Westside Youth Soccer Association  

Player Info

Welcome to the upcoming soccer season!

We look forward to working with your player this season. Our focus is providing soccer programs that are safe, fun and skill based meant to build individual athletic, team, and social skills through the game of soccer.  Each player who registers on time will be placed on a Westside team.  Past team placements will not dictate or ensure your current season placement.  Schools, coach preference and/or requests do not dictate team placement. WYSA is a community based program and with 1000+ players we are not be able to honour requests and still make fair and balanced teams.  Our volunteers do their best to make teams that are balanced and fun for all.

Late registrants will be placed where possible.

Required Equipment
