- A family WUHCA membership is required to be purchased ($15) at the time of registration and is not included in your soccer fees. This registration fee helps keep the community association running, offering programs to Willowgrove and University Heights, and purchase equipment.
- Registrations from other community associations are welcome and participants will be placed on WUHCA teams.
- Practices will be once a week Monday – Friday. U5 & U7 teams will be from 6-7 pm and U9 teams from 7-8 pm.
- The full schedule will be released on October 14, 2021
- League games start on October 17, 2021.
- Mini-SISCO Tournament runs March 18 – 20, 2022 and is the end of the season. Registration for the tournament is included in your fees.
Where can I register for WUHCA soccer?
Kindersoccer Registration requires a WUHCA membership and then pay soccer fees through CommuniBee.
U5/U7/U9 Registration has two registration steps*
- Register for a WUHCA Membership and pay for soccer fees via CommuniBee.
- Complete your child’s registration through RAMP. YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS STEP to ensure your child is registered with Saskatoon Youth Soccer and put on a roster and has insurance through Saskatchewan Soccer.
* Having all payments through one system keeps the cost of registration fees charged to WUHCA to a minimum.
What if my child's year of birth is 2012 or earlier?
You will need to register for a zone team through Saskatoon Youth Soccer. Willowgrove and University Heights are in the Aurora Zone. See www.aurorasoccer.ca and www.saskatoonyouthsoccer.ca
My child is small/inexperienced, can they play down a level?
No, this is not permitted by Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc (SYSI). Note that SYSI considers U5-U9 to be non-competitive. Scores are not kept during the games.
Can I register for the U7/U9 Developmental league through WUHCA?
Registration for the developmental league is through Aurora zone soccer. Youth soccer players can only belong to one team during a season, a player can only register on one team through Aurora OR WUHCA. No refunds will be issued from WUHCA for those registering in both leagues.
Will U7 and U9 be co-ed or separate boys/girls teams?
It depends on the number of players registered. Some players may be transferred to or from another community association to create full teams. Typically, we have enough players for separate boys/girls teams.
What equipment do players need?
Running shoes and comfortable clothes are fine for playing and practicing. Shin guards are strongly recommended as protective equipment for U5-U9. If shin guards are worn, they must be covered by soccer socks in order to prevent injury to other players. Most older players wear soccer cleats. For indoor, the most used playing surface will be gymnasium floors and hard, tile floors (Henk Ruys soccer centre) so indoor soccer shoes (no cleats) are best and running shoes are fine. Team jerseys (require a refundable deposit of $40) and soccer balls are provided.
Interested in coaching?
We are always in need of coaches! Unfortunately, if we do not have enough coaches we will be unable to create teams and will have many disappointed kids. Refunds will be given if there is not a coach for your child’s team.
See Saskatoon Youth Soccer for coaching requirements. WUHCA reimburses coaches for certifications upon submission of a valid receipt. All coaches must have a criminal record check.
I can't coach, how else can I help?
You can help with your team as manager or champion for cleaning equipment after practices and games. Another option is to consider signing up as soccer coordinator for next year. Contact anyone on the WUHCA executive if you are interested.
Is there an in-person registration night?
No, registration is only done online.
Do I need to buy a new membership?
You will need a current family WUHCA Memberships. Memberships are valid from July 1st to June 30th. Memberships are purchased via CommuniBee at the time of registration. Your child cannot play without a valid membership.
Registration has ended, can I still register?
After September 14, if there is room on a team you may be able to register by contacting the soccer coordinator. Acceptance is based on roster availability and subject to a $40 late fee.
Why is registration so early?
SYSI requires teams to be formed by mid-September.
Are spots limited?
For players registering within the registration dates, there are no limits to registrations. If we are unable to find enough volunteer coaches, the latest registered players will not be able to play and be refunded.
How can I pay for soccer?
WUHCA only accepts payment through CommuniBee using credit cards.
Can I get a refund?
Refunds are only issued if SYSI cancels the season, such as an increase in COVID-19 cases and provincial health orders.
When will I get team information?
Your coach should email you in early October. If you have not received an email by October 15, email the WUHCA soccer coordinator.
I still have questions, who should I contact?
How to Sign Up for Soccer
Soccer is listed under the events section. Select Browse Events in the top right corner of the App.
A calendar will open up and select next until you get to October. All soccer programs are listed starting October 1. Select the correct age group for your child.
The event will open up and you will be able to purchase a ticket for soccer (you will be unable to see a ticket available until the dates for registration has occurred AND you have an active membership with WUHCA).
Once you have registered and paid with CommuniBee, continue on to RAMP to put your child on a roster.
