  • We will enter teams to play in the Southwest League. This is a local league on the West side of the city that has house league type of play with a little more structure than our house league in U8. All teams have about 20 games throughout the season approximately 2 times per week. Each team will play approximately 50% home games within our community and travel to the away teams for the rest. Most of the away teams are within 5 to 10 minutes from our community. The league is setup to adjust at mid-season to ensure teams are playing in the correct tier. The league is formally structured with scores, standings, and referees.  It is still aimed at being a fun recreational but competitive league style of soccer. More competitive leagues can be chosen by searching other local soccer programs such as Rangers and Westhills United.  The Southwest League allows us to choose our own community teams, have our own home field and play soccer in our community. It also gives us a good set of teams to play against.
  • The league aims at having structured times:
    • (Mon/Wed for girls: 6:00 or 6:30 start for 1.5 hours  with 30 minute practice and 60 minute games).
    • (Tues/Thurs for boys: 6:00 or 6:30 start for 1.5 hours with 30 minute practice and 60 minute games).
    • Final exact times will be determined later on when league is setup. Each team will also have a 1.5 hour practice session flexible to meet the team’s time frames.
  • For more information see: www.southwestsoccer.ca.
  • WSCR home field location will be near the Waldorf school.
  • The Southwest league does have a year-end tournament, which is a lot of fun.

Volunteers

  • To ensure a good quality program, volunteers are needed to perform various roles including coach, assistant coach, team manager, age group coordinator, equipment manager, picture day, year-end tournament, and administrative tasks.

WSCR Membership

  • A WSCRCA Membership is required for registration. Players from neighbouring communities (Patterson, Coach Hill, Strathcona Park, Aspen Woods) are welcome to register, but a WSCR membership must be purchased.
  • WSCR Memberships can be purchased online before the date of registration for $25.
  • If you participated in soccer last year, your membership will be expired at the end of the calendar year you registered. Therefore you will need to purchase a new membership.
  • It is recommended to get that membership prior to the start of soccer registration.

Registration Closing

  • Registrations will be processed subject to space availability in the appropriate age league. Registrations will close on March 31, 2017 or when leagues are full.

Refunds

  • Refunds will be processed upon request, up to March 31, 2017. Refunds may be processed after this date for medical reasons. A $25 administration fee will be deducted from all refunds. This offsets the cost of administrative fees with online scheduling and equipment if other players cannot be found.

Team Assignments

  • Players will be randomly assigned to teams within their age league. Requests for specific players to be put on the same team may be made (maximum 2 per player), but we cannot guarantee that all requests will be fulfilled. Player requests will not be honoured unless stated on the registration.  Assigning players to teams will happen after league registration has closed. In the past there are often cancellations and late entries that require some team adjustments to accommodate the late entries and cancellations.

Uniforms

  • Jerseys, Shorts and Socks will be provided by the WSCR Community Association as part of the soccer program. The players keep their uniforms at the end of the season.

Equipment

  • Appropriate outdoor footwear is required. Cleats are not necessary for U4/U6.
  • Shin pads are mandatory for all games/practices for all leagues.
  • Balls and other field equipment will be supplied by the WSCR Community Association.

Parental Attendance

  • At least one parent/guardian is required to be in attendance during each game (either as a volunteer or spectator).  In the event of player injury, parents will be expected to administer first aid.
