Wrentham Youth Soccer (WYS), Inc, a chartiable corporation and volunteer organization, that is committed to providing boys and girls of Wrentham, MA the opportunity to learn, play and appreciate the game of soccer, as well as provide an atmosphere for children to learn sportsmanship, respect and fair play.WYS presently has over 600 children participating in recreational and competitive programs.
We offer two programs for boys and girls in grades K-6:
The In-Town program is for children in grades K to Second 2 and is comprised of two divisions - K Division and U8. The purpose of the In-Town program is to teach young children the basic skills of soccer in a fun, safe environment. The program consists of training sessions and games on Saturdays against other Wrentham In-Town teams. The In-Town program is only available for the fall season.
Our K Division (kindergarten only) consists of small, single gender teams focused on introducing soccer to a very young audience.
Our U8 division (1st and 2nd grade) consists of single gender teams with a mix of 1st and 2nd graders on each team. The focus of our U8 division is to provide additional training and skill development, coupled with “small-sided” games.
The Travel program is for children in grades 3-6 and is comprised of four divisions – U9, U10, U11 and U12. WYS Travel soccer is offered through BAYS. Travel is a competitive soccer program in which Wrentham teams play other town’s travel teams. The Travel program consists of training sessions, practice and games on Saturdays with an equal number of home and away games. Travel teams are based on evaluations, which take place in June. Wrentham Youth Soccer utilizes third-party professional coaches to help determine the appropriate travel team for each child (to learn more, see evaluations section). The Travel program is offered in both the fall and spring seasons.
BAYS maintain multiple divisions (e.g. 1 to 4) of play based on the performance of the teams. The WYS places each travel teams where we feel they will be competitive and challenged to succeed. BAYS also considers past team performance as additional criteria for division selection
All training, practice and games for both In-Town and Travel are played at the Rice Complex located on Emerald Street, Wrentham, MA Players wishing to play on travel teams in an age group above U-12 (12 prior to 8/1) should contact King Philip Soccer Association (KPSA).
Wrentham Youth Soccer is a volunteer run organization. Our Board of Directors, Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Division Coordinators and Field Coordinators are all parent volunteers. As our program continues to grow year over year, we are always looking for volunteers who share our passion for teaching Wrentham’s youth the game of soccer. If you are interested in volunteering, please see the volunteer section.
Wrentham Youth Soccer Board generally meets on the last Tuesday of every month at Fiske Library in Wrentham MA. All are welcome to attend.
WYS cannot exist without the efforts of many, and the volunteer board appreciates the dozens of volunteers that step up every year so thank you.
