WVYSL Winter 5v5 Friendlies League

To help with winter training, WVYSL is offering teams a 5v5 friendlies league this winter.  Small sided games ensure all your players get plenty of touches on the ball, keep developing, and have fun.  We have selected the 5v5 format to allow high school player to participate without losing their CCS eligibility.   We also hope this program will help strengthen and build the WVYSL community connections.

The WVYSL 5v5 Winter Friendlies provides each participating team with 6 games, that will be scheduled on Saturdays, January 11 – March 2.  Games are 20 min halves with a 5 min halftime.  All games will be played on one half of one of the Prospect Back Turf field (or an equivalent turf field).  Games will be played with the U10 size Bownets.  Format is goal keeper plus 4 field players.  A center referee is included in the cost.  An initial schedule will be provided but if both teams for a game agree, games can be moved.

Teams will be scheduled for games based on level, not purely age.    Boys vs girls teams will be scheduled if both teams agree.   If we do not have enough WVYSL teams to fill out a bracket, we will selectively invite local teams to fill in the brackets.  Teams may register more than one 5v5 team if there is sufficient player interest.  Guest players are allowed to ensure you can always field a team and also use the games to help assess players trying out to join your team.  Coaches must have a current CYSA or US Club Coach pass.

More details on the WVYSL 5v5 rules are available here.
