The Connecticut Girls’ Soccer Coaches Association was established in 1989 by a group of very dedicated High School girls’ soccer coaches.
The mission of the CGSCA is to promote and strengthen development of girls’ high school soccer in Connecticut. We serve to recognize deserving female soccer players throughout the state with selection by coaches to various All-State teams. Since the CGSCA inception, we have recognized players on the state level at our annual Awards banquet. The CGSCA through its association with the United Soccer Coaches has had numerous female players recognized with All-American honors and All New England honors. Four female players have attained United Soccer Coaches National Player of the Year Honors. Two Connecticut High School Girls’ coaches have garnered National Coach of the Year Honors. The CGSCA is constantly growing. With your membership here is what we have to offer…
