News and Announcements

Since implementing our new uniforms last year we have been looking to donate our older uniforms to a community in need.

We have been contacted by friends of a Canadian girl, Carli, who has moved to Uganda and is now a mother to 14 Ugandan kids!

She is working on a huge project called the Abetavu Children’s Village, which when complete will not only provide a healthy, loving environment for up to 100 children, but will also serve as a hub for the local community, providing much needed access to basic health care and primary education.

Included in their plans is a soccer pitch for their kids and the surrounding village children!

WYSC is pleased to donate jerseys for 108 players, which is enough for 9 teams of various ages.

Our U11 Girls will also be signing a dozen soccer balls that will be flat packed and sent so that they can start playing as soon as possible!

Thank you for supporting your club which allows us to help support others too. Happy Holidays and know that these children will now have the opportunity to learn the ‘beautiful game’

WYSC Winter 2012-13 – Indoor Futsal Soccer Program
The WYSC is very fortunate to have the use of the Tennis Centre throughout the winter and it is an excellent facility to run the Winter Indoor Futsal Soccer Program.

The course will be based around the game of Futsal, which is a professional sport in many high profile soccer nations. Futsal has developed many top professional players; such as Ronaldo, and his close ball control has shown what a successful training method Futsal is.

The game promotes close control of the ball and the tactical approach to the game. Each player will get lots of time on the ball to develop their foot to ball movement skills and will also play lots of small sided games, working on teamwork.

The balls used to play Futsal are a low bounce high density ball. For our younger players it gives them the chance to get the ball under control more easily. For the more developed players, it gives them the opportunity to try and master skills that they would not try in match situations.

This is an intensive 5 week course instructed by Mark Freeman, WYSC Technical Director, and with a min. 10 and max. 20 players per session, is a great opportunity to increase and improve any level of players skills.

Note that this program is in addition to the regular soccer season registration and therefore the additional fee applies. The U7, U11 and U14 groups practices are 1 hour and the U9 group is 1.5hrs due to availability and is priced accordingly.
