Cleat Exchange is not being offered at this time

We hope to resume the Cleat Exchange next fall.

WSSC Cleat Exchange - Protect the planet, rescue your wallet, and share your shoes!

WSSC has started the Cleat Exchange. This is a great program that offers WSSC families an opportunity to exchange out-grown cleats for a larger size. This exchange program is available to anyone who would like to participate and will work best if families are able to make exchanges. However, it is not limited to families who can exchange shoes. It is our hope to be able to gift shoes to anyone who needs them.

Coaches - how can you help? Please help spread the word to your team families.

Cleat Exchange Program Update - Thanks, Louise, Alli, and Ben!!

The Cleat Exchange was founded by Louis Peterson at the beginning of the 2011 Spring season and supported by her children Alli, and Ben. During the 14 seasons of their stewardship over 2,500 pairs of cleats have been received/donated.

We are delighted to announce that WSSC Coach Ryan Sheafer and his wife Bonnie Lathram will be hosting the Cleat Exchange going forward. Please thank them for continuing this great program!

Bonnie tells us that their 6-year-old daughter intends to sell lemonade and cookies with proceeds benefiting the WSSC Scholarship Fund -- so other kids who do not have the money can play.

Acquire or exchange your and enjoy a cold cup of lemonade with a cookie during the Open Garage Dates published on this page!

Please keep these tips in mind

We accept all well-loved, well-worn soccer cleats. However please keep these tips in mind…

  • Dirty is ok. Muddy is…well, muddy…so please clean before donating.
  • Worn is fine. Holey is not.
  • And stinky…urgh, sometimes there is nothing to be done…sorry.
  • Please no baseball cleats.
