We at SAA wanted to take a moment to recognaize the  accomplishments of the following volunteers and programs:

 

Nikki Morini has been named one of the 2019 Illinois Women in Soccer Award recipients by the Illinois State Soccer Association. This award was established in 1999 and recognizes the impact of the dedication and commitment of women in soccer in Illinois.  Nikki's individual contributions to the sport as a coach, manager, official, and volunteer are being recognized.

 

Brian Hensgen, long time SAA Rec Soccer board member and current advisor earned his US Soccer Federation "C" Coaching license.  He was only 1 of 25 coaches in Illinois who took the class and passed the rigorous test.

 

Our SAA Rec TOPSoccer program (The Outreach Program for Soccer) was recognized by US Soccer and awarded a grant this past December. TOPSoccer is a community based program through U.S Youth Soccer for children 5 and older with a physical or intellectual disability.

BASEBALL

Spring Evaluations: Spring baseball season is just around the corner.  Evaluations for the upcoming season will be held on Sunday, February 16th at the Schaumburg Sportscenter.  All families with registered players will receive an email at a later date with their evaluation schedule.  Please mark your calendars for this date; we are hoping to get as many registered players to evaluations as possible.  If you have additional questions, see the SAA Baseball Website.

 

Spring Registration: Registration is still open for our Spring Season. Registration will remain open until the completion of our Spring evaluations on Sunday, February 16th.  Live registrations will be taken at evaluations.  No refunds will be honored after this date.

 

Want to be more involved with the SAA Baseball Program?  We are looking for more board members to help support the program. Please reach out to Jason Batalden at jason.batalden@saa-online.com if you would like more information.

VOLLEYBALL

 

Get your boys ready for Junior High Tryouts!  

 

Our two day clinic registration is open!  February 26th and February 28th

at the Sports Center 6pm - 8pm.  Registration is limited.   Again Tyler Malwitz will be running this two day event.

We are so excited to announce our newest program. 

 

Calling all high schoolers!  We have a league for you. Watch for details and registration opening on or about April 1, 2020. 

 

Thank you to all who came out for the Jr. High Girls Clinic in January.  It was a huge success.

 

Keep digging it.

TRAVEL BASEBALL

It is hard to believe that we are only two months away from opening day starting in April.   

 

All Flyers teams now have one month of winter indoor practice under their belts in our brand new warehouse. As for the new warehouse, I’d like thank all the coaches that assisted in getting it up and running. There was a lot of work put into it and we are very lucky to have our own space for the winter/early spring months to train and practice. Each team gets plenty of time and slots which is a huge luxury to have.   So far the comments and reviews I have received from parents have been extremely positive.   

 

Flyers teams will have scheduling meetings coming up in February for MSBL and WSBL league play. Also, several Flyers teams will be heading out of state for numerous tournaments this season and our 12u Blue team will be heading to Cooperstown, NY in July which is a great tournament and an amazing experience that each player and family will experience.
