Middle School and High School Rec Soccer

GCKA offers players in middle school (grades 6, 7, & 8) the option to play on a team that plays in the Middle School Soccer Association (MSSA). Players in high school (grades 9, 10, 11 & 12) play in the High School Soccer Association (HSSA). MSSA and HSSA are recreational leagues.
