Recreation

The Recreational Program is 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-05, 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.

Recreational players in the U-12 and above age groups play in the Recreational Interaffiliate Scheduling Program (RIAS). This program allows for teams to schedule games with teams from other members of Georgia Soccer. The RIAS program is offered in the Fall and Spring seasons and is open to boys/coed teams and girls teams from the age group's U10 through U19.

SSC is a member of Georgia State Soccer Association (GSSA).Our age groups are mandated by this organization.Their regulations do not allow players to participate in a younger age group than their age allows. Player classification for the soccer year shall be determined by the player’s age as of August 1. A player must be at least 3 years of age to participate and no older than 18 years of age by August 1.

A player may play in his/her proper age group, or in an older age group. A player may NOT play in a younger age group.For regular-season play, once rostered to a team, a player is considered to be the age of that team.
