Thanks to all of our players, coaches, parents and club volunteers for all you’ve done to make 2017 a successful season! We also want to thank everyone for supporting our “Stuff-A-Truck” Food Drive to benefit the Gorham Food Pantry.  As a club, we collected 506 pounds of food and other non-perishable items.  Thanks to everyone for the support of our club and the Gorham community!  See you all next season!!!

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.
