Smyrna Soccer Club offers four levels of play for members:
Recreational - A developmental soccer program for all youth players. Smyrna Soccer supports US Youth Soccer’s teaching philosophy with respect to small-sided soccer in U-04, U-06 and U-08. This philosophy allows the game to be the teacher by maximizing each player’s touches on the ball and encourages all the players to develop their skills in all positions.
Player Development Program (PDP) - A unique soccer development program for Under 8 soccer players, which aims to accelerate the technical and tactical development of players preparing to participate in the U9 Academy program. We have recognized that there are many talented U8 players within our club, and in GA, who would benefit from a dedicated soccer environment to continue to nurture player ability and prepare them for higher-level soccer.
Academy - The select, competitive program for boys and girls teams from U-10 through U-12.
Select - The select, competitive program for boys and girls teams from U13-U18. Georgia classifies Select teams into 2 categories: Classic (boys U13-U19), and Athena (girls U13-U19). Classic and Athena are subdivided into categories based on the team’s level of play from Classic V (lowest) to Classic I (highest).
