Academy Select

Hello Soccer Families,

As we approach the spring SOSL 2018 season,  Athens Soccer Academy will be slightly shifting focus toward creating limited roster teams for the under 12 age group and trying to create girls teams in whatever age group interest allows. The purpose of this shift is to increase playing time per player, while also readying teams for tournament play.

The spring teams will play in the 2018 SOSL regular season as well as the Marietta tournament on May 19-20. Trainings will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings behind Athens Community Center.

Roster size for the Under 12 Team will not exceed 12 players with a possible additional player spot for the Marietta Tournament.

Season cost will again be $250, not including the Marietta Tournament fee.

If there are enough players to enter two teams into league play at either age group then we may; however only the first teams in either age bracket will compete at Marietta.
In order to determine teams, we will be having tryouts for the Under 10 team on March 2 and for the Under 12 team on March 9. Tryouts will be at 5:30-6:45pm inside the gym at Beacon School.

Please understand that if your child is selected for a team, he or she must be able to attend the majority of practices and games in addition to the tournament in Marietta.
Please register for the tryout by filling out the Athens Soccer Academy player registration form and paying the $10 non-refundable tryout fee by using the paypal button below.  Your payment registers you for the tryout and you can turn in your form at the tryout.
