Gold Country United Comp Soccer The Basics

Post date: Aug 29, 2012 1:50:40 AM

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).

The GCU teams typically play league games on Saturdays with games being within an hours drive of the Sacramento area. Obviously, there are exceptions to this such as home games, tournaments, etc.. Teams are matched by age group and ability level via an annual "seeding" tournament. Club teams play rain or shine.
