The YSI@GSA Recreational Program

YSI@GSA is a COED recreational soccer program for players ages 4 through 17.

Run by program founder Sandi Rivera since 1974, YSI@GSA is the largest and fastest growing youth co-ed recreational soccer program in the area!

Under the umbrella of Gainesville Soccer Alliance, the YSI@GSA program strives to have a positive impact on all of it’s players, in soccer and beyond!

Program Mission Statement

As the longest-running, most popular recreational soccer program in north central Florida, YSI@GSA creates a structure in which kids of any soccer experience can participate on a team to learn skills, sportsmanship, teamwork, personal development, play in games and most of all…have FUN! Our hope for each player is they not only grow as a person, but also develop a passion for the game that provides him or her with a lifetime of playing, watching and loving soccer.

Season Overview

We use parent/volunteer coaches in our YSI@GSA program. These coaches will set their own practice times at specified locations around Gainesville. All games will be held at GSA’s Jonesville Soccer Park on weekends (mostly Saturdays).

Occasionally, out-of-town teams who are interested in participating are added to our game schedules.

Practice/Game Days

Practice days, times, and locations will vary for our YSI@GSA teams. We utilize only volunteer coaches, and the practice schedules will be set by them.

Games this spring will all be at Jonesville Soccer Park, on April 15, 16, 22, 29, and 30, and May 6, 13, 20, and 21.
