Executive Changes, AGM 2009-Nov-26
The GKSSA Executive would like to thank Pierre Vanderhout and Kevin McEleney for their dedication to the betterment of soccer in the Kingston Area. Both have stepped down as members of the Executive. Pierre was a valuable member of the GKSSA, serving as Vice President for several years. Pierre’s contribution to our club’s direction will be missed. Kevin has moved away from Kingston and therefore had to resign as Discipline Chair. Good luck to you both.
Fortunately, two other members have stepped up to fill the void. Phil Benevides is the new Vice President and Glenn Unan is taking over Discipline.
2009 Annual General Meeting
The GKSSA’s 2009 Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, November 19 at 7 PM at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.

2009-Jul-07Keys for Lights at Caton’s and Woodbine
All teams should have a key for the lights at the Caton’s and Woodbine fields and should bring it to all games played there. (The same key works at both fields.) If you don’t have a key, get one from GKSSA Registrar Maureen Sakell.
The home team is responsible for the lights at these fields. If a game is abandoned because no one had a key to the lights, the home team forfeits the match.
