By design, GGFC will neither look nor feel like any other club. Proven successful, our process and methods
have been refined by years of cumulative soccer experience.
Through soccer, GGFC empowers children with social and technical skills that will grow with them from their
formative years through adolescence and beyond.
GGFC has customized programs to provide the highest quality training for Recreational, Developmental, and
GGFC has an experienced, enthusiastic, professionally licensed coaching staff dedicated to inspire
confidence, team building, and sportsmanship.
The GGFC Culture – Futbol Formativo
Director of the Developmental Program, Coach Jose Goicochea, reaches into his Latin American background
when he adopts the word ‘formativo’ as the description of our Program. Formativo translates loosely
between “training” and “education.”
The distinction about the term ‘formative’ versus the more prevalently used terms “development” is that
development implies that there is an inherent potential and trainers build up on that.
“Formativo” implies that any child can be shaped with the right support on technical, emotional, mental and
physical aspect to enjoy the game and that “just let them play soccer” is just that.
No one can teach ‘passion’ or ‘heart’, but when a player is taught how to acquire skill and proficiency, the
game is fun. It is “just let them play soccer but with a purpose”.
GGFC – For the Players
Players are organized by age group and then by relative skill development. As individual progress ebbs and
flows, each child will have the opportunity to train and practice at the appropriate level within their age
group twice weekly.
For players in our Travel Program, we will also provide an additional Technical Skills Training and separate
Goalkeeper training every week free of charge to players looking to solidify or enhance specific skills and
The optional third practice, Technical Skills Training, is offered to players in higher level of competition for
more game related preparation and for less advanced players for working on fundamentals to develop
coordination, touch, dexterity and technical skills.
GGFC – For the Parents
GGFC expects parents to work in partnership with the coaches to create an environment where it is all
about freeing the kids have fun, play, compete and learn.
GGFC is a volunteer-run organization. Working together, we will nurture a positive, passionate, joyous
environment respectful to our children, coaches, families, and of course the game.
