Practice Field Guidelines (Fall 2022)

Updated September 28, 2022

Field Use Etiquette Points to remember:

Plan to practice where you play games -- it will help spread out our teams around all of our West Seattle fields. Leading up to the first games, we set up our modified field locations (U8 to U12) which will allow younger teams to practice on the mod field where they will play games. Mod teams (U6-U12) should not practice in front of full-sized goals at an venue.

Goal safety reminder - make sure goals are properly secured with saddle bags when in use. When you are done with goals, you need to move them back to fence and lock (See GOAL MANAGEMENT page for more info). Do not leave goals on field.
Combo Code to unlock goals is 7908. .

NOTE: WSSC DOES NOT RESERVE PRACTICE FIELDS FOR SPRING SEASON.

Field Schedule GUIDANCE

  • NEW in Fall 2022: Delridge South is being reserved for U13-U19 teams. This year we are trying a new system out at one field only - Delridge South where a coach of a U13 and older team can book a time slot for their practice. A 60-minute time slot can be booked for 1/3 of a field. This booking system is being pushed out to the +U13 coaches now. This is a trial and your feedback will be appreciated. Send feedback to : Brett Conway @ [email protected]
  • NEW in Fall 2022: UKIS Master Coaching Sessions at Walt Hundley on Tuesdays. Get expert coaching guidance from former professional players! WSSC has partnered with UK International Soccer to provide Master Coaches to practice with your team. The Master Coaches will be at Walt Hundley field on Tuesdays through the month of September. Sign up for one of three hour slots for the Master Coaches to train with your team. Learn effective training techniques to develop your players’ skills that you can use throughout the season.
  • Some venue reservations are not a consistent night every week, and we don't always have the fields from 5-8pm. Please check the schedule before you practice.
  • Some fields are assigned (reserved or shared) by Highline Premier (HPFC) and HSA Select teams. Please be respectful of their reservation. If they are not using the entire field, please ask permission before practicing on the field.
  • SHARE THE FIELDS!!! A team can't occupy an entire field for their practice--if no other team shows up, then it is fine to use the entire field, but be prepared to run your practice on a half, or a third of a field space (or more on the full-sided fields). 3 teams can effectively use 1 field to run each of their practices--plan ahead! We all need to work together to share all of our fields. If you are a U12 or younger team and end up practicing at a venue with full-sized goals, please practice to the side so the full-sided teams (U13 and older) can use the goal.
  • Please do not schedule scrimmages during WSSC practice field reservation times. If you are the only 2 teams on a particular field, then please feel free to have an impromptu scrimmage! Be aware that if other WSSC teams show up to use the field, you must share the field! As stated earlier, 3 teams (or more) may have to use one full sized field for their practices--keep that in mind when planning a scrimmage. If you can find field time outside of scheduled WSSC practice times, please set up your pre-planned scrimmages at those times.

Are you in need of help to plan training sessions?
Visit the UKISC Online Coaching Curriculum on the Coaches Resource page to download training activities and sessions. These are helpful if you need to train in small areas when several teams are practicing at the same time.

Another great resource is the WYS Age Appropriate Training Sessions. 
Here you will find 8 weeks' worth of pre-planned training sessions for age groups U6, U8, U10 and U12. Each week includes four different activities and is specifically designed to provide training based on the needs of that age-group. Additionally, each activity is in print and video format - coaches can see the training exercises in action with the videos and then print the diagrams out to bring to the field. View the Coaches Resourse page.

Contact your roster if it is finalized and let them know what your plans are for practices

  • Make sure you have SIGNED Medical Release forms with you at practices.
  • No air horns or dogs at practice fields or games.
  • Walk the pitch before each practice and game to note drains, irregular surfaces, garbage, dog "treats"--things that could inhibit your team during training/games.

Thank you all for stepping up and coaching with WSSC this fall--we could not do it without all of you! You are making a huge impression on all our young players that they will remember for the rest of their lives--be a good influence and example!
