What is the mission of the Warrenton Youth Soccer Club? The founders of WYSC created the league as a place where children of all ages and abilities could learn about sports while having fun. The emphasis is on learning, teamwork and sportsmanship.
The safety of our players, families, and community is our top priority for WYSC. To help keep everyone safe WYSC has expanded our Covid Policy.
Anyone who is sick or has possibly been in contact with anyone who has, or might have, Covid is not allowed to attend any practices or games. If a player has tested positive for Covid, WYSC must be informed immediately. In addition, the player will not be allowed to return to practice or games until WYSC is provided with a note from a doctor stating they are clear of Covid.
Practices requirements for all programs:
Before each practice starts, Coach will ask players the following questions:
