Welcome to the Gorham Youth Soccer Association!


GYSA Updates - 8/14/14 

Thursday Challenger Update

In order to protect our soaked fields, camp for U9 - U10 players will again be indoors at
Gorham Sports Center on Thursday.  
All other age groups will be at their normal location.

About GYSA:

Gorham Youth Soccer Association (GYSA) travel program provides Gorham youth with a competitive 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.

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.
