SEASON overview

academy tryouts

U7 (2016) to High School (2006)


We hold our large yearly tryouts to select teams for league and some tournament play. Players are guaranteed a roster spot for November – July at tryouts.


A supplemental tryout is held to fill roster spots. In summer months we might evaluate other players who might want to join our program for the months of June and July. Returning players do not need to attend this tryout.


Offers will be sent to the email address used when registering for tryouts on or before September 17. Offers are valid for 24 hours and must be accepted on the GSS website with a deposit.


There will be a Zoom meeting at the beginning of the season for Q&A. Time TBD.


GSF players may not play for another futsal club/team unless given the express consent from a GSF director. No GSS player can play for another futsal club/team against another GSF team in a tournament.


Teams will roster approximately 7 - 9 players.


Teams are chosen by the tier listed below.
• GSF Gold - 1st
• GSF Green - 2nd
• GSF Black - 3rd


We would like at least one parent volunteer to be a Team Admin for each team. Please email Admin@getsharpsoccer.com if you’re interested.

skill training program

All Get Sharp Academy Players will have one session of skill training per week. Our proven skill training curriculum was developed by our GSF staff. Over the years we have finetuned this program to yield the highest success for players. Players will learn seven new moves during each skill training session and will get over a thousand touches on the ball in a single session. We put a huge emphasis on these sessions. At the highest level of play, the best futsal players can beat their opponent 1 on 1.


This training makes up the Academy program for our highest level of play. Players who have not made an Academy team can choose to partake in our skill training program to develop their skill to the level of our Academy Program.
