GAASA 2021 Update

GAASA Is one of the largest US Youth Soccer Leagues in the Ohio North area.  If you are looking to affiliate and participate in our League Please reach out to our League Registrar or President.  

To all GAASA League members, clubs, coaches, players, parents, referees and assignors:

03/31/21 Update:  For those clubs that are new to Demosphere and are looking to increase their knowledge on how to use the system, here is a website set up for all Ohio North member clubs and leagues with links to Demosphere trainings:  https://supportcenter.demosphere-secure.com/ohio-north-youth-soccer-members

03/014/2021 Update: The preliminary schedule will tentatively be uploaded Monday night. Our apologies but 3 clubs are still getting onboarded with Demosphere, and they should get finished Monday during the day.  Additional time has been added to the NC period to reschedule games.  Also for players that are in the HS league, there is no need to get Safesport Trained or apply for a Background Check.  This will take effect for the 2021-2022 season for all players 18 and older.   use this form to submit game change requests:  https://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/h42d083G9F

03/07/2021 Update: The preliminary schedule will be posted within the next few days, as we are still receiving requests for minor adjustments to the divisions. Clubs should be sure to verify that the all of their teams are synced to the 2021 spring season and that all coaches are assigned to teams and they have completed all safety compliance requirements.

02/14/2021 Update: Link for High School Players to register for the 2021 Spring Season on a GAASA organized team: https://greaterakronsa.demosphere-secure.com/_registration  Players will either be placed on a GAASA organized team or a nearby community team that is looking for HS players to round out their teams for compliance with OHSAA regulations (5 players maximum, per team from the same school, that were previously rostered on a HS soccer team.  Note HS seniors are excluded from this rule.)  Refer to the GAASA coaches manual and OHSAA regulations for further clarifications.  Cost per player is $125, plus any registration processing fees (Birthyear 2007 to 2002) or SafeSport / BC fees (Players age 18+).  If placed on a GAASA Team, the registration fee includes player insurance, team fees, field fees, referee fees, and a dry-fit jersey.  All players participating in the HS divisions must be currently enrolled in HS or in 8th grade and entering HS in the following season. 

01/18/2021 Update: Link for GAASA Clubs to Declare Teams for the 2021 Spring Season: https://elements.demosphere-secure.com/scripts/runisa.dll?M2:gp::74895+Elements/DisplayS+E+79824+App/+++100102393

12/30/2020 Update: The 2021 Spring Schedule was posted. 

The GAASA Board of Directors would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Holidays, and wishing everyone a Happy New Year.  Be on the lookout for emails from our Registrar for help on opening your Spring Registration for your Club.  We will also send an email invite for the President's Meeting.  All league meetings including the President's meeting will be held via ZOOM until further notice. I have included the Spring and Fall schedule below, As of now it is 95% accurate, but we reserve the right to shift the dates as needed to assist the League and all of our Clubs.  We have some great things planned for 2021.
