GI Heartland Soccer: Welcome



Greetings, parents and coaches! I just wanted to send a quick follow up on the socks. they are still in transit. We remain hopeful that they will arrive before Saturday; however, at this point, we ask that you plan to have your child wearing their own socks for this Saturday. If anything changes with this, I will post an update here as soon as I know something. As a reminder, any color can be worn; however, they must completely cover the shin guards. Thanks so much for you patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience.




Great Soccer Value

With the Annual fee players receive a full uniform, which they get to keep, two seasons of soccer (Fall and Spring). Soccer games will be played at the Veterans Soccer complex in Grand Island. Our Fall games will start on September 13th and run through October 18th. GI Heartland Soccer is our local youth league. We will not be traveling to other cities. The Heartland Soccer Club will continue to have and encourage the competitive travel teams for the Grand Island area.

Quality Coaching – Club Coach Heartland Soccer Club Coach, James Panowicz will be working with Coaches to create a Coaching Development program. Coaches are encouraged to check out the Nebraska State Soccer Association’s site for age-appropriate articles and training sessions. You can find the site at:


Heartland Soccer Club is working towards developing all areas of our sport. As we grow, we will need to have more referees to assist with supervising games. Anyone interested must be at least 13-years old at the time of the certification course. If you are interested please contact our Referee Coordinator David Stolz at or by phone (308)380-7610. Being a referee for a game is a great way to make Money$$ - We can start interested referees in our Basic Training at $12.00/game. Once a referee is certified they will make $20.00 to be a side line referee and $25.00 to center a game. There is terrific opportunity with our referee program. It also allows our players and coaches to better learn the rules of the game.

Volunteers Welcome! Every organization is need of Terrific Volunteers like you! Please contact us if you would like to be involved in planning, organizing, being on a committee or helping us in any way. We can use the help of good motivated people to make this a well-organized and educational experience for all of our kids. Contact Debora Carpenter at or (308)379-0551.
