Who runs Gabriola Soccer Association (GSA)?
Since 1997 the GSA is run by parent volunteers. Thousands of children have passed through the GSA, along with many of their parents or others from the community who have an interest in soccer. Along with an executive consisting of a president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, other roles in the club are registrar, referee coordinator, equipment manager, communications/website coordinator and of course coaches for each team.
Do my children need to be in the Gabriola School to be able to participate in soccer?
Gabriola Elementary School has their own soccer program that they run as part of their curriculum. GSA is a separate entity and is open to any children wishing to play soccer that are able to attend practices on Gabriola.
What if I cant afford to have my child play soccer?
We have had families/participants successfully apply for funding through Canadian Tires Jumpstart program, and Kid Sport Canada programs. See front webpage at bottom for website addresses. If those attempts are unsuccessful please contact someone at GSA for help. We do not want to turn away any child wishing to play.
