Youth Fall Soccer Registration
A warm Gorge Soccer welcome to all returning and new players, parents and coaches.
The Gorge Online Registration system for the new fall season is open.
For further information on registrations, please refer to our Registration Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document - Registration FAQ Document
The most important thing is to register with the club AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Last season we had a large waiting list of players that we could not place on a team.
- Register early to ensure a spot for your player next season & save on your registration fee! Last season we had to implement a waitlist for some divisions. In some divisions the club does fill up and players can get waitlisted. Please make sure you register early.
- All players must be registered (payment not necessary) at Gorge soccer (or originating club for pooled VIPL teams) to attend an assessments.
- If you do pay and change your mind we can always de-register the players and the club can provide refund of fees if you have also paid.
- Players that want to pay by cheque are still required to complete the online registration form – the link can be found on the top left hand side under "Online Services” then "Youth Registration”
- The online registration allows for secure Credit Card or E-Check payment through PayPal.
- For new players to Gorge … A "Proof of Age" document must be on file with Gorge. If this is your first time registered with us you must include a photocopy of one of the following documents with your registration: Birth Certificate, Baptismal Certificate, Passport, Citizenship card/papers, Immigration papers, Status Indian card, or sworn affidavit. If you have previously submitted Proof of Age you do not need to resubmit
- Proof of Age can be i) dropped off at Gorge Clubhouse Saturday mornings when clubhouse is opened, or ii) mailed to Gorge Soccer Association PO Box 44207 Gorge Plaza Victoria B.C. V9A 7K1
Gorge requires a minimum of $80 deposit be paid before the player is assigned to a team or before they start training / playing. Payment in full is desired.
Those that have arranged payment plans with Gorge; have paid deposits; or those waiting for Financial Assistant programs (KidSport) will be the exception.
Please carefully read the registration instructions below before you register online.

Early Bird Fees end on June 30th
Please note that in order to get fees at the first level, fees (or your deposit) must be received by June 30th. Just registering online does not reserve that fee level.
Gorge’s fees are “all in” – Gorge does not charge any additional fees such as VIPL Fee; Volunteer Fee; Facilities/Turf Improvement Fee; etc. For further information on fees breakdown – what they include and what they go towards, please see Registration FAQ Document and Fees Document.
There is a $25 family discount for each child from the same family beyond the first child i.e. the first child pays full fare and each additional child gets a $25 discount. You must register all your children online at once to receive the sibling discount.
- IMPORTANT - Use "add a sibling registration" button on form to add all your children and receive automatic sibling discounts. If one child joins later on so you could not register all children at once please contact club with all children's name and ask for sibling discount, we will link all together and apply discounts to your account.
OUT OF BOUNDARY (TRANSFER) FEE
All players who do not live within the Gorge Soccer catchment area (see boundary map) must pay a Lower Island Soccer Association (LISA) administrative fee of $25 annually. Please ensure you correctly identify your transfer status when you register if you live outside Gorge catchment area. The club Registrar will be checking these annually and making corrections to fees if this information has not been provided correctly. For details regarding club catchments, please see also LISA website.
If you plan to declare your player as a coach's exemption, you are still considered a transfer and subject to transfer fee, please declare yourself a transfer at time of registration and pay the fee.
Only players who have been granted “grandfather status” are eligible for an exemption from this fee. Grandfather status means you once lived inside the Gorge catchment but moved outside of the catchment. This requires completion and acceptance by the league of a grandfather status form.
UNIFORMS / UNIFORM DEPOSIT
Gorge does not charge for a uniform deposit; instead, for the u9 and above age groups we sell the players a kit (jersey/shorts/socks) for $25.00 which the player keeps and uses year to year. When the kit is outgrown or lost, the players can always purchase another kit.
Sorry, we cannot refund money paid for soccer kits that have already been worn.
IMPORTANT - Gorge will NOT provide a uniform to anyone who has not paid their uniform fee (in person or online). The only reason for this is to ease the administrative burden of tracking payments.

In cases of financial difficulty, KidSport Victoria may provide grants to cover fees (does not include deposit cheques or volunteer fees). You can register your child and please select "pay by cheque" option in online registration process and make note that you will be applying to KidSport for a grant. You must apply every year for a grant. See KidSport Victoria for details. In the event of a withdrawal, KidSport grants are refunded back to KidSport, never to the applicant. If you need assistance with any of this contact the club.
Tax receipts are not provided to KidSport grant recipients.
