The Club is a division of Frontier Country Soccer Association (FCSA), which is a one of the seven divisions of the Oklahoma Soccer Association (OSA). These groups all adhere to the guidelines set forth by the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) and the Federation Internationale de Futbol Association (FIFA).

Photos and Birth Certificates: At fall registration, or when new in the spring, a photo and a copy of the player's birth certificate are required at registration. The photo will be used to create a photo ID player pass that each coach keeps for referee inspection at games. The birth certificate will be kept on file with SSC's registrar as required by FCSA.
Attire: A jersey will be provided by SSC for use during the season. The items provided by each player are basic shorts and soccer socks (color is set by individual teams), as well as shin guards and soccer cleats cleats.
Teams: Teams are formed to utilize the maximum number of players. Both boys and girls teams are offered when the numbers allow. Girls can play on boy's teams with coach and board approval. Requests for team placement are accepted and serviced as best as possible. Unfortunately, requests cannot be guaranteed.
Games: The fall season starts in early September; the spring season begins in March. Both seasons consist of 7-10 games scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. Coaches should begin contacting players in late August (fall season) or lat February (spring season) and games should begin about mid-September/mid-March. All U10 games are played in Stillwater, and their schedules are set after the traveling team schedules are set. It is important to note that with U12 and above as traveling teams, typically HALF the games will be played in Stillwater and HALF out of town within Frontier Country, generally taking about 1 to 1.5 hrs to reach. It is the policy of SSC and FCSA that each player plays at least half the game.
Cancellation: Games are generally played regardless of weather (except lightening & thunder). However it is sometimes necessary to cancel a game. The team coach is the person to supply this information or call if there are questions.
Practice: Normally practices are held twice per week at a Stillwater location, and are 1 to 1.5 hrs in length and are scheduled by the team's coach.
Coaches: All SSC coaches are volunteers. Many take advantage of training available through OSA. Their clinics are offered at various times and locations throughout the year. With this training, anyone who enjoys working with youth can be an effective coach. Please contact SSC to find out more about coaching.
Referees: The only paid members of SSC are our referees. Anyone willing to learn the game, attend training, AND pass the test (age 12 or older is recommended) can be a referee. Training is offered in Stillwater in early August. Please check our Referees page or contact a member of SSC to find out more about being a referee.
