Academy Team Information

The Stillwater Soccer Club (www.stillwatersoccerclub.com) will be holding our Junior Academy (U10/U8) & Recreational (U10/U8) evaluations for boys and girls on Monday, August 26th and Tuesday, August 27 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at Babcock Park.  All players who have signed up for Recreational (U10/U8) soccer for Fall 2013 are encouraged to attend both nights so coaches can accurately assess each players skill level before we assign recreational teams and before we send out invitations to the Junior Academy teams.  More information about Junior Academy below.
 
Final SSC Recreational sign-up date:
The last day to sign up for a recreational team will be Saturday, August 24th from 10am to noon at the Stillwater High School south entrance. We have available U6 (coed league), U8 (coed league) and U10 (boys and girls leagues) recreational teams that play in our "In-House" league (non-traveling). However, U12 and above recreational teams start traveling but are only formed if enough players sign up for a team each season.  FYI...you can mail in registrations forms as long as they are post marked by August 30th(Please email Janet Cooper at alwayzgon@aol.com so she is aware you have sent your form in the mail)

Stillwater Soccer Club Junior Academy (U10 and under):
We are very excited to start the SSC Junior Academy. Under the direction of Justin Elkington, the SSC Junior Academy is looking to bridge the gap between recreational players and competitive players by providing higher level training and competition for players. We are looking at forming boys and girls junior academy teams at the U10 and U8 age groups. One difference between U10, U8, U6 recreational teams and the U10 and under academy teams is there will be traveling to tournaments, friendlies and a possible junior academy league schedule (Home and Away). All junior academy games will be 8v8 format.  There will be some additional fees for those players who accept the junior academy invite.
 
Fall 2013 - SSC Junior Academy Fees include an additional $15 dollars on top of your recreational sign up fee and a possible small additional fee if dual registration with US Club is necessary. These fees DO NOT include cost for academy tournaments.
 
The SSC U10 and U8 recreational season and SSC junior academy seasons will go hand in hand together atStillwater Soccer Club. Players interested in participating with the junior academy will play on an SSCrecreational team during the season. This allows the players additional training and games during the season.  All junior academy teams will have training on Mondays (time is TBD). So for example, if your SSCrecreational team trains on Tuesdays and Thursdays, then those players in the SSC junior academy will have an additional training day on Monday (any conflicts with recreational and academy training sessions on Monday will be a family decision only). Please note that we are planning on working out a schedule for the recreational and junior academy teams to not have any game conflicts during the season.  Some Junior Academy games could take place on Saturdays (after SSC recreational games) and Sunday afternoons.
 
Junior Academy teams will initially be formed during a (2) day evaluation on Monday, August 26th and Tuesday, August 27th at Babcock Park (as mentioned above) for those parents and players who are interested. We plan on each junior academy team having a pool of 14 to 20 players per team to choose from each game during the season. Its nice to win but the junior academy teams will focus on skill and player development.  In other words coaches will have the opportunity to choose different players each game (if a player is unavailable one date then the coach moves on to the next player).  As the season progresses we all know and understand that players develop at different times and levels. So a player who didn't initially make the junior academy or missed the evaluation days could possibly be added later in the season/year.  Players who accept the junior academy invite will pay the additional fees and attend the training sessions.  However, just because you accept the junior academy invite does not mean you have to commit to attend every game/tournament the junior academy teams attend, nor are you committed for the whole year.
