Futsal

Futsal is a small-sided game that is played on a basketball court. Futsal provides more opportunities for players to improve because, compared to a one-hour indoor game, you get 3 times the number of touches on the ball.  Just like an indoor league, however, players compete in games, while, maximizing their monetary investment through guided instruction from high quality coaches.

Training Academy

SSA’s Training Academy is set up to provide a focused, committed and consistent training environment.

A high desire to improve will be a shared a characteristic amongst players in this group. Through attendance expectations a consistent group will challenge and push each other to progress and improve every week of training. Sessions will be organized and adapted to accommodate the accelerated progression players are expected to make.  Groups will be separated by boys and girls and each gender will have a younger group and an older group
