GASC Awarded 5 STAR Club Status

Posted: Feb 20, 2020

Greenfield Area Soccer Club is delighted to have been the first organization awarded the Indiana Soccer 5 Star Certification.  Indiana Soccer introduced the idea and concept of the 5-Star Program in 2018. The purpose of this initiative is to ensure legal corporate compliance and increase the capacity and quality of member clubs. Member Clubs and leagues are invited to elevate their performance in a few fundamental areas in order to meet the criteria established to earn "stars" in those areas. Once a member club or league has reached all 5 stars, they will be recognized and promoted for being a 5-STAR CLUB or 5-STAR LEAGUE.

Greenfield Area Soccer Club’s decision to work toward Indiana Soccer’s 5 Star Certification demonstrates their commitment to continually improving their programs and services. To become 5 Star compliant, The GASC Team underwent an extensive club-wide audit that included Risk Management identification and mitigation of threats to the organization as a whole, Education and Training documents and procedures review, an assessment of the organizations purpose / mission aligning with Indiana Soccer’s and U.S. Youth Soccer’s purpose / Mission, Policies and procedures review on how the organization communicates with participants, and the community and an extensive review of the organizations bylaws, policies and procedures and verification they are in good standing with the State of Indiana, U.S. Soccer, U.S. Youth Soccer, and Indiana Soccer.

Gaining 5 Star certification reinforces GASC’s relentless focus on creating industry-leading programs and services, measured against benchmarks of youth development excellence.

“I have been working with Michael Reeves (immediate past president of GASC) since the fall on this project. Once Michael and the Greenfield club staff dug into this project, they worked hard to get it completed. Indiana Soccer is proud of GASC and happy to celebrate them as the first club that made the full investment in this important program!” Angel Hall, 5-Star Program Director, Associate Director - Indiana Soccer.

“It is truly an honor to recognize Greenfield Area Soccer Association for their commitment to ensure sustainability; to increase the club’s service capacity and the club’s purposeful commitment to be a professional and valuable member of their local community.” – Dave Guthrie, Executive Director – Indiana Soccer

“Greenfield Area Soccer Club is delighted to have been the first organization awarded the Indiana Soccer 5 Star Certification. A standard, ensuring organizational processes related to programs and services that meet the needs of customers through an effective quality management system.” - Michael Reeves, immediate past president, GASC

Jerry Caldwell – Finalist for the 2012 Indiana Soccer Boys Recreational Coach of the Year Award

Posted: Jan, 2013
His positive, “can do” attitude inspires the players and the parents alike.  No matter what the situation, Jerry maintains a positive outlook. He is a highly requested coach that the parents regularly want to teach their children.   He maintains not just the highest standards of teaching the game but also maintains coaching as a fundamentals approach—the players need to know the skills of the game and can excel in those.  Jerry assures that those skills are conveyed to the players.  Players, in turn, like his positive approach to their skills training and the reinforcement that he gives.  One of his regular approaches is, during hot-weather practices and games; he makes sure that “Popsicles” are available to the kids.  He gives selflessly to them.

Dave Bradley – Finalist for the 2012Indiana Soccer Boys Recreational Coach of the Year Award

Posted: Jan, 2013
Dave Bradley has served as a coach in the Greenfield Area Soccer Club for many years.  He continually is a popular and requested coach with players and parents.  He excels in his ability to communicate the fundamental skills of the game and this reflects in not just his popularity among players but in his players’ performance. Dave has always been able to communicate effectively with all skill levels, works diligently with those players who are not as skilled and brings them to a higher level on a consistent, season by season, basis.  He demands excellence from his players, but does so in a manner that is both compassionate and directed.  He epitomizes the word “teacher” along with being a coach.

Greg Russel – Finalist for the 2012 Indiana Soccer Girls Recreational Coach of the Year Award

Posted: Jan, 2013

Greg Russell has served as both the U-15/18 coach and its commissioner for many years.  The league began as a small segment of the Greenfield Area Soccer Club with just a few players.  He has managed to grow the league into what is currently one of our larger groups

Greg also gives selflessly to mission trips to Haiti where he works with children there on soccer programs, regularly extending his teaching skills to them.  Within the past month, he formulated the idea of taking stored uniforms, cleats and trophies to Haiti to give children who lack not just shirts, but cleats (as the players not only play barefoot but do so in stones) to help these children further enjoy the game.

Charlie Joyce – Winner of the 2012 Indiana Soccer TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year Award!

Posted: Jan, 2013

The recipient of this award is honored as the person that has gone above and beyond when working alongside athletes with exceptional needs in the TOPSoccer Program.  Charlie has fundamentally developed our TOPSoccer program and has taken the initiative to promote our TOPSoccer program to the community via different outreach programs.

Charlie has organized and developed relationships with our local FUSE organization (Families United for Support and Encouragement) to help bring our TOPSoccer program to as many families as we can reach.

Charlie takes pride in recruiting Buddy’s for our TOPSoccer program and works with them to pass along the knowledge he has gained from the past two TOPSoccer coaches clinics he has attended. Charlie coaches the kids in an Academy style format where at first we are working with everyone as a big group. He will always take the time to work individually with either an athlete or a buddy to make sure they are performing the correct soccer move. Charlie makes sure that even the littlest athlete gets a chance to have the ball and get a shot on the goal.

Charlie not only is the our TOPSoccer coach but has spent his time as a Board member on both Greenfield Area Soccer Club and USF Real boards, is the Assistant Fields manager for Greenfield Area Soccer Club and is the Travel director for USF Real soccer club. As you can see, his time and energy is spread pretty thin, but nothing will let him miss a TOPSoccer event.
