Player Registration Information and Deadlines
Welcome to the dedicated family of competitive summer soccer! Athletes in the summer traveling program are
coached by licensed coaches, and have the opportunity to develop and enhance their soccer skills through
weekly practices and competition at weeknight league games and weekend tournaments.
The club generally attends three tournaments in June and July and participates in league play. The travel is
generally within a 300-400 mile radius of Grand Forks. Players are expected to make a commitment to
their team for the entire season and to participate in all tournaments. Parents are responsible for getting
their athlete(s) to the tournaments and league games with all required equipment and are also responsible for
all expenses related to tournament travel such as lodging accommodations, meals, etc.
Although our summer soccer program only lasts approximately two months, it takes months of preparation and
organization each season to provide this opportunity for players. Therefore, we strongly encourage all athletes
to be registered with the club in the late summer or fall preceding the next season. A completed registration
form and $35 fee will hold a spot for your player on our summer 2013 teams. Here is a time line for our club for
next year’s season:
July 2012 Player registration begins: teams are filled on a 1st come, 1st served basis
based on the date registration forms are received by the club
November 2012 Early player registration deadline: players who have paid their fees in full by
this date receive a 10% discount
January 2013 U13-U19 teams must be fully registered in order to be eligible to represent
the GGFSC club in the regional qualifier soccer tournament

March 1, 2013 Player registration deadline: all those wishing to play for a GGFSC team

We encourage all athletes, with the support of their parents, to take part in any opportunities that may arise to
improve their skill level. For the youth, there is Sunflake Soccer; for all athletes, there are camps available in
the area, the GGFSC sponsored winter indoor program, as well as school sponsored teams.
GGFSC fees go towards coaching and player development costs (approximately 2/3) and tournament
registration (1/3). As a club we desire to adequately compensate our coaches and recognize their time and
financial commitment to practice and travel with their team. Families may be required to participate in
We thank you for your support and expect that you will help by volunteering in some capacity. We know that
you and your athlete(s) will enjoy summer soccer! If you have any questions, please contact a club Board
member or visit with a team manager. Contact information is available on the club web site, www.ggfsc.com.
