Own the Pitch? What the what?
First and foremost, we would like to thank each and every one of you for choosing Gretna Soccer Club.
We know there are other soccer clubs out there and are grateful that you have selected our club for
your children. It has always been our mission to provide the best quality soccer to all age levels at a fair
price. We have continued to grow and include more great coaches who bring with them a lot of soccer
knowledge and skills. We have also been fortunate enough to have an indoor space where we can train
Four years ago we built the Gretna Indoor Soccer Complex in an effort to secure a quality venue for our
kids to train and play soccer over the winter. As many of you know and some of you probably don’t
know, the Club does NOT own the Complex. We established a 10-year lease with the company that
built the complex for exclusive use of the complex and the 40 acres that it sits on. We feel it is time for
the Club to purchase the complex and the 40 acres. The benefits are:
1. Secure a long term home for GSC player development
2. Take advantage of our status as a non-profit organization
3. Take advantage of low interest rates
4. The Club is in a strong financial position
5. Current monthly payment would go toward ownership rather than leasing
To purchase the facility, the Club will need to secure a significant down payment. As a Board, we
discussed options for how the Club could cover the cost of this down payment. In the end, we felt that
it would be best to execute a capital campaign rather than making a one time assessment to the club
membership to help cover a portion of the down payment. The remaining down payment will come
from Club assets. Since the opening of the Complex, the Board has done its best to not allow the
Complex to be a burden on the Club operations. It has always been staffed and run by volunteers to
help keep it affordable for all club members and all competitive levels of soccer.
