GUSA 5v5 Spring Classic

GUSA 5v5 Spring Classic Logo The Greece United Soccer Academy will be hosting its first annual 5 v 5 soccer tournament this coming spring (GUSA 5 v 5 Spring Classic). This 1 - day tournament will be capped at 16 teams for each age level and we will be running 4 fields at one time, so make sure to register soon!

A unique competitive opportunity for players in elementary, middle and high school. Each team should register 4 field players and a goalkeeper. Games are 15 minutes long and played on mid-sized fields (40 x 30 yds) with regulation sized goals.

The tournament will be offered to boys and girls over three different weekends in June. We are excited about the format, which consists of small-sided, up tempo games. This should provide teams lots of opportunities for goals in a fast paced, offensively focused tournament. All registered teams are guaranteed 7 (15 minute) games. For teams that qualify, a single-elimination round will determine champions in each bracket. Please refer to the flyer included with this letter for all information regarding this tournament.

Very cost friendly. At $20 per player ($100 for team of 5, $120 for team of 6), your kids will get a minimum of 7 games (15 minutes each) plus single elimination tournament if you qualify.

More Info

Super competitive. Hosted by GUSA, we are encouraging the best of the best school and club teams and players to participate to become the 2012 Spring Classic Champions.

Quick and authentic offense: Using the large goals on the smaller field will encourage a lot of offense, plenty of great shots, combination play in the box and finishing around the goal. Improve your skills around the net....turn your strikers and midfield into scoring machines.

Defending around the goal: Improve your marking and 1 v 1 / 2 v 2 defending skills.

Goalie work: Every goalie in this tournament will get their share of work in the net, and can even improve their abilities with the ball at their feet....should they leave the net from time to time to get in the attack.

Fun: Sign up with your teammates from school, from your club teams, or maybe friends you play with on the weekends!

The Greece United Soccer Academy was created with the goal of increasing the confidence and skill level of players, as well as focusing on the cognitive and psychosocial aspects of soccer. We truly believe that all players can improve in the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the game, regardless of current experience or skill level.

We are looking to grow the game of soccer throughout the Rochester community, through elite instruction from highly qualified coaches, player assistants, and a challenging coaching curriculum that is based on the recently released US Soccer Coaching Curriculum from April 2011. We strive to develop the "complete" soccer player.

We will be offering three different events this year: the aformentioned GUSA 5V5 Spring Classic Tournament, A Soccer Skills and Tactical Camp at the end of June, and a High School Conditioning Camp (specifically designed for soccer players in 9th – 12th grade) in early August.
