Welcome to WCWAA Soccer
 

We would like to welcome you to the Wesley Chapel – Weddington Athletic Association (WCWAA) Soccer Program. We have proudly served Union County and the surrounding areas since 1982. WCWAA Soccer started humbly with just 94 families with children ages 7 to 14 playing soccer at the Recreational level. Today, we currently have over 2000 families in our programs with children ages 3 to 18 playing at all skill levels. With our continued growth, WCWAA Soccer has risen to become one of the top programs in North Carolina.

The WCWAA Soccer Programs are focused on individual player development and team concepts of play. As a player matures, WCWAA is able to offer the more competitive environments of our Youth Academy, Challenge, Classic and Premier levels of play. WCWAA also offers our “Take on Sports” Program which caters to children, ages 5 – 22, and adults 23 and older with special needs. This program provides an opportunity for these athletes to learn new skills, build physical fitness and self-esteem and most of all have fun in a safe and positive environment.

WCWAA Soccer is committed to being actively involved in its local communities. We annually take on a leadership role in helping raise money for organizations such as the Union County Red Cross, CMC-Union Edwards Cancer Center an affiliate of Levine Cancer Institute, along with many others.

WCWAA Soccer’s reach extends well beyond the Wesley Chapel and Weddington areas to include all of Union County, Charlotte/Mecklenburg County and into the State of South Carolina.

NC State Cup Series
6 Teams Advance to Final Four in 2015/2016 State Cup Play!
 

State Cup play for the 2015/2016 seasons is coming to a close.  WCWAA would like to congratulate all of our teams that participated in USYS, Kepner Presidents’ and Singer State Cup events this year!  We appreciate your representation of our club on the fields!

 

5 teams this spring advanced to the Final Four of their respective tournaments and age groups joining the single girls team in the fall to advance to the final weekend of play.  These 6 teams join a long history of WCWAA teams reaching the Final Four of state cup play that dates back to 2008.  Each year, WCWAA has had at least one representative.

 

The year, in Singer Cup action, the 99 Silver coached by Garrett Vaughan and the 00 Silver coached by Travis Joseph, reached the semifinal matches.  Both teams ultimately were eliminated after hard fought 3-2 scorelines.  Congratulations to both teams, their coaches and their families!

 

Three teams have advanced to this weekend’s Final Four of the Kepner President’s Cup in Greensboro NC.  Semifinal games will be played this Saturday at Bryan Park with spots for Sunday’s Championship games on the line.  Winners of Sunday’s finals will represent NC at the Region III Championships in Texas in June.

 

The 02 Black G coached by Stewart Draper will be making their first appearance in the Final Four in their first year playing State Cup!   These U13 girls will play CSA Torsion Saturday evening at 6:00pm.

 

The 98 Black, coached by John Romaine and Jimmy Mumby, will be returning to the Final Four to play TFCA Navy Saturday at 9:00am.  This team, now U17, has played in the President’s Cup final the last two years, winning the Championship in 2014.

 

The 99 Black, coached by Jimmy Mumby and Dan Efenecy, return to the Final Four to continue defense of their 2015 NC and Region III Championships.  Last year, the 99 Black became the first WCWAA team to win the Region III Championship and advance to Nationals in July.  Now U16, the 99 Black will take on OCSA Coastal Crew at 3pm Saturday in their semifinal matchup.

 

In November, our 98 Black G returned to the final four and President’s Cup Championship game for the 2nd time in 3 years.  A double overtime thriller left our girls on the Finalists podium but capped a remarkable season for them having clinched promotion to Premier for the Fall 2016 season.

 

Congratulations again to all WCWAA teams for your performances in the NC State Cup Series!  Thanks for representing our club and our families so well!

 

Good luck to the three teams playing this weekend.  We all support you, we all are proud of you, and we all can’t wait to see how you do.

US Soccer Birth Year Mandates

US Youth Soccer statement on U.S. Soccer’s birth-year registration mandate

FRISCO, TEXAS (Jan. 26, 2016) — As previously announced in August 2015, US Youth Soccer, along with other youth soccer sanctioning bodies, will be implementing the U.S. Soccer Federation’s birth-year registration mandates on Aug. 1, 2016.  

This means that beginning Aug. 1, 2016 all regional and national US Youth Soccer competitions, including all levels of the US Youth Soccer National Championship SeriesUS Youth Soccer National LeagueUS Youth Soccer Olympic Development ProgramUS Youth Soccer Regional Leagues and US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup, will be based on age group cut-offs of January 1 for each age group. Due to additional interpretative changes by U.S. Soccer since this announcement in how competition age groups are labeled, US Youth Soccer and other sanctioning bodies are now clarifying the age group structures for the 2016-2017 season.

  • Beginning Aug. 1, 2017, all youth soccer sanctioning organizations will form competitions based on birth-year age groups.
     
  • Beginning Aug. 1, 2016, US Youth Soccer will be using the following birth-year “labels” for competition, based upon the season in which competition ends. For example:
    • Players born from August 1, 1997 – December 31, 1998 will be labeled as Under-19/20s.
    • Players born from January 1, 1999 – December 31, 1999 will be labeled as Under-18s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2000 – December 31, 2000 will be labeled as Under-17s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2001 – December 31, 2001 will be labeled as Under-16s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2002 – December 31, 2002 will be labeled as Under-15s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2003 – December 31, 2003 will be labeled as Under-14s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2004 – December 31, 2004 will be labeled as Under-13s.
    • With the exception of the US Youth Soccer Under-19/20s, the age group “label” will be determined by subtracting the year in which the players participating in the competition were born from the year in which competition ends. 

The change to birth year age groups and to the “labels” for naming each age group have been made by U.S. Soccer. You may view the U.S. Soccer matrix here, please note the definition for US Youth Soccer Under-19/20s competitions above.

US Youth Soccer, along with other members of the U.S. Soccer Federation, have been collaborating with each other to help ensure that these changes forced by the U.S. Soccer mandates are implemented as efficiently and smoothly as possible. This collaboration of youth members is ongoing, and each member is continuing to provide feedback and recommendations.

Clubs may continue to organize their teams for competition with players of any age younger than the age group cut-off.

The US Youth Soccer Board of Directors encourages US Youth Soccer State Associations to transition as they deem necessary to accommodate their soccer landscape at the local level.
