What is the mission of the Warrenton Youth Soccer Club? The founders of WYSC created the league as a place where children of all ages and abilities could learn about sports while having fun. The emphasis is on learning, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Coaching Responsibilities
  • All of WYSC’s coaches are volunteers.  
  • You should expect to dedicate only about 3 hours a week. One and a half hours for practice and one and a half hours for games. 
  • At least two weeks before practices start, contact your players. Introduce yourself and explain to your parents when and where practices will be held.  Also make the parents aware of what the children should bring to practices and games.  If you have any other expectations you should make them clear at this point. 
  • Check your team schedule and make sure your team parents know how to check it. Look for situations where your team and the opposing team will be wearing the same color. If any of those situations occur, and your team is the home team, let the parents know what color your team will be wearing that day instead of their regular uniforms. 
  • If you prefer, ask one of the team parents to volunteer as the "team coordinator/liaison" for specific duties during the season to ensure smooth communication.
  •  Attend coaches’ clinics offered by WYSC during the season.
  •  Hold one practice each week and attend up to 8 games on Saturdays throughout the season. Coach your team to the best of your ability, calling on your reserves of knowledge and patience. Make practices fun and productive but don’t forget your sense of humor! 
  • Be a good role model by emphasizing teamwork and sportsmanship. 
Reporting the Score

The winning coach of each game is responsible for reporting the score. To do so you will need to log in to your team's webpage (using the password previously provided by the club). 

Once you've logged, from WYSC's home page, place your mouse over "Teams", then;
  • "Choose a Team",
  • "Basketball 2017"
  • "Age Division coaching"
  • "Team Name you are coaching"

All Score sheets need to be scanned to Lgarner@wysc.org before the end of the weekend.

The first priority in assigning coaches goes to coaches who are returning to the same age division. The second priority in assigning coaches goes to returning coaches moving up a division - the earliest registrations get top priority. The third priority goes to new coaches.
 

Mandatory Clinics
Please review the dates of the season on the home Basketball Rec page and mark your calendars!During these clinics, coaches and referees will be given a packet of information including the rules, responsibilies, club contacts, important dates of the season, etc. Also, coaches will be given their players’ uniforms. Those coaches who do not attend the Clinic will not be able to pick up their players’ uniforms until some time after the first game.
