Many players have contact us about losing their uniforms, cleats or shinguards in the flood. Gulf Coast Soccer is a process by which people can donate soccer uniforms or supplies for those that need assistance getting a replacement.  

  • Do you have an old Recreational or Select Uniform or a Practice Jersey you can no longer wear and you could donate?
  • Do you have soccer cleats or shin guards you have outgrown?

If you have these items and are willing to donate them, or if you are in need of one of these items, please send an email to Candace Moore at cThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

After careful consideration and consulting our neighboring clubs, it has been decided that re-scheduling opening day for Saturday September 23rd would provide those families that were severely impacted by the flood a little more time to get their lives and homes in order. In addition, some other clubs that we partner with for mixed club leagues are not ready yet to host games due to damage at their respective complexes. Our belief is that the extra week will allow a more orderly start-up for the season and be more beneficial for everyone in the long run. We appreciate every ones understanding and consideration during this difficult time and getting things back to normal. See season details below...  

  • All all Micro, Recreational, Academy and Select Division 2 (U5-U19) that play in the local SYSA league or in our GCYSC in-house league will officially begin on September 23rd. The season will be 9 games in 8-weeks. The schedule is being updated, and will be released by Tuesday September 19th.      
  • If anyone needs to purchase a new uniform or uniform pieces as a result of the flood, please email Candace at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  • If anyone lost their jersey, cleats, or shinguards in the storm and needs help getting a replacement, please email Candace at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  • If anyone has jerseys, cleats or shin guards they have outgrown and they wish to donate to flood victims, please send an email to Candace at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  • Just a heads up! If we have additional rainouts or cancellations, it may require a Sunday afternoon make up day.

Due to Hurricane Harvey delaying the start of the season, Gulf Coast Soccer is rescheduling our Fall BBQ Sale Fundraiser for Saturday October 21st. 

Gulf Coast Soccer is excited to kickoff Fall BBQ Link Sale Fundraiser! As most of you know we suffered several break-ins this year and are now faced with replacing field maintenance equipment (i.e. mowers, weed eaters, utility cart, etc.). This fall's fundraiser will go toward replacing the stolen equipment and other repairs needed around the complex.

We are asking each player/family to sell 10 tickets (@ $5 each) or they may buy-out of the fundraiser for $25 if they wish. Each meal ticket is good for a link on a bun, chips, and a drink to be picked up on Saturday, October 21st at the soccer complex or at our offsite location at Action Restoration across Twin City Hwy from the complex for those just picking up or not attending a game.  

If you have not picked up your teams' tickets yet, please contact AnnMarie Wood to make arrangements to pick them up at the complex. Please pick these up ASAP as money and any unsold tickets are due on Saturday September 30th.
