Fall Registration is OPEN!

Registration for the GSA Fall 2018 Season is finally open! We've got all of our technical issues sorted out (we think) and can finally allow everyone to register. However, before we turn you loose we a few items to make you aware of:

  1. When you click below to register, you will be taken to a new website, gahanna.osysalive.com. You will go here to register yourself, your players, and if you are a coach, sign up to coach as well.

  2. You'll have to create new accounts. We realize this is tedious, but it's not something we were able to avoid. (More on why below)

  3. ALL registrations must be online going forward. You can still register and pay in person by cash, check, or charge at one of our registration events, but we will simply be filling out the forms on the computer.

I can't seem to register on the new site. How can I get help?
If you need a hand with registration, come in to one of our open registration events! We will be having registration at Headley Park (1031 Challis Springs Drive, Gahanna, OH 43230) at the following days and times:

  • Saturday, June 23rd from 10am to 2pm
  • Thursday, June 28th from 6pm to 9pm
  • Saturday, July 7th from 10am to 2pm

Why is GSA moving registration to a new site?
In short, we didn't have much of a choice. Due to mandates from FIFA, US Soccer, US Youth Soccer, and our state affiliate, Ohio South Youth Soccer, we must enter all of our player information into a new system known as US Soccer Connect. Our data goes to Ohio South, which goes on to US Youth, and so on; with each layer getting smaller amounts of your information. For example, no one but GSA will ever see your child's birth certificate. No one beyond Ohio South will see any state-required forms such as Lindsay's Law.

Could we have kept the current website and still sent data onward?
Yes and no. We could have used this site for registration and sent all data directly to US Soccer Connect, bypassing Ohio South and US Youth, but we still would have had to enter all player and parent information into Ohio South's system...by hand...with you in our presence. This would require a tremendous amount of time and effort from our staff and all the GSA members so we chose not to go that route.

Why do you have to create a new account?
Unfortunately, there is no way for use to import any user data into the new system from our current one. We lobbied hard to get this feature added to the new system, but it was rejected.

Everything is online now?
Yes, everything is online now. The paper forms are now a thing of the past. If you do not have a computer at home to do registration, or you find that registering using your phone is less than ideal, you can still register in person at one of our open registration events. We'll have several computers on hand and people to help you with registration.

How do I pay for registration?
You have all the same options to pay as before. You can pay online with a credit card at the time of registration, mail us a check, or come in to one of the registration events and pay with cash, check, or charge.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact the league registrar at [email protected].
