Introduction

Welcome to Sunflower Soccer. Sunflower Soccer (SSA) is one of the largest youth soccer organizations in the area with nearly 1,800 registered players, ranging in age from 3 to 18 in both recreational and competitive levels of play. SSA strives to promote and teach the game of soccer, develop players at all levels, create an environment where area youth can learn good sportsmanship and fair play and encourage all players, officials, coaches and spectators to enjoy the game.

Our goal is to provide a fun experience in a no-pressure environment for kids so they can learn the beautiful game and develop a passion for soccer for many years to come.  We believe that youth sports play an important role in a child’s life. Children who participate in youth sports develop both physical, social, and life skills, including self-confidence, discipline, focus, friendship, and motivation. Physical activity also provides a benefit to the health of the participants in our program.

Our recreational soccer program provides boys and girls teams for ages U3 up through high school.  We compete in both spring and fall in house leagues and offer optional summer camps and training opportunities. The coaches for these teams are volunteer parents.

Professional coaches provide guidance and resources to aid our volunteer coaches in introducing age appropriate skills to help our recreational players learn and enjoy soccer.

Philosophy

Mission of Sunflower Soccer Association is to provide a fun, positive and creative learning environment for youth soccer players that focuses on the values of teamwork, humility, respect, and sportsmanship.

Coach Selection

You can volunteer as a parent coach for any team. There is no expectation of coaching experience and SSA will provide coaching education throughout the season.

Team Assignment/Registration

For the first time, Sunflower will welcome both full teams and individual players. The make-up of individual teams varies, but most are formed based on elementary school attendance. As a result, most teams choose to practice at locations that are aligned with or close proximity to elementary schools. All players must register individually through GotSoccer regardless if they are participating with a specific team. If a coach wishes to bring a team into the league, the team roster form must be filled out and submitted. As a reminder, absolutely no tryouts are allowed. If your team is found to have broken this rule, you will not be allowed to participate in the recreational program and your money will not be refunded.
