Sussex Soccer Academy JPL Teams

Junior Premier League Teams


Sussex Soccer Academy in the JPL

Sussex Soccer Academy has has had an exciting 2nd season in the Junior Premier League. Our u9s & u10s have grown massively as individuals and as squads. This is down to the high standard and environment created at the JPL matches. We are now looking to add a new current u9s squad in preperation for the 2019/20 season as well as strengthen our current teams.

The JPL's whole ethos is "To be the best, you have to play the best" and we couldn't agree more! They also hold the statistic of 10% of the kids playing being signed to a full academy contract with a professional club. This is a great chance for us to show what great talent we have available in Sussex County. Please see below for infomation on our trials for the 2019/20 SSA teams and for more info on the JPL CLICK HERE.

Sussex Soccer Academy Open Trials

Due to an exciting 2nd season and pushing players on to Academy Trials and Elite programmes at pro clubs we are looking to strengthen our teams for the upcoming season. Sessions are delivered by qualified UEFA B coaches who also coach at local pro clubs. The sessions are tailed to suit the individual player and the squad and are designed to be challenging while being fun. Our teams have been very successful in the last 2 seasons, working hard and being placed in the top league within the JPL and earning invitations to play at Brighton, Southampton and Chelsea's training grounds.

We will be holding open trials for our 2019/20 squads for the Junior Premier League. Trials will take place on grass at West Wittering FC on Saturday April 13th. From 10-12 for Current U8, U9 & U10s.

Trials are for this season U8, U9 & U10s. This would be children currently in year 3, 4 & 5. Please CLICK HERE to book your child a place on the trial day.

We train once a week from 6-8 with the first half an hour our players have to come into classroom and do school homework or reading before they head out to train from 6:30-8. We look to use football to help develop the whole child and help them acheive both on the pitch and in the classroom to help shape them into well rounded young men and ladies. Matches are played on a Saturday which are run in Academy format with longer matches to ensure plenty of playing and learning moments for our players. We look to give plenty of opportunties for our players to flurish with regular trips and matches against Professional Clubs.
