What is the Select Program?

The Select Program provides a more competitive environment for house league players.  

What is the extra time commitment?

In addition to playing on a regular GMSA team, girls who play in the Select program will play with a different group of teammates. Select team will usually meet (practice) once per week. Practices and games for Select Teams will be in addition to the player's normal practices and games for their house league season teams. House league must take priority.

Who is eligible to participate in the Select Program?

The program is only available for girls in U11 Mite to U15 Novice.  All girls in these age groups are eligible for consideration, though not all players are guaranteed to be selected for a team. Players can't "play down" out of their age group in Select.

Girls that want to participate on a Select Team are only eligible if they are registered players in GMSA.

How are teams selected for the Select Program?

Players will be considered based on a combination of feedback from coaches from previous seasons and observations from the "Select" workouts, player clinics, and player evaluations. It is possible that not all interested players will be chosen for a Select Team.
