December 3rd, 2019, Waltham, MA; The Fall season officially drew to a close for all of our age groups following the Thanksgiving Invitational and the Thanksgiving Showcase events.
The GPS Thanksgiving Invitational took place the weekend prior to Thanksgiving and saw both Boys and Girls teams aged U9-U12 compete. Over 195 teams participated in the Invitational event from a variety of clubs from across New England. GPS was represented at the event by not only GPS MA and its partner clubs but by GPS teams from New York, New Hampshire, Maine and Rhode Island.
The U13-U19 age groups had the chance to work off their holiday meals just this past weekend with the GPS Thanksgiving Showcase kicking off on Friday afternoon.
This event was held at a variety of locations throughout Massachusetts and saw clubs from as far as Canada travel to compete. The GPS Thanksgiving Showcase saw over 400 teams take the field in front of over 150 college coaches representing programs from D1 to D3.
The GPS Thanksgiving events mark the end of the Fall season for a large portion of our player base in Massachusetts but our winter programs will pick back up in the New Year with the GPS Futsal League.
