Fall/Winter tryouts will be May 19-21. See our tryout page for details.
Our 18U AA Team made it all the way to the semi-finals at Nationals in Lansing, Michigan. That is the farthest GSE has advanced at Nationals. Congrats to the team, Head Coach Mike Holmes, Assistant Coaches Vinny Heumann and Chip Cormier.
Our 18U Team is looking for financial help to make the trip to Nationals in Lansing.
Our 18U team won the State Championship, while our 14U North team was a finalist. The 18s travel to Lansing Michigan in a couple of weeks for Nationals.

Our 18U AA team was a finalist at the International Silverstick tournament in Sarnia over the MLK weekend. They fell short in the championship game against the Caledon Hawks, the #1 team in Ontario. They beat Team Midwest (#28 in the US), Gulf Coast Flames, Ted Reeve Thunder (#5 in Ontario), and tied the Aurora Tigers (#18 in Ontario).
We have an impressive 30 players that either made NORCAL Selects or are alternates. That is nearly twice the number we had last year and 40% of our eligible players. These players will move onto CAHA Selects in January.
Congrats to these players for being selected or placed on the alternates list:
