Covid-19 Update
Dear GFC Family,

With the recommended closing of school districts to combat the spread of the Covid-19 Pandemic, and in conjunction with recommendations from our parent organizations, Kentucky Youth Soccer and US Youth Soccer, the Board of Directors at GFC has decided to cancel all club related activities effective immediately until April 6th. This plan coincides with local area school closings. Our current plan will see our competitive and recreational teams return to normal training on April 6th. We will continue to follow CDC, State, and Local Public Health Officials’ recommendations going forward and will reevaluate the situation as necessary. If the situation changes, and we can return to the field sooner, then we will update the club community accordingly. During this break our coaching staff will be hard at work on various professional development activities, as well as communicating with players about their individual development plans. As a club we have an important social responsibility to follow recommended public health guidelines to limit the spread of the virus to vulnerable members of our community. Let’s focus on taking care of our family members while being compassionate and supportive community members during this difficult time.Coaches and Team Managers, please share this communication with your teams.

Sincerely,
GFC Board of Directors
Khamisi Campbell -Director of Coaching
Chris Calulot -President
Colleen Gordon -Select Vice President
Dan Loring -Recreational Vice President
Jason Biddle -Secretary
Rebekah Haywood -Treasurer
Celeste Tilman -Event Coordinator

    The primary objective of the Recreational program is to enable players to learn the game of soccer in a fun and stimulating environment. The focus is on developing player foot skills and advancing strategies. The 10U (ages 8-10) league is an Inter-club league, meaning teams will play against other GFC teams. The 12U, 14U, and 19U leagues are organized by Lexington Youth Soccer Association meaning teams will play against teams from other area clubs.
