IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to avoid waste and extra cost, our policy is that ALL UNIFORMS be recycled and returned to the coaches at the end of the season.

We appreciate your cooperation in recycling for the program's use and savings.
GSL Church Coaches are Volunteer Parent Coaches. This is the traditional format for recreational leagues. Efforts are made to equip coaches with knowledge and assistance to ensure good coaching.
To ensure your child's safety, ALL GSL Coaches are REQUIRED to complete an online "Safeguarding God's Children" training course, be fingerprinted, have a background check and complete a coaches application.
