Letter from the Director

PARENTS & PLAYERS

GUSC would like to welcome you to another exciting season of recreation soccer. As the years pass on, we have continued to create a culture that furthers the education and the enjoyment of the number one youth sport in the United States. 

Soccer is not only a chance for your children to be active, but at the same time, they learn important values regarding teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect. We here at Gaston United strive to make recreation an amazing experience with a seamless transition for those players that want to progress to a more competitive program. 

REGISTRATION

You have the option to pay either for one season or both (fall & winter) seasons. Registrations will primarily take place online; however, if you are having any difficulties, please contact Jenny Holder, our recreation director, for assistance. Registration is currently open, the deadline for the Fall Season is August 15th, those registering before August 1st receive an early bird special. 

PARENT, COACH & VOLUNTEER EDUCATION

Each age group will have a different set of rules, so it is important for parents, coaches, and volunteers to truly understand how their children will be affected by US Soccer Rules & League Rules. Our goal is to create a safe and fun environment for kids to participate in. Major points we will be covering include topics such as the 'heading" ban, how the birth year affects your child, and the transition between Recreation and Youth Academy soccer.

If you are open to becoming a volunteer or coach, we would love to hear from you. Please reach out to our Recreation Directors for more information as well as positions we are attempting to fill.
