Own the Pitch? What the what?

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.
