The Westchester Youth Soccer League (WYSL) was established in 1977 as a non-profit, educational organization. Affiliated with US Club Soccer and the US Soccer Federation.
The mission of the League is to foster the physical, mental, and emotional character development of youth by providing a safe, organized, fair and competitive game playing opportunities for our players.
The WYSL sponsors Fall and Spring seasonal travel soccer for its member clubs, including a High School mini-season in November. Many of our over 45 member clubs offer recreational soccer in their communities and host local and regional soccer tournaments. The WYSL offers Coach and Referee Certification Courses, supports the principles of positive coaching, and is a member of the Positive Coaching Alliance.
WYSL is proud to offer coaching education opportunities from our nationally recognized coaching education leaders: The US Soccer Coaching License pathway and United Soccer Coaches Coaching Diplomas. The pathway you choose is ultimately a personal preference, based on your level of experience, the age groups you are currently coaching, and the age groups you plan to coach in the future.
