SASA Player Placement 2021-2022

Quotes from high school coaches.

The coaches all emphasize that playing club soccer is not a requirement to play high school soccer.  But in fielding the best team possible to compete against other schools, coaches play the best players.  And based on their experience, those players are the ones that play club soccer.

Riverton High School Coach Chris Bertolino

"Do it"

Springfield High Coach Pat Phillips

“I encourage it greatly.,” says Phillips. “It is very hard for players that do not play club to get on the field during the high school season.”

Rochester High School Boys Coach Chad Kutscher

“We have been the most successful in the seasons that our roster is full of club players,” adds Kutscher.  “I tell them that it's a must if they want to take their game to the next level.”

Glenwood-Chatham Coach Tommy Johnson 

“It is important for them to be around the game as much as possible,” Johnson adds. “Playing and being around the game more often results in quicker on the field decision making, increased knowledge of the game, better footwork, and simply a better understanding of the game.”
