Welcome to GSL

For more than 64 years the Gordon Sturtridge Football League, GSL, has been a cornerstone of North Shore community sports.

Since 1956 thousands of players spanning multiple generations have had the opportunity to learn and play football because of the legacy that is the GSL.

Our dedicated coaches and volunteers who run the league and association who come back year after year, even after their children have finished playing, are what exemplifies the spirit of the GSL.

We invite you and your family to join us for any of our open houses, practices,  games, and any other events that we host and get a insight as to why our league continues to be an institution in our community.

Mission Statement

The Gordon Sturtridge Football League (“GSL”) is committed to providing a youth football experience that combines fun, skill development, and experience while also encouraging leadership and sportsmanship.

By having a balanced approach to developing players, we are also providing a pathway for young people to become good citizens and a strong sense of their community.

The GSL is also a leader when it comes to player safety by teaching new tackling techniques as well as amending practice strategies to better reflect the new methods developed by professional leagues and adopted by our governing bodies.

With the continued efforts of the volunteers and families that have created a culture of inclusiveness we can all build on the legacy of the GSL and the development of youth football on the North Shore.
