Registration opens for Fall 2016 Soccer Season
Registration is now open for the Fall 2016 Soccer Season! Season details – cost, dates, eligibility criteria, program descriptions – are on our web site under PROGRAMS. Note: Players wishing to participate on a Travel or Wakefield United team must tryout in June to be eligible for team placement. Register soon!
The TRYOUT SCHEDULE has been released! We have also posted details about the NEW TRYOUT FORMAT. Note: please arrive AT LEAST 45 minutes prior to the start of the weekday tryouts to check-in and get fitted for uniforms.
Go to the REGISTRATION menu to register your children for any of the programs. Register soon to avoid incurring higher registration fees.
In response to new youth age-grouping mandates announced last year by the US Soccer Federation, Mass Youth Soccer and Middlesex Youth Soccer League have updated their age group registration guidelines to account for both school grade and birth year.
Starting with the Fall 2016 season, Wakefield Soccer will follow these guidelines, organizing our programs by both school grade and birth year and renaming them to be grade-based rather than age-based. This change will have minimal impact on players and simply aligns us with other state programs. You may review the Grade-based Grouping information on the website, but know that in almost all cases, this new mandate will have little impact on your child.

In Memory of Ryan Shaw
On Monday, May 9th, the Wakefield community lost an amazing young man, Ryan Shaw. Ryan passed away at the far too young age of 18, after contracting bacterial meningitis. Ryan had participated in the WSA since he was a toddler, and was always a great teammate and friend to all who were so blessed to have shared the field with him. Those of us who were honored to have had the chance to coach Ryan will remember him as a talented, hardworking and caring student of the game, and a respectful and conscientious young gentleman.
All of those who knew Ryan, be they players, parents, coaches, or administrators, are greatly saddened by his loss, but will always remember fondly the many special moments that we shared with him around the game of soccer.
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Ryan’s family as they deal with this unimaginable tragedy, and we invite all members of the WSA family to support the Shaw family in your own individual way.
Rest in peace, Ryan.
