Welcome to the web home of the Seymour Soccer Association! The SSA Board asks that you visit our site frequently as this will be the centralized resource for information. Please check back regularly for news, scores, weather updates, coach and family materials, schedules, directions, registration information, and much more.
The mission of SSA is to provide a means of recreation to all the children of Seymour while promoting the sport of soccer and developing the skills of individual players. SSA’s vision is to create and encourage an environment consistent with good sportsmanship, physical fitness, respect, team play, and having fun.
SSA believes that youth sports should construct a foundation of confidence and team collaboration that youngsters can transfer to their lives. SSA is also proud to partner with Academica Futebol Club(AFC), a company composed of experienced soccer professionals that support SSA's volunteers and share SSA's goals.
As the great coach John Wooden said, “Sports do not build character. They reveal it.” It is my hope that Seymour’s young people will indeed reveal their character and realize the joy that participating in soccer brings.
Thank you. I look forward to continued success as well as the relationships to be made out on the pitch!
