Founded in 2010 with one team and a simple philosophy, our club has quickly grown into a fantastic program with 30 teams. Our mission is to IMPACT the lives of young girls in a positive atmosphere through the sport of soccer, on and off the field. We believe in not only developing great soccer players, but developing friendships and self-confidence. We believe in providing a quality and fun training environment for our players so they would continue to enjoy the sport of soccer throughout their lifetime and making some great memories. Below are some key elements of Impact’s philosophy that separate us from other clubs:
  • Having FUN is rule #1 (Both for the players & the families).
  • We have licensed coaches/trainers to develop the players technical and tactical skills.
  • Our coaches are our trainers and are present at practices and games.
    We believe that once a team is established, those core players stay together to form unity and friendships that will last a lifetime.
  • We encourage our players to be well-rounded individuals through the participation of other sports and activities.
  • We also believe in giving back to the community by partnering with local churches and other organizations.

Coaching/Training Staff Opportunities

Impact GFC is always looking to expand its staff.  Are you a former player, looking to give back to the community?  Did you just finish your SAY season and want to stay together as a team?  Or maybe a former collegiate player looking to train and make some extra money?  Either way, we would love to hear from you – jami@impactgfc.com.

Training Staff

Impact GFC’s training staff is special in so many ways. Not only are they great people in our community and passionate about soccer, but most importantly they are teaching your girls at no charge! We want our training staff to be here because they love the game, our community, and our girls. We believe that our trainers help IMPACT our girls to become strong players and confident people.

At the same time we want to make sure these girls do get quality soccer training. Listed below are some of our coaching bios:

Frequently Asked Questions

Commitment

Club soccer requires commitment from both players and parents. When your child accepts a spot on their team, they are required to commit to play in the Fall and Spring seasons.

Fees (Birth Years 2005 - 2014 teams)

Player fees typically range between $500 - $750, which covers Fall season, winter training, and spring season, plus a one time non-refundable club fee of $250 that is required to hold the spot for both seasons. Payment plans are available. The club fee is collected when the player accepts a spot on the team. Some of our top level older teams may pay more in team fees as they will be playing in multiple leagues and usually more tournaments. The player fee includes league, player, tournament, referee and misc. fees. Uniform costs are separate and are approximately $165. Uniforms typically are purchased every two years.

U7 & U8 Teams (Birth Years 2015 & 2016)

These teams are our academy development teams and play in the Elite Players League (EPL). Players are rostered on one team (per age group) that train and play together. We feel that every child develops at different times and this gives the coaches time to evaluate each player before placing them on a more competitive team. Player fees are $175 and include both Fall and Spring season and two uniform shirts.

U9 - U18 Teams (Birth Years 2005 – 2013)

These teams are divided by skill and competitiveness. Our older teams will compete in several leagues around the Cincinnati area.​

Player Evaluations/Tryouts

New this year, a player may attend any age group training session as their tryout. Offers cannot be made to new players until May 31, but an evaluation can occur before then. We will still hold traditional tryouts the week of May 23, times and dates TBD. We follow the guidelines of Ohio Youth Soccer Association. Please email our director of coaching to set up a player evaluation; jami@impactgfc.com. Or feel free to call with questions - 513-312-0547 / Jami Eversole.

Playing Other Sports​

Yes, we encourage our players to be involved in other sports and activities. While it may take away from potential soccer training time, our philosophy is that it will help them learn other skills, develop additional muscle groups and reduce stress from repetitive motion, and will keep their interest in soccer longer. All we ask is that you don’t take advantage of this freedom/flexibility and make sure you treat both sports/activities as equals. Top tier teams may require a more commitment once the team reaches the U11/U12 level.

Practices

Most of the teams will have 1 1/2 hour training sessions twice a week. Optional skills training is offered once a week for every team throughout the year, including winter (indoors, of course). Practices are held within the Loveland/Miami Township/Symmes Township area.

Season

The soccer season runs from August to late May, with winter activities as optional (but recommended for our top level teams).

Games

Most league games are played on Saturdays or Sundays, with the exception of a few weeknight games during the season. Games are played throughout the Greater Cincinnati area. Our older, more competitive teams, will have a few games in the Columbus and Dayton area. Teams will typically play in 15-20 games a seasons (which includes tournaments).

Tournaments

Teams will typically play in at least two tournaments per season. We encourage our older teams to participate in some out of town tournaments for team bonding and to make memories for the players.

Player Evaluations/Tryouts

Impact GFC is looking to expand roster sizes for the 2022/2023  season.   Players are invited to join an appropriate age group training session this Spring season to be evaluated.  If you have a player that is interested in joining a team, please fill out the necessary information using the Tryout Registration Button.  Not sure or have some questions?  Please email Jami – jami@impactgfc.com.
