Welcome to Jacksonville Area Soccer Association Select Program! JASA Select Program is an endeavour to provide the greater Jacksonville area and Onslow County with a quality and affordable Competitive Soccer experience.  Select soccer is a higher level of competition as compared to recreation soccer and requires dedication from the players and parents. Our Select program focuses on growth and development of our players and teams. This level of play starts at U10 and carries through U18. JASA Select coaches hold the appropriate level North Carolina Youth Soccer Association license for the age bracket they are coaching. Select soccer will develop the player’s technical skills, tactical knowledge and incorporate teamwork strategies.

Try-outs are annual open try-outs and held during the end of May. Select try-outs are conducted at the same time as the Classic Try-outs and usually are conducted over a 2 day period. We highly recommend that players attend both days. All players are highly encouraged to attend. Players are notified of their selection by the posting of their try-out numbers on the JASA webpage and also a phone call from the coach. When a player accepts a position on a Select/Classic team, they are expected to attend all team functions. Boys and Girls are separate divisions and ages are from U10-U18.  U11-U14 G/B Teams play in both the Fall and Spring seasons, while teams in the U15-18G only play in the Fall and U15-18B only play in the Spring.

Lastly, supplemental try-outs may be offered if there are available positions on a team.
