This league is designed for those players that do not have the time or need to play Select Soccer. It is a wonderful way to get a few touches on the ball in a game atmosphere without the time commitment of Club Soccer. It is also a way to just have fun with friends. Uniform jerseys will be provided by WYB.
Teams may be formed by individuals prior to sign up. Rosters will be reviewed to make sure that OHSSA rules are met.
