Joel Pickering: RIP

Earlier this week, the GKSSA was forced to bid farewell to one of its long-time players. Joel had played in the league since 2009 when he joined with KUSC I. In 2012, he joined Cataraqui I and was part of their 2013 Carmine Lanzo, Sr Cup winning team. In 2017, he joined Kingston Hot Fire, his final team in the GKSSA.

Joel also played for the St Lawrence College Men's team between 2012 and 2016.

Joel leaves behind a wife, Melissa, son Theo, and many grieving friends, opponents, and teammates.

Joel's obituary can be found at Arbor Memorial.

Ontario Soccer suspends all sanctioned soccer activity

Ontario Soccer has decided to immediately suspend all sanctioned soccer activities in the province until further notice.

As such, the GKSSA must postpone our indoor season until we hear from Ontario Soccer.

Please be patient, as this is uncharted territory for all of us. We will keep you informed of any new developments and are hoping that we can continue and complete our indoor season in the near future.

Players Looking for Teams

As a courtesy to player hopefuls and teams looking for players, the GKSSA maintains a publicly accessible Google Drive spreadsheet with information about players looking for teams in the first tab, and teams looking for players in the second tab (tabs are at the bottom of the spreadsheet window).

Any players that want to be added to this list should fill out this form.
