Fall Season 2004 is just around the corner .... are you practicing now?
WAYSA is focused on recreational play and has structured its activities in support of player and referee development by:
- All teams are formed by a town/club open enrollment and random team placement. There are no skill divisions in the league. All teams are expected to be balanced, rather than stacked.
- Each team should strive for each player to play at least 50% or more of a game.
- U10 and U12 games are 7v7 to maximize player touches with the ball.
- U10 and U12 games are not tracked for win/loss. The end of season U10 and U12 tournament is to expose teams to other divisional teams.
- League is fair minded to ensure players can play with team roster size waivers, playing down waivers, and combining fractional club teams into a whole team.
- League having a signed Coaches code, recommended reading for Parents code of conduct, and being responsive to address incidents when they first occur.
- League develops U10 and U8 referees through in-house unlicensed training and paid games. League reimburses referee's course license fees (eligible for those refs in highschool only). League sponsored referee training.
- Providing non-varsity players an opportunity to continue to enjoy their youth sport with U18Girls and U18Boys (available when 5 or more teams can be formed). Also for the parents of players and coaches, an O30 Coed league.
