The kit costs $40 for returning players, with maroon and gray shirts ($16 each), shorts ($6 each) and socks ($3 per pair) also for sale separately. Jackets for new and returning players cost $60 and backpacks $28. Please bring a check or cash as we are not able to take a credit card on-site. We look forward to seeing you there!
GYSA State Champions!

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.
