Southern States Soccer is in Birmingham, Alabama located at Quad Sports & Fitness in the Vestavia Hills Neighborhood.
Southern States Soccer has both a boys and girls program running out of Quad Sports & Fitness.
The boys program is a merger between boys from around the southern Mississippi and northern Louisiana area who train at our main Hattiesburg location - The Oakes Training Center in Oak Grove, Mississippi - and the Birmingham area boys. The players are all coached by coaches based at The Oakes who travel three times a week to Quad Fitness & Sports. The players are following the same annual, monthly and weekly curriculum in both Quad and at The Oakes. We also use our unique SuperWeekends when everybody comes together to train at a single location either in Birmingham, Ala. or in Oak Grove, Miss. The strength of the curriculum and its structured phases together with our professional coaching ensures a seamless transition and an attractive playing style where player development is the key.
The girls program in Birmingham has not been merged with our Oakes based group. The Birmingham girls are trained under the direction of Anton McEwan (Director of Coaching - Birmingham Girls). Anton has a vast amount of playing and coaching experience and is an emigrant of South Africa. He played professionally in his homeland before playing at college in the US. After college he coached in Hattiesburg and Jackson, Mississippi before moving to Birmingham. He recently coached for the Hoover Soccer Club until joining Southern States Soccer.
