a particular tournament.
