The Gettysburg Youth Soccer Club (GYSC) provides soccer training and playing opportunities for both boys and girls in the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas of south central Pennsylvania. The GYSC coaching staff includes professional trainers as well as qualified non-professional coaches – all with the aim towards providing amazing opportunities for kids to enjoy the “beautiful game.”
GYSC provides teams for both boys and girls from U9 through U19.
In some situations, players may play up an age group, but players cannot play down an age group. The GYSC Board and the GYSC Technical Director will determine whether a player should play up an age group.
We do offer developmental player positions for players who are interested in joining a team if there are currently no roster spots available.
GYSC teams play in the Central Pennsylvania Youth Soccer League (CPYSL). Each season, half the games are played in Gettysburg and the other half are played around south central Pennsylvania – usually within 45 – 60 minutes of Gettysburg. Both the fall and spring seasons include 8 CPYSL games.
Each GYSC team participates both in our Battlefield Blast tournament held in August and the Blue Gray Cup in May. Additional tournaments may be played on a team-by-team basis.
GYSC teams train at Oakside Park, Gettysburg Senior High School and Straban Township Park located in Gettysburg. Other locations around Gettysburg, PA may also be used. In the Winter, GYSC uses indoor facilities in Gettysburg and Mount St. Mary's to train.
U9 – U19 home games are played in Gettysburg and the surrounding areas.
GYSC operates with a volunteer parent force. Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Committee and Board of Directors are mostly all parents of our players. We do occasionally recruit experienced soccer coaches as our teams progress in skill and level of play. Please consider volunteering soon.
