Gwinnett Soccer Association

Under 12

For players born in 202005 and 2006
** GSA has adopted the USYS calendar age group system for the 2016 season and beyond


These teams have two practices per week for one hour and one game per week for 8 weeks.  Games begin the first Saturday after Labor Day in the fall and the first Saturday in March during the spring season.  Practices begin two weeks prior to the first game of the season.

Most games will be played at the GSA Cole Road Complex, but depending on the number of GSA teams in the division, some play might be played at neighboring soccer associations in Gwinnett or Dekalb Counties. 

Under 12 teams expand to having 12 - 14 players to a team. Practice sessions are 60 min long.  Games are played in an 8 vs 8 format with a goalkeeper in the goal.

Teams are formed utilizing both assessments and player and coach requests in order to ensure as much parity as possible.   Players who participate in the fall season are returned to their teams in the spring season.

Teams are formed approximately two weeks before practices begin.  You will be sent a roster with your coaches contact information at that time.
