GSA Academy

GSA’s Academy, the most popular and advanced recreational youth soccer league in the area, is back and ready for the Spring 2018 Season! The GSA Academy is focused on players looking for a higher level of training, and who aspire to one day be a part of our Competitive/Travel soccer program.

GSA Developmental Academy

We will also have a three-week Advanced Academy program at the end of the season, for selected players that show exceptional promise (more information on this will be provided after training starts in February).

This will be advanced recreational training. We will expect our players to arrive early for training in full soccer gear ready to practice. Every player should bring water and a size 4 ball.

GSA’s purpose is to promote the advancement of competitive youth soccer in the greater Gainesville area. This shall be achieved through the development and retention of outstanding soccer players using licensed coaches, professional instruction, and a commitment to sportsmanship, teamwork, and personal development. Soccer will be the basis for teaching honor, integrity, cooperation, commitment and good will through victory and defeat. Finally it is our hope that each player develops a passion for the game that provides him or her with a lifetime of playing, watching and loving soccer.

We are thrilled to have you as part of our GSA soccer family and we’re very excited about the coming season!

I know it’s going to be a great Fall Academy season!

Thank you,
