Step 1) Register for a WUHCA Membership and pay soccer fees via Communibee.com

  • What if my child’s year of birth is 2014 or earlier?

Your child should be enrolled in Youth Soccer though our zone (Aurora Soccer).  See www.aurorasoccer.ca and www.saskatoonyouthsoccer.ca.

  • My child is small/inexperienced.  Can they play down a level?

No, unfortunately this is not permitted by Saskatoon Youth Soccer.  Note that SYSI considers U7 and U9 to be non-competitive.  Scores are not kept during games.

 

  • Can I register for U7 and U9 Developmental league through WUHCA?

Registration for U7 and U9 Developmental league is through the Aurora zone. Please see www.aurorasoccer.caand www.saskatoonyouthsoccer.ca for details.

Please note youth soccer players can not belong to more than 1 team during a season.  No refunds will be issued by WUHCA for those that try to register their child for both leagues.

 

  • Will U7 and U9 be co-ed or will there be a boys/girls team only? 

This will depend on the number of players registered. SYS will allow co-ed teams for U7 and U9 if there are not enough players to make a team. The coordinators will also be communicating with other community associations to determine what they are doing. If numbers are low our players may be allocated to play on a different community team.

 

  • What equipment do players need?

Running shoes and comfortable clothes are fine.  Shin guards are recommended for U5-U9.  If shin guards are worn, they must be covered in order to prevent injury to other players.  Most of the older players wear soccer cleats.  Team shirts and soccer balls are provided.

 

  • Can I coach? What training do I need to Coach?

Yes!  We are always in need of coaches.  In fact, if a parent on your child’s team does not step up to coach, we will have to refund your money and your child will not be able to play.   

 

Coach Certification Requirements and clinics dates are found on SYS website via  http://saskatoonyouthsoccer.ca/content/coaches

 

  • If I decide I want to volunteer to be a coach and take the coach certification requirements, does WUHCA reimburse me for the courses.

Yes. You will be fully refunded for the above required courses taken.

 

  • I can’t coach- how else can I help?

You can help with your team as manager or fund raising for tournaments or team events. Another option is to consider signing up as a soccer coordinator for next year. Contact anyone on the WUHCA board if you are interested!

 

  • Is there an in-person registration night?

No, there will not be in-person registration.  

 

  • Do I need to buy a new membership?

You will need a current family WUHCA Memberships.  Memberships are valid from July 1st – June 30th. Memberships can be purchased via CommuniBee at the time of registration. Your child cannot play without a valid membership, and late purchased memberships will be assessed a 50% administrative charge.

 

  • Can I register late?

If there is room on a team after March 15 for U7 and U9, you may be able to register late by contacting the soccer coordinator at soccer@wuhca.ca.  Late registrations are subject to a $40 late fee.

 

  • Why is registration so early?

Saskatoon Youth Soccer requires teams to be formed by the middle of March.
