New players invited to participate with any WYSC team will need to be playing at age appropriate division.


Policy CHANGE: Spring 2013, WYSC has decided to modify the "Playing Up" rule. and reduce the number or players allowed "Playing up" to two per teams formed before the 2012 - 2013 travel season. New players invited to participate with any WYSC team will needd to be playing at age approciate division. New players will not be allowed to be "Play Up" on U12 or older teams.
