Steele Creek Soccer Club visualizes a full scope of development in youth sports. Our programs emphasize the freedom to play, an open mindset, growth, development, and passion for the beautiful game.
Steele Creek has a well-defined organizational structure. We are trained on the latest research in youth development and soccer coaching methodology to be a successful club.
SCAA’s Recreational Soccer Program is open to boys and girls of all levels of ability. There are no player tryouts - everyone who registers is placed on a team. Many players who are interested in trying out for competitive teams begin their training by building a solid foundation in our recreational program. Our Recreational program includes our Junior Academy teams and pools, which are formed each season based on evaluations of players that show interest and aptitude for moving to our competitive program.
SCAA offers the Youth Academy program to boys and girls ages 7 - 12 that are ready to move from recreational soccer into a curriculum focused on development of skills and techniques. The program, as recommended by US Soccer and the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association, stresses player development over winning. SCAA strongly believes that the Youth Academy Program is the best development option for children leaving recreational level programs. The training program is unmatched for preparing the youth player for higher level competitive programs. Interested players must participate in an evaluation process that occurs in May of each year. Once a player has accepted a position in the Youth Academy, they are committed to participate for the entire upcoming soccer year (August to May).
SCAA forms teams at several levels of competitive (travel) soccer at each of our locations based on the results of formal tryouts held in the spring of each year. All players must attend tryouts every spring to be considered for a spot on a competitive team for the following year (August through May). Following tryouts, SCAA will present qualified players with an offer of a position on a competitive team based on their demonstrated level of ability. Players and families are made aware of the team's planned playing level, coach assignment and travel/tournament expectations prior to player commitment. Once the player accepts his position on the team, he is committed to SCAA and that team for the entire playing year (August - May).
