South Central Soccer Academy the premier soccer club on the south side of Indianapolis serving Greenwood, Whiteland and Franklin IN. Come join the fun offering recreational, TOPSoccer and travel leagues.
What is the Academy ? (Updated for Fall 2018 / Spring 2019)
The Academy is the travel side of SCSA for players between u9 and u10.
U9s are players born in 2010. U10s are born in 2009.
The Academy focuses on technique, development and the love of the game. The coaches work hard to create a safe environment for all levels of player to develop while having the freedom to be creative and self-sufficient gamers. We understand that winning is important but we believe that development is paramount.
In the Academy, all players play all positions and playing time is equal. We train hard on dribbling, passing, receiving and shooting while teaching tactics with activities that are fun and present problems to solve.
We are more than just wins and losses, practices and games...we are a place where kids can be apart of something bigger than themselves while learning how to be teammates, leaders, soccer players and better people. We are the Academy and to us, that means family.
Halloween Extravaganza - The Thursday before Halloween or one in late October where the Academy all dress up in their costumes and play soccer. The coaches go all out for this and siblings are invited to participate!
Academy Movie Night Outside - Periodically our Academy will have an open weekend where we have no league games, when this happens we sometimes play inter-squad scrimmages near dusk and then gather near our indoor facility where we project a movie and watch it on blankets and lawn chairs!
Team Camp Talent Show - With our fall season starting with a 2 day team camp, we have a tradition where on the 2nd day, we host a players talent show with on average 30 acts! It is a blast and lots of talent!
Academy Olympics - During the droll of winter training, we put together soccer events that are performed by our Academy players who are broken into different teams aka countries!
End of the Year Party on the Pitch Festival - The coaches and club leaders put on a free end of the season festival for all our SCSA families to come together and have a fun evening with dinner, games and entertainment.
We know soccer is not the center of the universe and so we are understanding when players need to miss and playing time is never effected.
We will play in the Indiana Soccer League. The travel is all local. Bloomington, Columbus, Fishers...etc. We play on Saturdays and usually in the late morning for girls and afternoon for boys.
The community and culture of the Academyare as important as anything else. So we do lots of fun culture building events like movie nights to facilitate our players and families connecting outside of just training.
The Academy is ALWAYS accepting new players into the program! So if you want to join us for winter team training and the spring season, please email our Academy Director, Jody Young at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact Academy Director if you have any questions.
