2020 SUMMER COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

2020 Summer Competitive Traveling Program


The GGFSC Summer Competitive program is GGFSC's top offering for soccer players who want to develop their skills to a higher level and compete in tournaments and other games against talented competitive teams throughout the region. As we all know, this summer is a little bit different!  We will be starting practices the week of June 15.  In July, we will be going to the rescheduled tournament in Fargo.  We are hoping to add at least one more tournament, but options are limited (a lot of them are the same weekend as the Fargo one).  We will also be working with area clubs to set up friendly games.  Many things will be subject to change, but we will do our best to make it an enjoyable, if shortened season for the kids.


Here's how to register:

Find the appropriate age division in the registration buttons at the bottom of the page and follow the instructions within. 

 

Registration deadline:

  • JUNE 12, 2020.  PLEASE REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Cost: 

  • All ages U8-U18: $225
    • This includes all of our insurance, association, and park district fees; practices; the Fargo tournament; and hopefully a few friendly games
    • If we add tournaments to the schedule (we hope to add at least one, maybe two), extra fees will be added and you will be responsible for payment at that time


Please note that our website adds a $3 processing fee to registrations.  If paying by check, you must still include the $3 fee as the website charges the club regardless if a payment is made by check or credit card.

Hotel, uniforms, and travel costs are not included and are the sole responsibility of the registrant’s family.

Age divisions: 
Age divisions are based on birth year
Please visit our age breakdown page explaining what division your athlete belongs in for the 2019-20 season. 

  • U8-U10 teams are considered non-competitive.  They typically play jamboree-style tournaments, get fairly equal playing time, and rotate through several positions.
  • U11-U12 play in competitive-style tournaments, but get mostly equal playing time. Players begin to be moved toward position specialization.
  • U13 and up play in competitive-style tournaments.  Playing time is at the discretion of the coach (though all players will get a fair amount of playing time).

 

Remember, the Summer Competitive Traveling Program is about more than games and playing time.  GGFSC’s main focus is player development.


Coaches:
GGFSC Coaches are licensed by US Soccer (or equivalent), hired by GGFSC, and supervised by Scott Nordin, the GGFSC Technical Director.  If you are interested in coaching, download a coaching application here.  We do allow parent coaches.  You may contact Scott Nordin at [email protected]


Team formation:
Players will be assigned to teams by the Technical Director and the coaching staff based on their age.  It is our goal to keep teams as age pure as possible and to minimize movement.  In cases where we are forced to move players, we will be moving up the most skilled (as recommended by the Technical Director/Coaching Staff) among the older players from the age group below.  For example, if our U14 team is in need of two U13 players, the two that will move up will be the most skilled from the U13 group that are among the older players in that group.  When necessary, if player movement does not make sense or if certain age groups are way short, we may combine age groups to minimize the movement.   If there happens to be two teams in an age group we will attempt to keep those teams even unless there is a clear reason to make an A and a B team.  In the end, final enrollment numbers dictate what must be done to form our competitive teams.  The approach outlined above will guide our team formation as much as possible while we also consider the players' development, competition, balance, participation, and fun.


Divisions that do not have enough players registered may either be combined with other age-appropriate divisions (must play as higher age group) or canceled outright. Registrants of canceled divisions, or registrants who cannot be placed on a team for whatever reason, will receive full refunds.

Please note: With the current situation, it is difficult to predict how many will sign up, and team formation may end up being a big challenge this year.  We will do our best to make this a fun experience for all participants.

Roster caps are as follows:

U8-U10 age divisions: Max roster 12 players (7v7 on field)
U11-U12 age divisions: Max roster 15 players (9v9 on field)
U13-U18 age divisions: Max roster 18 players (11v11 on field)


While unlikely, situations may arise where an age division has too many players (even after player movement).  In these situations, the Technical Director and/or coaching staff may determine player eligibility/participation for tournaments. Players who do not make the tournament roster will receive a $75 refund per tournament.  Players who do not make the tournament roster may also opt out of the entire season and receive a full refund.  Note: this would apply only to players who do not make the tournament roster.  Simply not being able to participate in a specific tournament does not qualify for a refund.

Practices: 
-- 2 practices per week in June (most likely Tuesdays/Thursdays)
-- 3 practices per week in July (most likely Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays)

Practices will; be subject to GGFSC's Return to Play Plan. We will determine the week of June 14th, before practices start, what phase we will start out with.


Tournaments:
GGFSC will travel to the Tri-City tournament in Fargo July 17-19.  This tournament is included in the registration cost.
Additionally, we will try to find at least one other tournament to participate in, most likely in July.  Options are currently very limited.  Additional charges will be billed for extra tournament(s).

Friendlies:  We intend to schedule and play friendly games in addition to tournaments and are working with area clubs.  There are no guarantees, but we hope to arrange games for all teams.

Holiday Break: GGFSC will break in observation of Independence Day July 2nd through July 5th.  No games or activities will take place during this period.

Uniforms:   Uniforms must be purchased by registrants.  We will be using the same uniforms as we did in 2019.  We will also use the same uniforms in 2021.
New players as well as returning players who needs a different size or otherwise a replacement item (check your closets now!), will need to order ASAP.  Please contact Chad Robertson at [email protected] if you are in need of uniforms.  We are now able to submit orders.

Note: We will not be providing t-shirts this season.

All registrants will receive a free GGFSC decal.

Note: Due to potential developments related to COVID-19, our season plans may change at any time.  We will do our best to make this season work, but it's hard to make guarantees.  Should tournaments be canceled, we will refund for applicable tournaments you have paid for. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
