GOLD COUNTRY UNITED - COMP Soccer
Gold Country United (GCU) is our "Comp" soccer program and is intended for players between the ages of 8-18 who are looking for a higher level of coaching and competition. Children must attend mandatory try-outs which are usually held in spring each year (check the Announcements section of the home page for dates).
GCU comp teams play in the Norcal Premier Soccer League and are organized in divisions based on skill level (Bronze, Silver, Gold) with other teams generally in and around a 60 mile radius of the Sacramento area. In a standards 10 game season, five games would be played away and five would be on our home field of Lyman Gilmore or Mautino Field. Comp teams play on Saturdays or Sundays and games are usually rain or shine. Teams may decide to play in 1-3 tournaments a year based on coach and player support.
