SSA Youth Teams

We strongly believe our youth team programme is one of the best in Hampshire outside of the professional youth academies. We provide a service and programme that can be beneficial to all children regardless of ability or previous experience. We seek and implement advice and guidance from professional academies that we have positive working relationships, this is to ensure we are coaching the players the most contemporary and relevant topics to their development.


All of our youth team coaching is conducted in a structured way that promotes a higher level of learning, monitors player development and is quality assured by our Technical Director on a weekly basis. All age groups follow their own specific year round syllabus which enables us to compartmentalize the players learning into distinct learning blocks, for example the focus of a particular theme being 1vs 1 attacking with the focus on a particular theme for example 1 vs 1 attacking. All players are then set targets within the topic catered to their stage of development for both fixtures and training.


“Our vision is to develop players that are comfortable in possession, creative and innovative on the ball and aesthetic to watch.”
