The GA is the only national youth soccer platform that represents the collective vision of member clubs and actively engages the voice of the players to take real ownership in the GA.

SSA was announced as a member of the GA in February 2021, and will enter competition as of the Fall 2021 season both in the top tier GA League, and in the second tier Development Player League (DPL).

The Southeastern Clubs Champions League is a league comprising mostly of teams in the metro Atlanta area. The league, of which SSA is a founding member, was formed in 2018 by clubs searching for a better way to offer youth soccer programming for the serious soccer player.  Each age group and gender offers multiple divisions of play and incorporates a promotion/relegation system at the 13U and older ages. 
 Ages 9U - 12U

The SSA Academy Program is for players looking for a high-quality training and playing environment under the supervision of experienced and qualified staff where an enthusiasm for, and a commitment to, the game is nurtured and rewarded. Players typically go through a 'tryout' assessment in late May for the entire year or in Dec or Jan for just the Spring season, though players may join at other times of the year if space is available. The program is generally regarded as the starting point for players interested in moving into our NPL & SCCL teams and playing HS and College soccer in the future. At the 12U age group, players are eligible to tryout for a clubwide 'Elite' team which participates in a 12U version of the SCCL League. 
 Ages 6U - 8U

The SSA Player Development Academy is a soccer development program for 6U and 8U boys and girls running separate to our Recreational program, which aims to accelerate the technical and tactical development of players preparing to participate in the 9U-12U Academy program. Players are selected through an assessment process in January for the February-to-May Spring season and July for the August-to-November Fall season. 
 Ages 4U - 19U

The SSA Recreational Program is for players new to the game and for parents of experienced players looking for a fun, purposeful, and low-cost program in the fall and/or spring. The club has a no try-out/no cut policy and players of all ability levels are encouraged to participate. Registration for the Spring season (March through May games) starts in mid-November and ends late January. Registration for the Fall season (September through November games) starts mid-May and ends late July. Rosters are created in such a way whereby each player should play a minimum of 50% of each game.
