An informational email went out to all listed coaches and managers, club admins, and POCs. That information is also posted here.
The Week 1 schedule is available from the Schedules page. We had numerous changes to the schedule per club requests. Be sure all teams know to check for updates.
While GotSport has returned the season schedule now needs to be configured in the system. It is not a matter of just posting. GCF uses GotSport as its scheduling software.
If you do not see a match card available in GotSport by gameday, use the generic version provided. Have copies of your roster available for check-in.

Spring Registration is nearing the deadline of Feb 4. Please enter teams now and do not wait until the end date, this will greatly improve the timing of the schedule release.
Registration info here and on the Club Resources page.
Senior Division: Schedules are posted. Opening weekend is 8/27-28.
Junior Division: Schedules for the junior divisions will be posted by the end of this weekend (8/27-28). Opening weekend for 9U-14U teams is September 10/11. Once the schedules are posted, clubs and coaches will have 24 hours to review via your GotSport account and negotiate obvious reschedules before the schedule is released publicly. (This gives clubs/coaches a window to make alterations before their parents officially etch it in stone.)
Seeing TBD for location: Club assignors are responsible for entering the field and start times for all home matches. If your Home match is not assigned please contact your Scheduler to have this completed.
Registrars, be sure to check the Club Resources page for GCF instructions and links to GotSport training.
The annual referee checklist is located on the "Referee" page of the website. It is a good thing to make a copy of and keep it with you so you can keep up to date with all the necessary training and certifications. New this year is a mandatory field training course that FLSRC is doing to help improve our referee knowledge with actual on-field training. Check it out! This is for all of our area referees.
