The YSI@GSA Recreational Program

YSI@GSA is a COED recreational soccer program for players ages 4 through 16.

Run by program founder Sandi Rivera since 1976, YSI@GSA 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.
