About the Senior Academy




Our Senior Academy is host to U15-U19 teams which compete in OYSA Premier or Division I Winter Leagues, in addition to summer tournaments and either Presidents or State Cup.

Senior Academy players have developed the habits, productive attitudes, and highest playing standards required to become a well-rounded athlete. Teams train 2-3 times per week and continue developing their technical, tactical, physical, and mental skills. Our goal is that our players develop to grow both as well-rounded athletes, as well as community members and leaders. Tryouts are held annually in May to identify and select the top local players in our community for each age group.

Senior Academy teams are comprised of 16-18 players and play 11v11 soccer. In these age groups, our coaches continue to develop elite technical skills and high level tactical understanding. In addition to the expectation to demonstrate high level skills and understanding, the Senior Academy player will learn to be the best player that they can be for their role and position in the team and be held to the highest leadership standards as representatives for Southside Soccer Club in our community and their respective high school programs.

Senior Academy players are released for the OSAA fall season after completing their summer club schedule and are encourage to tryout for their high school's program, as well as to consider both continuing their playing career beyond the youth levels and giving back to the game as a coach. Our staff is a resource to all current and former players!

Our staff represents a variety of both grassroots and high-level playing experience, having competed as players for local & elite youth programs, as well as collegiate, semi-pro, and professional teams throughout the United States and abroad. Many SSC coaches have earned USSF National Licenses, United Soccer Coaches Diplomas, and also coach for local high schools (NFHS Certificate) and elite state programs. This diverse combination of playing and coaching experience adds unique perspectives to the culture of our club.
