2021 Fall Rec Registration will open July 10th!  

As we approach the Fall 2021 Rec Season, we will continue to evaluate how to safely conduct our program. We will closely follow any restrictions outlined by State and Local Government and update our program guidelines accordingly. We will do our best to communicate quickly with the WMSC families as changes occur.  Please ensure that your player is registered by midnight, August 27, 2021.


Players in the recreation soccer program will be introduced to the technical, tactical and psychological components of the game that will increase their ability to make positive decisions through fun and engaging activities.

The program is designed for players to practice and play at a recreation level of play:

  • PreK players will participate in one weekday session 
  • Kindergarten - 8 th Grade players participate in one practice session and one game session

Team Formation

K-8th grade players will be divided into teams. These will be formed after the close of registration.

Age groups are Pre K, K, 1st, 2/3, 4/5, 6/7/8.  

Pre K players should be at least 4 years old at the start of the season. Our program is designed for 4-5 year old players and they will play in mixed groups at this age level.

Coaches and Training

Cheshire Academy Trainers will be assigned to train and coach each session.

While WMSC encourages parents to volunteer, all coaching from the sideline and soccer-related decisions, such as line-ups, substitutions, etc., will be handled by the professional trainers.

Required for Games

Shin guards and cleats are mandatory for all players (baseball and football cleats with a toe spike are not allowed). Our Pre-K and K age groups are allowed to wear sneakers, but cleats are preferred.

Jewelry is never permitted during any of the play sessions. Starter earrings must also be removed.

Safety Measures

We will continue to monitor and update our planning as we get closer to the season. We ask that families read all emails to ensure that new guidelines/practices are understood prior to showing up at the field. Players and spectators not adhering to the posted safety measures will be asked to leave the game/session/field.


Uniforms

For the Fall 2021 Season

Pinnies will be provided at the first session and are expected to be brought to all sessions. 

K-8th grade players will be expected to wear a WMSC Rec uniform at their game sessions.  Please always bring both red and blue jersey's. Blue will be used for "Home" team and red for "Away" team.

At the time of registration, you will be asked if your player needs a WMSC uniform kit. This is not part of the registration fee. If you answer yes, you will receive an email from Soccer.com in the following days to initiate your order.  Each kit includes a red and blue jersey, and you will have the option to purchase navy shorts and red socks. You will not be able to order directly from soccer.com, the kits are only accessible once you receive the email link. 

We welcome players to use a second hand uniform from siblings, friends, or through the West Morris Sports Exchange Page on Facebook.

 New this year: If your child will play goal keeper (grades 2 through 8), it is mandatory that they bring their own set of gloves to each practice and game. Your player will also be expected to bring a different colored shirt/pinnie to each game and practices as goal keepers jersey will not be shared.


Referees

We are resuming the Youth Referee program this year! Registration will be open by July 10th.  We welcome local High School students in grades 9 or higher to participate.  Interested candidates must be familiar with the game.  There will be a mandatory training session the last week of August. We aim to have each referee work at least one game per weekend.
