Why choose Academy?

The focus is on individual player development and not on wins/losses.  Our goal is to have every player feel comfortable with the ball at their feet.  We encourage creativity by creating an environment where players feel safe to make mistakes.

Players will learn:

  • New footwork and moves
  • Proper passing, receiving, and shooting technique
  • Proper defending technique
  • How beat an opponent using a move in a 1v1 situation and defend against an opponent
  • Work in pairs to move the ball around an opponent or defend against an opponent

We understand that children develop at different rates, so we try to adjust our Academy program for that.  Players will be placed on teams, but will have an opportunity to train with other teams and coaches in their birth year throughout the year. 

We also understand that we are working with children and that they may be interested in other activities.  We fully support all players to participate in other sports and/or activities.   Playing multiple sports is better for player development.

Registration Fees

2011:  $625 for the year w/a licensed, paid coach.

Academy Registration

For all those players who attended Academy Clinics the week of June 3rd and are wanting to play in the Academy Program which is year-round, the 2019-20 Registration will be open June 8th.

Reminder that GSC is using Affinity for player registration.  If you were not with GSC this past year or two, you will need to create an account and upload a copy of your child's birth certificate and photo.  Once their DOB is verified, the BC will be gone from our system for security purposes.
