GPS PLAYER PATHWAY

The GPS Juniors Program teaches the fundamentals of soccer using a fun and energetic curriculum that has been tailored to work with 3-6 year olds. Our curriculum also facilitates the development of motor and coordination skills. 

All sessions are held in a fun and positive environment, where players are encouraged to play with a smile on their face.

The Early Development League (U7 & U8) is focused on player development by providing players the opportunity to express themselves in both practice and a game environment.

Players train once a week in technically focused sessions with a bi-weekly game jamboree against the other GPS Regional EDL locations.

The Junior Premier Program provides year round training for players aged U9 to U12. Our emphasis is player-centric with development the number one priority.

We focus on the technical, tactical, physical and psychological development of individual players on a pathway towards maximizing their full potential. Teams are regionally based and tiered by ability.

The Regional Premier Program at U13-U18  program provides year round opportunities U13/U14 while U15+ join up with GPS once they complete the High School season.

The Program is divided into tiers and players are selected onto teams based on ability, attitude, commitment to the game and what GPS think is best for the player’s development. 


In applicable states National Premier League (NPL) and Development Academy (DA) teams consist of the best players selected from GPS Regions within that state.  

Teams are formed at U12-U18 and train at a convenient central location. These teams compete at the highest levels both regionally and nationally.

The GPS National team program identifies players boys and girls from u13-u18 and is comprised of a training and game component that is specific for each age group.

Players are invited to attend GPS National Training Centers based on recommendations from coaches from where teams are formed to compete in some of the most Elite youth tournaments in the World.

The GPS Pre ID program is the first step in our Elite Player Pathway (EPP) and is aimed at players U8-U10. The program is designed to provide supplemental training and games to selected players based on performance, attitude and current stage of their development.

The program provides like minded competitive players the opportunity to train and compete outside of their current club responsibilities. The first step in our Elite Player Pathway (EPP) provides the perfect platform for players looking to maximize their development in their pursuit of excellence. 

As part of FC Bayern’s commitment to the US market, the club has put structures in place to coordinate FC Bayern Player ID program across the country. 

The FC Bayern ID program fits into the Elite Player Pathway at the U11 and U12 age groups. All FC Bayern ID programs are coached using a curriculum provided by FC Bayern Munich.

20+ players have been identified throughout the course of the partnership to travel to Munich for a training week with FC Bayern Youth Academy teams.

The GPS  National Team Program aims to provide a professional soccer player experience to the Elite players within the GPS family.

Players successfully admitted to the program will receive the highest standard of coaching, experience additional training centers and travel as a team to prestigious tournaments and events.  Players are admitted to Regional Elite Training Centers, then selected to the GPS National Team Camp, from where the final GPS National Team roster is determined.

As the development of our players for the next level has always been a core focus at GPS, we've decided to offer our biggest opportunity yet. From Portugal to Greece, Spain to the UK, Malta to the US, we're giving players the opportunity to create and fulfill their dreams at our soccer academies. Each country has their own style, and whether it be Spain's Tiki-Taka or the UK's No-Nonsense, you'll be exposed to these styles and develop into a more complete player because of it.

Stay, learn, and compete with and against top international players for your chance to become your country's next rising talent.

GPS RHODE ISLAND FUTSAL CLUB

GPS Rhode Island is proud to offer Boys aged between 2010 - 2005 and Girls aged between 2009 - 2006 the opportunity to participate in our new futsal club.

Futsal has continued to raise its standards within the USA since the sport was first introduced in the 1980s. However it has not had as dramatic of a rise as it has had over the past 5 years. Already a leader is youth soccer, GPS first promoted Futsal in 2012 with the introduction of the GPS Futsal League. Since then, GPS has been at the forefront of Futsal development with continued growth of their players playing the sport in both the GPS Futsal League and National Youth Futsal Championships throughout the winter months.

This program will run throughout November 2018 - March 2019 and is open to current GPS and non-GPS members.
