Soccer Association Hands The Reins To SDHSAA

Soccer Association Hands The Reins To SDHSAA
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It's a historic day for Soccer in South Dakota. We’ve worked diligently over the past several years to implement High School Soccer into the schools as a fully sanctioned sport. We have achieved success in having 27 of the 30 school participants sanctioning soccer in their respective school districts and will continue to work with those not yet sanctioned.

The last schools to sanction this past week are Pierre, Brookings, Watertown, Spearfish, Yankton, Huron and the Vermillion girls after the announcement of Sioux Falls and Rapid City making the move last month.

The SDSSA High School Committee has been committed to leading the way for our soccer athletes to become part of a fully sanctioned sport since 1998.

We congratulate all the local SD soccer associations for their hard work and dedication to working with their school boards to get soccer sanctioned for their schools.

South Dakota Soccer has been the administrator of the High School Soccer league as a club sport since 1997. SDSSA is proud to hand over the reins to the South Dakota High School Activities Association as a fully sanctioned sport and is the last state in the country to sanction soccer.

The South Dakota State Soccer Association will still continue to provide recreational and competitive soccer activities to develop the next level of high school athletes and promote these players to the highest level of the professional game.
