The season is set to begin in late July/early August and run until mid-November. GBFC recognizes that the COVID19 restrictions and recommendations continue to be updated and will adhere to those as they change. If we are required to cancel the playing season for the Fall, we will automatically refund 100% of the registration fee to your original form of payment.
Player registration takes place in the Spring of each calendar year. After the registrations are completed then the applicants are separated by gender and age group. From there they are placed on tentative teams based on the criteria used below. If late players are accepted, they are put on rosters on an as needed basis and the above guidelines may be disregarded. Final team placement is made by the club registrar when the roster is created.
Specific team placement is never guaranteed. Teams are composed through the consideration of many factors. They are primarily, but not limited to:
- Player's age
- Returning to previous year's team
- Nearest public school or child's residence
- Special Requests submitted at the time of registration
No team name can be changed after official rosters have been handed out. Team names are chosen prior to the beginning of the season. No duplicate names should be used in the club. This allows for clarification in all club information which names are used (schedules, pictures, sponsorships, etc.).
Each coach shall keep with him/her an official team roster listing all active players for that season.
The following roster minimum / maximums will be considered:
- U6 - U8 10 min / 14 max plays 4V4 2 sided field
- U9 - U10 10 min / 14 max plays 7V7
- U11 - U12 11 min / 16 max plays 9V9
- U13 - U14 11 min / 20 max plays 11v11
- U15 - U19 11 min / 22 max plays 11V11
No team roster will be changed without prior approval from the club registrar. Amended rosters will be sent out to the coach (s) once a change has been authorized. This includes, but is not limited to, any add, transfer or removal of players or coaches.
You will hear from your coach in early August with your child’s team assignment and practice times/location. Practices will start in early August and the first game will be scheduled for August 29th. The season will run until Mid-November. Games are scheduled on Saturdays and with 1-3 practices per week, depending on your coaches preference.
The registration fee is $125 for each player.
We have new registration software this year. You must create a NEW account. Once you put in your player’s information the system should recognize the player and autofill some criteria. Please VERIFY your information is correct and update where needed.
You will be required to upload a copy of your player's birth certificate while registering. Please have this digital copy available before you begin. Hospital and Baptismal certificates are not accepted. It must be an official copy or passport. If you a have questions or concerns, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be contacted by your assigned coach in late July/early August. Please be patient while we take the time to make your soccer experience the best we can. We do not have information about practice schedules as they are decided on by the individual coaches. Practice will begin in August.
