See the step-by-step guide provided by our website host here: Parent Online Registration Instructions. For FAQs about the general registration process, read on!

How are the age ranges determined?

Age groups are based on birth year. We will always highlight birth years to make team placement easy. The following chart outlines what level your child will play at for seasons to come:

You may also print your own copy of the Age Matrix here.

Who determines practice times and locations?
Practice times and locations are left to the discretion of our volunteer coaches. Want to have a say in when your child's team practices? Volunteer to coach! We are so grateful for the time and efforts of our coaches, we are happy to hold practices when their schedules allow. We love our volunteers!

    Note: Any registrant found providing falsified birthdates during registration to achieve placement onto specific teams will be referred to both the Disciplinary and Ethics Committee of WYS where warnings, suspension, or permanent exclusion may be called for.

Playing Up

  • For an advanced player, moving up to a higher age group may be a better fit, subject to club policies

Anyone demonstrating the following unsporting behaviors will be asked to remove themselves immediately:

  • Foul or abusive language will simply not be tolerated
  • Negative comments directed to referees, coaches, players or other parents will not be tolerated
  • If an adult disagreement should arise, it shall be dealt with in a setting other than the public play field in front of children

All reports of unsporting behaviors will be reviewed at both the Club and Association level, and may result in expulsion for both parent and child from any future activities within the Club and the Association for the remainder of the season.

 

Injuries and Insurance

  • All registered players and volunteers are covered by the WA Youth Soccer insurance plan during their participation in CWSC activities.
  • All injuries that occur at sanctioned practices, games, and events that potentially affect your child’s ability to play will be reported to you by the coaching staff. Likewise, all injuries that you identify should be communicated to the coach.
  • CWSC strongly advises parents to obtain a medical evaluation by a healthcare professional if an injury is identified and it is unclear how that injury will impact the player’s ability to participate in soccer.
  • Additional information, including Medical Claim forms, are available on the WYS Website, and search for “medical claim”.
