Winter Academy Information

 

GGFSC Winter Academy (2019-20)


 

The GGFSC Winter Academy Program provides an opportunity for your soccer athletes (ages 4-18) to play soccer during the winter months (November through February). This is a great program for those looking to get some winter training to improve skills, prepare for the GGFSC Rec and Summer Competitive programs, or just to have fun playing soccer. Each 55-minute session is run by certified GGFSC coaches and will focus on continued skill development.

The Winter Academy is split into two halves: Winter Academy #1 (Nov-Dec) and Winter Academy #2 (Jan-Feb).  You will register separately for each period.

New this winter: 

  • We are adding more options (days and times) and sessions, giving everyone a better chance to participate than previous years.
  • You can now sign up only for the days that work for you.  No need to worry about what days may or may not work!
  • We are adding a "Goalkeeper clinic" focused on developing goalkeeper skills.  Whether you have played goalkeeper before, are interested in potentially playing in goal, or just want to learn and become a better all-rounded soccer player:  Everyone is invited to sign up for these sessions, not just goalkeepers!

 

Who is eligible:
GGFSC athletes ages U4-U18 (born 2002-2016).  U4-U7 sessions will be co-ed; all other divisions may be separated by gender if numbers allow.

Please check the age matrix to see what age group your athlete will play in.


Registration instructions:

  • Please click one of the registration links below to add sessions you want to sign up for.  You should add all the sessions you want to participate in to your cart before completing the registration process.  This allows you to qualify for our volume discount (if you sign up for more than one session).
  • Registration for Winter Academy #1 (Nov-Dec) closes November 1.  We would love for you to sign up as early as possible so that we can schedule coaches accordingly.  If a session still has open spots, you may sign up after November 1, however, all registrations will incur a $10 late fee at that time.
  • Each session has a limited number of spots and is first come, first serve.  If a session is full, you may add your name to the wait list.  If certain sessions have a large number of players on the wait list we may consider adding additional sessions for that age group.
  • GGFSC reserves the right to cap, cancel or combine sessions depending on the number of registrants.  Full refunds will be given for canceled sessions.
  • These registrations are for the Winter Academy sessions only, not for futsal tournaments.  Separate registrations will be available at a later time for futsal tournaments.
  • Registrations for Winter Academy #2 (Jan-Feb) will open at a time in the near future.
     

 

Place: Hyslop Sports Center (UND).
Note: Regarding parking at the Hyslop, UND has open parking nights (4pm-7am) and weekends. This means that you will be able to park in the spots on the East side of the Hyslop (except for 24/7 reserved and disability spaces).


Dates:

WINTER ACADEMY #1:  Sunday, November 3 through Friday, December 13
(depending on the days you sign up for). 
No sessions will be held over the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend (Friday, November 29 and Sunday, December 1).

WINTER ACADEMY #2: TBA

Cost:
$50 per session.  $10 discount for each session beyond the initial session.
I.e: 1 session = $50, 2 sessions = $90, 3 sessions = $130, 4 sessions = $170, 5 sessions = $210.
For example: A U10 girl signs up for Sundays at 3, Mondays at 5, the Goal Keeper Clinic on Wednesdays, and Fridays at 5.  Total price: $170.
This is for Winter Academy #1 (Nov-Dec).  Winter Academy #2 and each Futsal Tournament (for those interested) will be additional registrations.
