Pre - MLS NEXT - Elite Level Training

We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!

The Pre - MLS NEXT teams compete in a full range of events. The US Club Soccer I-10 league and within US Youth Soccer as a member of the Mississippi Soccer Association. We also enter various competitive level tournaments throughout the seasonal year.

Pre - MLS NEXT is our elite level soccer program for boys and girls ages 7 to 11. This program is designed to allow players to train and compete at the highest level. These players train three times a week but depending on each team's weekend schedule, sometimes more, sometimes less. We also include our unique Super Weekends throughout the year.

Our players follow a detailed curriculum with a distinct 'Player Pathway' geared toward developing confident and skilled soccer players. The multidisciplinary curriculum is designed to develop players holistically in order to prepare them for the final steps into our MLS Next team, the 'STARS' minor league team, or into college and the professional level.

Achievement targets are set and annual player-parent meetings are held to ensure everyone is an active part of the process.

The goal of this program is simple: the best, training with the best, playing against the best, coached by the best, pushing players towards a higher level of performance.

As part of Pre - MLS NEXT, this program is more than just training—it's the beginning of a journey in soccer. Here, young athletes not only learn the game but also develop lifelong skills and connect with a community of like-minded peers. Our commitment to nurturing young talent is unwavering, and we look forward to welcoming your child to our community where their potential can truly flourish.

Join us at Southern States Soccer for Pre - MLS NEXT, where your child’s soccer journey begins and their future takes shape. Together, we're shaping the next generation of soccer stars, starting from the ground up.

Our Motto Is 'Partum in Futurum' - Creating the Future.

As years go by we will aim to put our players in the best possible place to receive college scholarship awards and to become upright, members of the community. Good character and education is as important to us as their soccer skills.
