2020 Summer Competitive Traveling 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. The competitive program involves travel to other cities in North Dakota, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Summer is a beautiful time to be out on the pitch and prior competitive experience is not required. What are you waiting for? Join now!


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:

  • February 29, 2020
  • Late registrations will be accepted through March 16, 2020, but are assessed a $50 late fee.

Cost: 

  • Girls U8-U14:  $550
    • Or choose a 6-month payment plan of $100 per month for a total of $600
  • Girls U15-U18: $500*
    • Or choose a 6-month payment plan of $100 per month for 5 months with a final payment of $50 for a total of $550
    • *The overall cost for this group is less due to the high-school season not allowing girls this age to start the competitive season until the high school season has finished.
  • Boys, all age groups: $550
    •  Or choose a 6-month payment plan of $100 per month for a total of $600


Please note that our website adds a $3 pr
ocessing 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.


Payment Plans

As indicated above, you may sign up for a payment plan instead of paying the entire fee upfront.  Note that paying the entire fee upfront is a lower total cost.  Payment due dates are the 22nd of every month, January through June.  You must provide the first payment when signing up.  If you sign up after one of the subsequent installment dates, previous installments will be due when registering.


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 the GGFSC Technical Director.  If you are interested in coaching, download a coaching application here.  We do allow parent coaches.


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.


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)

Note that the Bemidji Blowout Tournament is a 6v6 tournament (though with no maximum roster) and teams may be split/players reassigned depending on numbers.


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: 
UPDATE 3/21:  The season start has been delayed until May. Practices will be held Mondays and Wednesdays.  Specific times for these sessions will be announced at a future time.  Players will be practicing with their respective age groups until teams are formed.  Teams will be formed in mid-May.  We will move outdoors as soon as field conditions allow.  In June, we will start practicing three-four times per week.  There is never a practice on the Monday following a tournament.

Girls participating in the Middle School and High School soccer programs may attend practices as able and as their coaches permit.  They cannot play competitive games until the middle school or high school season is completed.  U15+ girls will not start practices until the end of the high school season.

 

Note: practices will be scheduled around the GGFSC Rec Program in April/May for girls and boys in those age groups.


Actual practice days and times will be announced after teams have been formed and is based on coach and field availability.


While the season ends after our last tournament in mid-July, we will again provide opportunities to participate in a Fall Competitive season.

Spring Meeting: Date and time TBA.  We will follow the same format as last year with individual age group meetings at the Scheels conference room.


Tournaments:
GGFSC will travel to four out of town tournaments (see specifics posted below) as well as attend the Greater Grand Forks Soccer Tournament in GF.  This is an increase from last year, which is reflected in the cost of the program. 

Cluster games/Friendlies:  We intend to continue to schedule and play friendly games and/or cluster games in addition to tournaments but we have not yet finalized our plan for this summer.  More information to follow.

Mid-Season Break: GGFSC will break in observation of Independence Day June 29 through July 5.  There will be no practices or games this week.

Uniforms:   Uniforms must be purchased by registrants.  We will be using the same uniforms as we did in 2019.
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 uniforms by the end of March.  More information to follow.

2020 Tournaments



NOTE: The tournament schedule is still subject to change




NSC All American Cup (Blaine) Hotel

The NSC All-American Cup is a stay-to-play tournament.  This means we are required to stay at the hotel designated for us (unless you are staying with family, which is ok).  

Multiple room blocks for the All American Cup in Blaine, MN on June 5-7 have been set up for our club.  The individual blocks are based on room type for each of two hotels - Holiday Inn Express and Homewood Suites - located in the same vicinity.  Choose one of the links below based on your hotel and room preference.  If the link you choose shows that the block is full, please choose a different link.

Please disregard that all of the blocks indicate they are for GGFSC U12B Gold, they are for all GGFSC teams! (In order to be allocated a room block, we had to register one team and this is the team name we registered at this point.  All of our other registrations are pending.) 

When asked to enter a Team ID, just enter GGFSC.  You will also be asked to enter your child's age group or gender, for example U14 Boys.

Please note the blocks currently expire at 11:59 on March 27th (we will likely ask for an extension of that date). Update: The block has been extended to April 24. Please reserve by this date if you are able.

NOTE: Rooms can be canceled through June 3, should there be a change to our season.

Holiday Inn Express Minneapolis - Golden Valley
