About GYSA:

Since 1995, the Gorham Youth Soccer Association (GYSA) travel program has provided Gorham youth with a competitive soccer playing environment. Our mission is to develop well balanced successful individuals in a competitive team environment through instruction of the technical, tactical, physical and psychological aspects of soccer. We do this with an exceptional coaching staff and well organized club supporting our players. In the Fall of 2014, 285 GYSA players participated on our 21 travel teams, making GYSA one of the largest travel soccer clubs in the state.

Travel Soccer Commitment:

The season starts the 1st week of August with games starting the last weekend in August.  A typical week would include two practices during the week and games on Saturday, Sunday, or both days.  All players are expected to attend all practices and games.  The season ends in late October or early November.  The Gorham Travel Soccer program has helped to develop outstanding varsity and college soccer players.  However, travel soccer requires a fairly heavy time and physical commitment for the players and their parents.  We have exceptional municipal recreation programs and school programs for those who do not want the extra commitment.
