Have you considered coaching, assisting or even providing your effective organizational skills to leading or helping manage a youth recreational soccer team for a season? Did you know that prior experience is NOT required? Still interested? Beyond athleticism, your efforts in positive coaching & team management could provide opportunity to life-long impacts in building players' personal self-confidence, which they'll be able to take with them off the field and apply to their daily living.
If you're already certain you'd like to work directly with a youth soccer team for our 2019 Fall Outdoor Season, then please click here to apply. If you would like additional information and to speak with a seasoned Coach on more what these roles involve, please don't hesitate to contact our Director of Coaching, Tyler Louder, or our Vounteer Coordinator, Angel Sheddan, to ask questions or just gain more information.

Sturgis Soccer Association is strictly a volunteer non-profit organization whose purpose is to serve our children and community. Our mission is to provide a safe, healthy, and competitive alternative to the youth of our community. We also offer adult programs.
We have won the award for the largest increase in registrations for the state of South Dakota and remain extremely competitive throughout each season. We host two major tournaments every year.
Drive for excellence, teach for passion, grow with pride.
Sturgis Soccer we hope you all are enjoying your Summer break and the 79th Sturgis Rally. The Summer is moving fast and registration has now closed, meaning school, Fall and soccer are quickly approaching. Your SSA Board has been hard at work over the Summer. Following is a short list of the action items we have been working on. Remember, the board meeting is always on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Chamber of Commerce building (August 19th, 2019 next meeting) at 7 P.M. We still have the position of scheduler open, if anyone would like to apply to join the board.
The board has coordinated and worked closely with the City Manager to take steps in upgrading our facility. A bidding process will start very soon to upgrade our fields playing surface, a project that will either take place in late Fall or Spring. We are currently in the process of obtaining quotes on the cost of a new fence to outline our facility. One that will not only make the facility look better, but will help provide safety for your children while at the fields.
The Executive Committee has worked very closely with the SBHS Athletic Director to expand our Spring and Fall tournaments. Permission was granted to use the new practice fields at the high school, allowing the association to open U-14 divisions in our tournaments for the 1st time.
Our new Director of Coaching has been working diligently on a new handbook to better assist new and veteran coaches. Along with spearheading our new Coaches Appreciation night (more info to come).
These are just a few of the Summer projects we have been working on. On a side note, we would like to thank you all once again for your help in cleaning our fields after the devastating July rain. We truly are a "community through soccer".
Your Executive Committee
President: Don Wolkenhauer
Vice President: Paul Smith
