RECREATIONAL REGISTRATION

COVID-19 NOTICE

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.

Registration Information

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.

Team Selection

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
Team Names

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.).

Team Rosters

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.
