Gaston Youth Sports


You may see events that you have not seen before.  Gaston Youth Sports is encouraging all families to be more involved this year.  Too often the responsibilities and organizing of the game fall on only a few shoulders instead of everyone sharing the load.  We are also attempting to streamline information and be more organized.  If you have any questions or concerns you may always contact Alex Fern.  Here are a few of the updates you may come across:
  • We will be having a Field Clean Up Day
  • Each team is expected to hold one fundraiser per season
  • Each family is expected to volunteer at least 2 hours time per season; if a volunteer position is not chosen a $35 non-volunteer fee will be assessed.  Volunteering doesn't have to be done by the parent.  Anyone can participate on behalf of that child-an older sibling, a grandparent, a family friend, etc.
  • Waivers will need to be completed by each teams Head Coach for those who do not live in Gaston
  • We would like to remind all participants  to provide a sports environment for the kids that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol.  Please refrain from their use at all youth sports events.  Remember that you are a role model for children and the game is for them and not adults, so be positive and have fun.
  • Browse the website.  There is a lot of useful information about upcoming events, grant writing, preparing for college, sports camps and trainers, and more. The website will also have a home page for your team.

Respecting Our Coaches

Remember that you have entrusted your child to their coach in playing their sport.  Please teach your child how to be responsible and respectful by being an example.
