06/17/2021 Update: This 2021 Fall season will be the inaugural season for GAASA as a OSA (Ohio Soccer Association) member league. GAASA is classified as a Grassroots Travel League, and as a part of this we adopted the following changes for the League to realign our rules with the Grassroots Standards and US Soccer Player Development Initiatives.

Revised Maximum rosters sizes:

7v7 = 12 (U9/U10)

9v9 = 16 (U11/U12)

11v11 = 18 (U13-U15)

11v11 = 22 (U16-U19)

Write-in guest players are no longer permitted.  All Guest players are to be added to the rosters in Demosphere prior to printing a gameday roster.  Maximum guests: 3 for 7v7, 4 for 9v9, 5 for 11v11 (this rule did not change).  Total gameday roster size cannot exceed max roster size, inclusive of guest players and eligible players from main roster.  A color official roster with photographs of all players is required at all games and an official gameday roster. Should a team violate the maximum guest player rule, or exceed the roster limitations, the game will be reported as a forfeit.

-2022-23 annual player fee $16 for all travel grassroots ages. 

-Coach fee $0 (background check / safety requirements / coaching licenses, are to be paid by club/coach separately). 

-New spring grassroots players pay $16

-Team fees are paid in both fall & spring season.  

Team fee = $80, U9-U10 

Team fee = $90, U11-U12

Team fee = $100, U13-U15

Team fee = $110, U16-U19

Above pricing will be for a GAASA Grassroots Travel 2022-23 seasonal year (Fall and Spring), which will be valid for in-league play only. Teams wishing to play in tournaments outside of GAASA, must upgrade to the OSA Competitive player pass, for an additional $14 / player fee (or $30 per player, inclusive of all players on the team). Upgrade can be made in either fall or spring season and will not be prorated for a partial seasonal year.  HS teams organized by clubs: fees apply as listed above.  HS teams organized by GAASA: Individual player fees will be $125/player to cover a uniform, field rental fees, referee fees, player insurance (recreational player pass), and team fees.

Register Recreational players U4-U8 with GAASA at $10 per player. Registration is for player insurance only and for an ability to guest play age-appropriate recreational players (U7/8) onto GAASA Grassroots Travel Teams. Recreational players, age verification and photo verification shall be by the state association, and club is responsible to manage all Club run Recreational game schedules (outside of GAASA).
