PRIOR to registering or emailing us with questions!  

If you have not previously registered, you will need to set up an account on this website. We are using Blue Sombrero's online registration service.  The service is free, except for credit card fees which the league is absorbing, due to support from Dick's Sporting Goods.  When you register you will receive 2 emails per season from Dick's Sporting Goods with coupons. If you prefer not to get the emails, there is an opt out option in the initial email from them.

Registration is $40 and the deadline is July 1st, 2018, after this date there will be limited registrations depending on spaces available and the fee will increase to $60.  If no spaces are available you will be placed on a waiting list.  Scholarships are available.  You will need to indicate "pay by check" on the payment page and then send an email request to infogbgsl@gmail.com for a scholarship.  We respectfully request you pay what you can afford, if anything.  Once a scholarship adjustment is made you can pay with a credit card or by mailing a check and you will receive a confirmation email.  Late registrations requesting scholarships must pay the late fee of $20 to be considered. 

Team placement will be emailed to parents about 2 weeks before the season starts.   

All 5 "regular" weekly Saturday morning games will be played at Calahan Park in Burlington.  We anticipate games beginning between 8 am and 12 pm; schedules will be posted on the website, typically a week before the first game of the season. The Jamboree, week 6, (October 13) in the AFTERNOON at Veterans Memorial Park in South Burlington.

Practices:  Practice times and locations are set by the volunteer coaches for each team. We cannot tell you in advance when practices will be.   Coaches will be responsible for finding practice field space.  Parents must to be willing to drive to where practices are held at the convenience of the volunteer coaches.  Kindergarten teams do not practice.

Girls must be enrolled in Kindergarten thru 6th grade to play (for 2018/19 school year).  If the player you are registering is not in the grade that corresponds to her age the system will default to the grade she could be in; if this is not the correct division, please email us at infogbgsl@gmail.com after you register to the default division and we can manually change the division.  This must be done by the July 1st deadline.

Equipment:  Team shirts and coordinating socks are provided.  Girls in Grades K through 4th grade will get a t-shirt; you need to specify the size when you register, options include youth or adult size XS through XL; girls in 5th and 6th grade will get a jersey, they are Women's sizes S through XL.  Please pay attention to the sizing when indicating a shirt size on the registration; we cannot reorder new shirts after the shirts are printed.   Cleats are optional. Girls must wear shin guards to play.  If it creates a financial hardship, please see a board member opening week as we have limited pairs available at no cost. No earrings or jewelry can be worn during play at games or practices. Earrings cannot be taped or covered, they must be taken out.  This is a Vermont Soccer Association rule, there are no exceptions. 

Lost and Found: found items are collected in a bin following the games; if you lose something you may find in the bin outside the shed.  Items are donated at the end of each season.   

Coaches:  All GBGSL Coaches are volunteers, mostly parents like you.  GBGSL is often in need of coaches.  Click on the Coaching link at the top of the page for more information including details about the clinic we are offering.  We do REQUIRE coaching forms and background checks. 

Sponsorship:  We need sponsors to keep our costs affordable and ask for your help in finding other businesses appropriate for youth sponsorship.  The name of the business will appear on the back of a team shirts or jerseys for the 2018 Fall Season. Additionally the business logo can be displayed on this website.  If the sponsor is a family with a child who is playing the cost is $100.  If it is an outside sponsor the fee is $150.  Sponsorship forms are due by July 1st as we require 8 weeks to order shirts.  

We need a few committed volunteers to serve on our board of directors.  With many hands no job is overwhelming.  Please email us at info@gbgsl.org if you would like more information about our board.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!  We do not have a phone number to contact us, please use email. 

We are also looking for a super organized person with a few hours to train with and ultimately replace our administrator.  There is a stipend for this position.  Please contact us for more information.
