SSC tournament history
The SSC is an annual invitational tournament hosted by Grissom Men’s Soccer and sanctioned by the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS). Established in 2004 as a competitive venue to attract teams from the southeast and across the nation, the SSC is traditionally played at the premier stadium fields at the John Hunt Soccer Complex; a recurring site of the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) State Final Four. Huntsville High School was the site of the 2018 tournament and is the venue once again for 2019.
