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

GFC Coaching Staff Mission

Our staff coaches are devoted to the holistic development of our young people. Our coaches align their individual goals with our organizational player development model. The younger age group coach is, first and foremost one who loves to work with young children and who possesses charisma and passion. Infectious enthusiasm is a strong asset here; since inspiring a passion and a love for the game is the number one priority for this age group. Playing and coaching soccer must be fun for both the players and the coach. This is not a job for anyone who regards it as a chore. We have a very diverse and well educated coaching staff, with a balanced mix of coaches with teaching, coaching, and playing experience. Our Coaches have local, regional, national, and international playing and coaching experience. Our coaches are US Soccer Federation certified, while also meeting all the Kentucky Youth Soccer minimum coaching standards. In addition to each team having a USSF certified travel team coach, we offer supplemental coaching for Goalkeepers, Injury Prevention and Speed and Strength coaching, position specific functional training, and a Technical Skills coach for our 4U-8U Footskillz Academy. Our program provides a niche for the beginner recreational player to the elite athlete.
