About the Playbook

THE Playbook was created from the athlete’s perspective, on an athlete’s journey through the game of sport, transitioning into the game of LIFE! Education is our Playbook, Sports is our blueprint and LIFE is our game! We support our mantra by fostering a TEAM approach to YOU, the student. Equipping you with the right tools to build a solid foundation for your Name, Image, and Likeness.


OK, let’s gamify this process…

How to Play

Your goal is to incorporate 4 - SSA pillars into your personal Playbook.

Financial Literacy: + Personal Development: + Community: + Marketing = Success

What is your goal?

What is your goal? Short-term (1 – 6 months) or Long term (6 months+)

This example is an attempt to help determine or encourage your “why”? You want to give yourself a shot at making the starting lineup this off-season with personal training. However, the cost of extra training outside of your team activities makes it tough for your family to afford it.   

Sign up for a membership, and schedule your Discovery Session. This puts your play in action and you’ve extended your opportunity to better yourself and provide for your family. This qualifies you for the next step.

What’s the play coach!?

What’s the play coach!? 

During the Discovery Session, we call a huddle. You, your parent/guardian, and an SSA affiliate devise a game plan that includes 4 of the SSA core values as your short-term goals. Your discovery session determines your short-term goals, and are derived from our list of Work Hard options. This gives us a clear path to your long-term goal(s) to get you to that off-season training.

Too easy! My best player…choosing their own play…for the win!? Let’s get it!

After creating your work-hard goals, follow through by getting your Work Hard options signed off by a parent/ guardian and SSA coach to earn points.

This step is crucial!

Each activity MUST be approved as a qualifying event via SSA affiliates and approved by the Executive Director.
