Forms -

Open and Print the Following:

A tentative list of expected coaches is here. Coaches if you are planning to coach but are not on it, please  Remember, this list is entirely preliminary, subject to change, and in no way final or guaranteed!  The places and times are especially preliminary and subject to change [But hopefully it's helpful]

* Hard copies of these forms will be available at all registration events. Print and fill them out in advance to save yourself time at the registration. 

1. Completed registration form signed by a parent or guardian (2 copies please)
2. One 1”x1” current photo of the child for I.D. card (only required for U10 and older)
3. A copy of official birth certificate or passport.**   (New/non-returning players only), 
4. Registration fee (check or cash).      

** - Hospital/Church issued birth certificates (ones w/ imprints of little feet) are NOT official records and cannot be used.  Official birth certificates are typically titled "Certificate of Live Birth" issued by the County in which your child was born.
Costs: Registration (on/before 5/31):  $95 per player 
Registration (after 5/31):  $130 per player
Family discount for 3+ players

All paid registrations includes a free team picture. 


Mandatory: GCYSL blue/white reversible jersey**,  blue or black shorts, shin guards and long black socks that cover shin guards.  Cost is $20

Optional: Soccer cleats.

** Jerseys are available at registration events or through the GCYSL office (hours vary and are limited).  Cost is $20 (which is our cost), and are the only part of the uniform we sell directly. All other items are available at any sporting goods store such as Big 5, Sports Authority or Samba Soccer

Soccer Balls:  We will be selling soccer balls at registration for $9 which is (again, our cost and) cheaper than any retail merchant. While it is not required that you own one, time on the ball is key in becoming a better player, which means having more fun, so having a ball of your own is a good thing. 

Season: Practices will begin in August (see Season Handout).  Games will be on Saturdays from late August through November. No games on Labor Day. Rained-out games are not made up.

Finding Your Age Group

Your "soccer age" may not exactly match your age at the time you are playing games. The ages for the year are based on your child's age on Aug 1.  Refer to the Age Matrix and please note that Recreation Level soccer uses two-year age groupings, e.g.: U6, U8, U10, U12, U14, and U16. If your childs exact age is not one listed, they will need to move up one. e.g. a player listed that is U11 would play in the U12 group in Gold Country. ("U" is "under", so if they are under 12 on Aug 1, then they are U12, and so on).
