Elite Development Academy

South Mississippi Soccer Club Elite Development Academy Mission Statement

The SMSC Elite Development Academy program focuses on positively impacting players to assist them in maximizing their development within South Mississippi Soccer Club. The Elite Development Academy values individual development over winning trophies and titles and focuses on developing those players with the desire to learn. The Academy sets the standard for our youth soccer players that we hope will impact their skills development, self-confidence, soccer education and overall love of the game.   The EDA will focus on the fundamentals of the game that will correlate to a real style of play.

Elite Development Academy Information

The Elite Development Academy is for 8U, 10U, and 12U REC players and is designed to provide our REC athletes with an introduction to advanced training and play.  This training program will be curriculum based and takes the place of our All-Star program.  We're excited about the improved structure and dynamic and are looking forward to making a positive impact. If your child is interested and shows the desire to learn, the EDA is an excellent start. 

The next EDA enrollment will take place in  the Spring of 2021.
