Coaching Overview

WSC values Coaches as our most important resource. This section lists guides, calendars, and other resources for coaches.

Registration & Conduct

Any individual intending to be a coach, assistant coach and/or team managers must be registered (including a background check). For all other questions about registration, please refer to the coach registration section or contact the WSC Registrars.

Player Eligibility & Assignments

  • Players returning from the previous Fall season need to register before the deadline in order to guarantee a spot on the same team.
  • Players can only play on one WSYSA team, regardless of whether it is a Select team (ex. Seattle United) or a Recreational team (ex. WSC, Ballard Soccer Club, etc.).
  • New players are placed on teams by the Registrars and take into account placement requests. Many requests conflict, however, and it is also necessary to balance team sizes and to place kids from folding teams. Spring players that did not play on the team last Fall are considered new players.
  • Players are not eligible for game play until their age has been verified: registrars will contact coaches prior to the start of the fall season about any unverified players.

For all other questions about player eligibility and assignment, please refer to the player registration section or contact the WSC Registrars.

Rules & Officiating

Rules specific to MOD (≤ U-11) or REC (≥ U-12) are available for review, as well as a general overview of the governance structure and league/division organization.

  • U-08 and Under - The coach of the home team is responsible for arranging a parent or volunteer to officiate.
  • U-09 - Referees are supplied by WSC. If a referee does not show up, the coach of the home team should attempt to enlist a volunteer (parent or appropriately aged youth) and confirm that the coach of the visting team agrees with the arrangement.
  • U-10 and Over - Referees are supplied by SSRA. If a referee does not show up, the coach of the home team should attempt to enlist a volunteer (parent or appropriately aged youth) and confirm that the coach of the visting team agrees with the arrangement. The coach of the home team should also report the score to the SYSA by email or phone after the game.

For all other questions about rules or officiating, please refer to the referee overview section or contact the WSC Coach Development Coodinator.

Equipment & Uniforms

Jerseys, new socks, balls and a ball bag are provided to the coach or team manager at the beginning of the fall season as needed. Jerseys and balls can be kept and used for future seasons, or returned to the WSC Equipment & Uniform Coordinator if they are no longer needed or if different sizes are required.
