General Information

Q. What is Gilbert Youth Soccer Associations overall philosophy?
A. To provide each player the opportunity to play soccer in a supportive and rewarding environment that emphasizes fun, enjoyment and skill learning, at a level that fits the player's interest and ability. We also appreciate the benefit of participating in a team sport. We encourage a child's development of group skills by exposing them to relationship-building and problem-solving challenges in social situations.

Examples:
  • A youth player should not be kept in goal against his/her wishes just because he/she is the best keeper and the team needs him/her to win the game.
  • Coaches should not hold on to good players at a lower playing level just to help the team to win games. The better player should be allowed to move up to the next level in order to help him reach his potential, even if it means that the team he leaves behind will be weakened.
  • Every player must play 50% in each game, not left to sit on the bench for the entire game because the team must win.
  • Young players should not be pigeon-holed into one position when young. Players should be given the chance to play multiple positions and develop various skills to make each player a better overall player.

Q. Does GYSA offer any Summer Camps?
A. Yes. We partner with UK Soccer International camps each summer. Check back for dates in March.

Q. What can I do to help out?
A. GYSA is a volunteer organization, so you could VOLUNTEER! Youth sports leagues cannot exist without assistance from parents, and the Gilbert Youth Soccer Association is no exception.

There are many jobs that need to be done. GYSA needs volunteers to operate, we encourage everyone to volunteer to help make the programs operate. Please mark your child's registration form with the job you are able to volunteer for. We have roles that require minimal time to very time intensive roles.

Thank you in advance to all our volunteers.
