Player Registration Information and Deadlines


Welcome to the dedicated family of soccer! Our soccer athletes are coached by licensed coaches, and have the opportunity to develop and enhance their soccer skills.

The Summer Competitve Traveling Soccer players generally attend three tournaments in June and July and participates in league play. The travel is generally within a 300-400 mile radius of Grand Forks. In the summer of 2014, we will be hosting a soccer tournament, here in 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 Competitive summer soccer program only lasts approximately three 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.

Each player must register every year. A completed registration form and $50 fee will hold a spot for your player on our 2013-2014 teams and league. Here is a time line for our club for next year’s season:

 

September 2013 Player registration begins: Competitive travelling soccer teams are filled on a 1st come, 1st served basis based on the date registration forms are received by the club

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
fundraising activities.

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 soccer and the GGFSC! If you have any questions, please contact a club Board member or visit with a team manager. Please note that the primary communication tool used in the GGFSC is the web site and facebook, and member’s e-mail address. With this in mind please notify the club in case of e-mail address changes promptly.

Best regards,
The Greater Grand Forks Soccer Club Board
