General Information

Q. What is Gilbert Youth Soccer Association's (GYSA) 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 recognize 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.

  • 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.
  • If a player is currently registered and has a player pass with a club team, they are prohibited from playing in any and all games with GYSA.
  • 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. What can I do to help out?
A. GYSA is a volunteer organization, so you can VOLUNTEER! Youth sports leagues cannot exist without assistance from parents and GYSA is no exception!

GYSA needs volunteers, we encourage anyone who has the time to volunteer. Please mark your child's registration form with the position for which you're able to volunteer. We have roles that require minimal time to very time intensive roles.

Thank you in advance to all our volunteers!
