Program Overview

2019-2020 WYSA COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

Age Groups - Born between 1/1/2008 - 12/31/2011

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 12th, 2019 and will continue through middle of June 2020.
Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer Seasons (August - July): $200.00 plus fees per each event
Winter and Spring/Summer Seasons (November - July): $150 plus fees for each event
Spring/Summer Season (April - July): $105 plus fees for each event

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:
• Capture our more committed players by offering them opportunities to train and play,
• Increase participation at more competitive levels by increasing the depth of teaching,
• 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 in 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 attends every training session and/or event. Dates for all three seasons have been listed below to aid families in planning and determination of participation commitment.

WYSA's Commitment - This program holds a central focus on player development. No player will be penalized due to a lack of performance or understanding. WYSA is committed to ensuring that all players be afforded the opportunity to learn and develop their soccer prowess through training sessions as well as game play. We strive to develop teams that are competitive and players who exemplify hard work, discipline, teamwork, dedication, and a positive selfless attitude. It is expected that players always give consistent effort and demonstrate sportsmanship to maintain their opportunities to participate in trainings and events.
