An integrated health system serving patients in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Idaho.
We have opened registration for the 2021 season.
We ask that you please register your child soon. You will have the option to pay in full or use a payment plan which allows you to cover the fee over 3 payments.
Last year we were able to refund a portion of our members fees for the 2020 COVID-19 hit season. At the time we mentioned that we anticipated getting credits from MYSA, AYSA and fields for Duluth that we would then apply to our fees in 2021. We are delighted that we are able to reduce player fees by $70 each player this year with the credits we have received.
When you take this in account and you add in our “sponsorship credit” that we give out every year we are able to make the player fees for this year very reasonable for all, despite seeing increases from our associations for 2021. Our U9 players will pay just $300, U10 – U12 comes to $470 and our League teams total is $540.
We are still waiting on information from the High Schools and MSHSL about any potential play offs before we confirm player assessment dates. We will likely be looking at the middle of October for these. The thought right now is to hold them outside at CSS. We will get more info out when we have it. In the past we have held an open kick around for our younger teams, U9 to U11, we will not be having these this year but we ask that you please register your child so we can form teams in a timely fashion.
With assessments throughout October we will be looking to announce teams around Thanksgiving. Like last year we will be looking to hold some Winter Skill sessions before our League teams start training come early February. All of this will happen inside at Proctor, as before.

It is crazy to think that back in March we had to shut down our season and here we are in mid August still not back to “normal”.
As I have said before we are delighted that we have been able to offer up the summer training program along with our newly expanded summer youth programs for our members.
These sessions were and continue to be a great success for the Club and our players who despite these uncertain times have improved greatly.
Looking forward we are excited to see all our players representing their high schools this Fall. Once schedules and plans are finalized from their end we will start to formalize what our Fall will look like in terms of player assessments, etc.
We are looking to have a budget meeting to determine player fees for the 2021 season. Obviously we are looking at what credits we can use towards these to keep Gitch an affordable option for all. The plan is to have fees set by mid September at which point we will open registration.
Player assessments will happen in October. At this point there are still several unknowns we need to take care of before we can announce dates and times.
We feel comfortable now saying we will once again be able to use Proctor from late January for our selected teams training as we did last year. As stated before we really believe this venue will prove to be a real separator for us as a Club to develop players in the area.
We wish all the players trying out for high school teams the very best and look forward to seeing them in action over the coming months.
Have a great fall!!
The Gitchi Gummi Soccer Club
