April 17th, Waltham, MA, 2019; Global Premier Soccer (GPS) is excited to announce additions to the Girls Massachusetts Elite pathway to begin season 2019/20.
At the top of the pyramid will remain the GPS MA Elite Red teams, made up of the highest level players from throughout the GPS regions. Elite Red teams are a founder member of the Girls NPL and retain a spot in the A bracket. Underneath this tier, the program will split into two geographic regions; GPS Eastern MA and GPS Southern MA which will sit above the GPS Regional team program and also aim to compete in the NPL Divisions through the pathway created by the New England Premiership.
Beginning this fall, GPS MA Elite White teams will be renamed as GPS Eastern MA and continue to train in the Greater Boston area and follow the same competitive calendar. GPS Southern MA teams will be a new addition to the program based out of Weymouth and Taunton.
The continued growth of the girls program in these locations and partnership with GPS Galway has created an opportunity to expand the reach of the Elite program to provide a more convenient option for families in the South Shore, South Coast and Cape Cod.
The new GPS Southern MA girls teams will be formed at the 2006, 2007 & 2008 age groups and will follow the GPS Elite program structure of three training sessions per week and participation in national tournament events such as the NCFC Showcase, Jefferson Cup and US Club Soccer Regional events with a pathway to Nationals. The new structure and name changes will only affect the Girls program at these age groups. At all other age groups and genders, the existing MA Elite Red and MA Elite White structures will remain.
There will be specific tryouts for the Southern MA teams, open to players who do not wish to be considered to the MA Elite Red teams. Additionally, there will be an ID session held for 2007 girls only, next month. Full details below:
