GSL Church Fairness Policy on Practice Attendance and Game Playing Time

Registration Fee for sports is between $60 - $121. The registration fee covers: league fees, photos, non-volunteer coaches, administration costs, equipment/supplies, trophies, uniforms, port-A-potty at MCS Field, field space rental, field clean-up and basketball door security, etc.

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. Registration fees cover uniform replacements for the program.  At present, participants do not buy the uniform, with the exception of hats and socks in baseball/softball/t-ball. We appreciate your cooperation in recycling for the program's use and savings.

Coaches:

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.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to provide: development of players through teaching sport fundamentals, athletic competition in a Christ-centered environment, teaching sportsmanship through meaningful playing time, coaching leadership, developing deeper friendships with players, parents and coaches and valuing the safety and well-being of all sports participants.
