Wallenpaupack Youth Soccer

About Our Club


Mission

The Wallenpaupack Youth Soccer League (WYSL) is a recreational youth soccer program that strives to provide a positive environment for our players to learn and enjoy the great game of soccer.  WYSL stresses good behavior from its players, coaches, parents and fans.


History

Soccer in Newfoundland began in the mid 1990's by a parent who hung a soccer flag at the entrance to Carlton Drake Memorial Park. The flag caught the attention of some interested parents. These parents came together with their vision and desire, and in 1999 WYSL was born. It has grown from the 40 kids who originally showed up on Saturday mornings 15 years ago, to the 300+ players we are privileged to have participating in our programs. We look forward to seeing your family in the fall for another great season!

WYSL is run by volunteers.  In order to have a successful season we need your help!

 

League Structure

The WYSL has coed age divisions for ages 6 and under (6U) , ages 8 and under (8U)ages 10 and under (10U), and ages 12 and under (12U). Eligibility for each division is based on a player's birth year. Whatever age your child TURNS this year (anytime before Dec 31st, 2021), that is the age to use to determine their division (the system will automate this process). 

Example:  My player doesn't turn 12 years old until November, AFTER the season ends.  Because he/she WILL be 12 this year, he/she will play in the 12U (12-Under) Division.


Divisions 6U through 10U are all played in house and the games are played at the Newfoundland Park.  
- 6U is structured in more of a clinic style format. 
- There are no practices for 6U during the week. The first half will be allotted to skills and then they will break into teams for small sided games. 

- 8U and 10U teams practice during the week and play games on Saturdays and some weekdays. 
- Practice days and times are determined by the coach and therefore will vary for each team.
- Most teams practice once or twice a week.
- Practice location is also determined by the coach and can vary between fields located by the North School or at the Newfoundland Park. 

12U is a travel team that plays other teams under NEPSAY. Most away games are no more than a 1 hour drive. 
- Practice days and times are determined by the coach and therefore will vary for each team.
- Most teams practice once or twice a week.
- Practice location is also determined by the coach and can vary between fields located by the North School or at the Newfoundland Park.
