Placement is made based on coach evaluations, registration numbers, and evaluation scores. Team placement may change from season to season.  GSA tries to place all those that register. GSA tries not to cut-players. Players are sorted by like ability teams: c1,c2,c3,c4,or c5.

There is a Player Placement Committee that meets to help create rosters: Pres, VP, Directors, DOC, & H.S. coaches.

TRAVEL EVALUATION: 
For Spring 2018 placement, the directors will rely on coach evaluations & past evaluation scores. Or the directors may personally invite specific groups or new players to a 'look-see' if more info is needed. If a player is coming from rec, we have scores and evaluations from the rec coaches and an evaluation may not be necessary at this time. You will be contacted if we need to take another peek.  

Travel Games: 4 home games and 4 away games. 
Games typically play within Akron/CLE areas on Saturday or Sundays

League Competition. Teams can be placed in: 
GAASA (Greater Akron League). www.GAASA.org
OHTSL (Ohio Travel Soccer League) www.OHTSL.com
STATE LEAGUE / Ohio North:  www.ohionorthsoccer.org


Q: What is the commitment level for travel? 

Team Practice two nights a week, Technical Training TBD, & a game on the weekend.

Q: Travel Distance? 

4 home games, 4 away games.
GSA competes against other towns, most local. Some can be up to an hour away. 

Q: How are travel teams grouped? 
Teams are formed with kids of like ability. Teams can be placed in 5 different divisions: c1,c2,c3,c4 or c5. C1 being the highest level of competition and c5 being a bit less competitive but a whole lot of fun!  Travel still maintains a fun child friendly atmosphere where all kids can succeed and have fun playing soccer.


Financial Aide Forms:

Coaches:
All Travel coaches and assistants need a u10/u12 coaching license. The date and location of these courses can be found on OYSAN's website (oysan.org) . The course takes a one weekend commitment. Usually, a new coach can coach one season before needing a license. GSA uses both parent coaches, professional coaches, and community coaches. We are always looking for additional coaches. If interested, please contact one of the  Travel Directors.
