Guildford Athletic Club: A Legacy of Sportsmanship

The Guildford Athletic Club (GAC) boasts a rich history that stretches back to the years before World War II. It all began with a humble beginning – the Hjorth Road Ball Club, catering to a small group of boys passionate about baseball.

In 1965, the Hjorth Road Ball Club officially rechristened itself as the Guildford Athletic Club. Over the years, the club embraced the growing community, expanding its offerings to include not just baseball, but also softball, volleyball, and the ever-popular soccer. As sports preferences shifted, GAC adapted. Baseball found a new home with the Surrey Canadians Baseball club, and volleyball eventually phased out. Softball followed suit, amalgamating with Whalley Minor Fastpitch to form the North Surrey Fastpitch Association.

Guildford Athletic Club has thrived by adapting to the community's needs, maintaining a legacy of sportsmanship that began with those passionate baseball boys. While baseball and other sports have found new homes, soccer's popularity has solidified its place as GAC's core offering. The beautiful game continues to be the heart of the club's activities. Guildford Athletic Club, often referred to as Guildford AC or GAC. Now specializes exclusively in delivering high-quality soccer programs to over 1,200 participants of all ages and both genders. The Club currently offers a fall/winter soccer season running from September to March, a spring soccer program operating from mid-April to mid-June and offers summer sessions.
