Program Overview

2018-2019 WYSA COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

Age Groups - Born between 1/1/2007 - 12/31/2010

Overview: Our Competitive program is for those players and families who want more from soccer and are willing to make the sport a major priority in their lives. The program offers players the opportunity to visit other soccer hotbeds around the area, and to compete against some of the region's top competition. The distinguishing quality between our Recreational program and our Competitive program is the level of commitment involved. Players are expected to train and travel more than recreational players do. This program offers some great skill and player development as our players are all getting coaching from licensed coaches. Players will train 2 times per week.

Season & Fees: Our Competitive program starts August 20th, 2018 and will continue through middle of July 2019. Cost of Competitive Program: $180.00 plus additional costs per event. (Aug - July). There will be a reduced rate of $130.00 if you wish to sign up in October/November for the months of November - July.

Program Purpose: The purpose of this program is to provide advanced training and competition for those players who enjoy the sport and desire to deepen their involvement with it. By offering this more competitive program we aim to:

o Capture our more committed players by offering them opportunities to train and play,
o Increase participation at more competitive levels by increasing the depth of teaching,
o Build a consistent stream of teams training and traveling at competitive levels by adopting this program into our soccer culture. In other words, this will become our club/competitive program.

Commitment: All WYSA programs operate on two levels of commitment, WYSA's commitment to the player/family, and the player's/family's commitment to the program.

Player's/Family's Commitment We understand that many of our kids participate with other sports. We don't want to deny a child's opportunity to play all the sports they enjoy. Therefore, we do not expect that every player attend every training and/or event. This is why we have given you the dates in advance. You can make a decision as a family as to whether this is something that you are really capable of doing.

WYSA's Commitment This program holds a central focus on player development, no player is going to be penalized because a lack of performance, or understanding. We are committed to ensuring that all players have the opportunities needed to learn, and develop their soccer ability both on the training pitch, and in the game. However, because hard work and consistent effort is a value we hold as a soccer community, players who show a disinterest and lack of effort will be restricted in their opportunities to participate within the program, the trainings, and competitions.
