Recreation soccer is intended to be an affordable opportunity that provides an opportunity to develop athleticism, sportsmanship, and team building in our community’s youth. This program is run entirely by volunteers. Teams will be led by coaches that will have variable experience. Practices are highly encouraged, but a minimum number of practices is not required; practices are at the discretion of the coach. Gaylord Soccer League provides teaching aides to all volunteer coaches.
The Recreational program is a fall soccer league. All games are played at the Gaylord Soccer Complex on the corner of North Ohio and Fairview.

Make up games are scheduled between coaches, and it is their responsibility to schedule a field and referees, if necessary. Make up games cannot be scheduled during regularly scheduled game times unless a field is available and verified with the registrar.
Recreational Program Tournament
At the discretion of the GSL Board of Directors a tournament (date/time TBD) will be held for all recreation U10 and older teams providing there are enough teams in each age/gender division to support a bracket. This tournament is run in similar fashion to many MSYSA sponsored events and will include awards.
