Q:  How do I know in which age group/division to put my child?
A:  Our computer matrix should automatically sort your child into the age appropriate division by the birthday that you enter into your registration.

Q:  What if I want my child to play in an older age group/division than the one that the computer has put them in?
A:  Kids in our league are welcome to "play up" to the the next age group.  You would need first enter into the end of your resgistration in the "Special Requests" section that you would want for them to play up to the next division.  Next, you will need to go to Player Evaluations for your registered age group/ division and the Player Evaluations for your desired age group/division, as well.  Our coaches need to approve of any upward movement and they cannot do that without knowing your child's skill level.

Q:  What if I want my child to play in a younger age group/division than the one that the computer put them in?
A:  Unfortunately, children in Wimberley Youth Sports Association cannot play in a younger division unless there is a safety concern.  Any safety concerns should be noted at the end of your registration in the "Special Requests" section of the registration.

Q:  Where are games played?
A;  In our U4 and U6 divisions, all games are played at Blue Hole Regional Park's Johnson Fields.  Our U8 division usually has two away games per season and our U10 division will usually have 3-4 away games per season.  Our U12 and U14 divisions will have the majority of their games played "away."  As these division get more populated, we will have more and more home games.

Q:  Where are practices?
A:  Practice locations are up to the individual coaches, but there is a schedule for practices at Blue Hole Regional Park Johnson Fields.

Q:  When are games?
A:  A games schedule is released the week before opening ceremonies each season, but every attempt is made to have most, if not all games on Saturday mornings for all divisions below U12.  Divisions U12 and U14 will have some afternoon games.  There are also games scheduled midweek occasionally, especially during the Spring Season, in order to make up for rainouts, or cancelled games.

Q:  What do I need to buy and what is already paid for?
A:  Wimberley Youth Soccer Club pays for uniforms for your child including:  socks, shorts, and a jersey.  Each time your child plays soccer they need to bring their own shin guards, soccer cleats, water, and a appropriate sized ball.  

Q:  What size ball do I buy for my child?
A:  Each team is given an appropriate sized ball for their division.  Appropriate ball sizes are listed in the "Rules and Procedures."  Here is a quick list:  U4, U6, and U8 should use a size 3 ball.  U10 and U12 should use a size 4 ball.  U14 and up should use a size 5 ball.

Q:  What does my money go to besides the uniform?
A:  Wimberley Youth Soccer Club as a member of Wimberley Youth Sports Association is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization.  Our registration fees for soccer are kept as low as possible to allow for maximum participation from the community.  Other than the uniform, WYSC pays for referees, field maintenance (including paint and grass seed), trophies and medals, goals, corner flags, referee equipment, insurance, CAYSA membership dues, and concessions, among various training opportunities for our coaches and referees and other expenses associated with running a sports association.

Q:  When do our pictures happen and when do we get them?
A:  Pictures are contracted to an affordable vendor.  New bids for new vendors are taken each year.  Pictures are taken on Opening Day and are shipped to the league 4 weeks after pictures.  This should fall mid to late-season.

Q:  Are the coaches for this soccer club any good?
A:  Although every coach has a different style and a different philosophy about sports/soccer there are a few "values" that are emphasized with all volunteer coaches in our league.  These "values" are:
1.  No lecture lines.
2.  Make learning skills fun with games
3.  Keep all of the kiddos engaged all of the time
4:  Teach the 3 "F's" of soccer:  Focus, Fun, and Fundamentals
5.  Use the "Coaches Corner" on the WYSC Soccer webpage to learn coaching skills and games
6.  If you want to get a cocahing certification, OUR LEAGUE WILL PAY FOR IT.

Q:  Are there boys and girls teams or are the teams all coed?
A:  Our league strives to foster female athlete development.  In order to propagate this philosophy we strive to have separate teams for boys and girls at levels U8 and above  At this moment, our erollment numbers only allow for coed teams in our league, but as we grow and more female athletes register, we will separate in divisions U8 and older.
