Syracuse Sports Association was started with a simple idea: provide a wide variety of leagues for everyday players that are safe and fun.

At The Syracuse Sports Association (SSA), their number one goal is good sportsmanship. They believe that good sportsmanship will result in a great experience for everyone. Sports often can be viewed as a way of life, a religion, or a huge business enterprise. At it’s core, everyone at SSA believes that all of our sports should be enjoyable. SSA offers a wide range of sports from Kickball to Cornhole. They encourage you to take a look around and join the sport or league that fits you and your team best!
