The season will consist of 8 games, which will be played on Saturday mornings and several Sunday afternoons.  Practices are 1-2 nights a week and are scheduled by the individual volunteer coach.  Volunteer coaches are needed.  Interested persons should contact Juli Pintz (Recreation Coordinator) at 614-836-1000 ext. 1505 or jpintz@groveport.org.

Soccer officials are needed.  The GRD needs officials for the fall soccer season.  Officials earn $12 - $22 per game, pay rate depends on if official is certified and what division they work.  Officials must be 14 years of age or older.  Interested persons should contact Juli Pintz at jpintz@groveport.org or 614-836-1000 ext. 1513.
