SCAA offers the Competitive Soccer program to boys and girls ages 12 - 19 that are ready to compete at the higher levels of competition, beyond a curriculum of the Youth Academy. Our Competitive Program exists to allow any player, irrespective of ability, the opportunity to take their game to the height of their potential. Players play with other players of like-ability with various levels of commitment throughout. Higher the level, greater the commitment. We believe in striving for excellence and as players progress, they are constantly put in new situations to provide a greater challenge if indeed that is what the player desires. For our top players their goals include playing on the ODP state teams, regional teams, national teams, college teams, professional teams, etc. For our club, we want to push our players to “the next level”. This “next level” may be different for every player. Much like Youth Academy, the training program is unmatched, the rigor is high caliber, but the reward is far grander. Interested players must participate in an evaluation process that occurs in May of each year. Once a player has accepted a position in the Competitive Program, they are committed to participate for their upcoming soccer season.
Compeitive players train two nights per week and are strongly encourage to participate in the supplemental technical training session offered by SCAA's Technical Director. Coaches specialize in developing supreme tactical awareness and technical ability as a team, placing a higher responsibility of individual growth on the player. Players typically play matches on weekends during the season against teams from other clubs in the the western half of NC and some SC. A balance of home and away matches are played. There is at least one tournament teams typically participate in addition to the SCAA Festival Event.
Much like our other Programs, we have a large need for volunteers. If you have the time and the ability to volunteer your time, we invite you to help us create the best possible experience for our players and families. New volunteers are always welcome!
