WYB’s Worthington Soccer PLUS (WSP) Recreational Soccer Program includes teams that play in the Ohio Champions League (OCL). Teams from Worthington Youth Boosters compete in the Ohio Champions League but are still administered by WYB.
PARENT COACH TEAMS
OCL was a league founded in the Spring of 2009 with the goal of raising the level of player development for youth soccer players in Columbus Ohio.
WSP parent coached teams now have the opportunity to participate in a higher quality league with low fees and are not required to tryout.
Worthington players can join a parent-coached team playing in Ohio Champions League for as little as $200 per season. Teams may be formed prior to signing up. Individuals may register but will be added to existing rosters as needed. If there are no teams in a particular age group or if there is no more room on existing teams for this program, families will be notified and issued a refund.
A uniform package must be purchased by all WSP registrants
Ohio Champions League provides a good level of competition for teams that have outgrown the level of play offered by Recreational leagues.
Coaches work together to create a game schedule that will work for their team. This can include as few as 6 games per season or as many as 10 games at times and dates of the coach's choosing.
Ohio Champions League is a US Club Soccer league. This means players have the ability to receive player passes that will allow them to play in competitive tournaments with no additional carding fees.
SEEDED LEAGUE TOURNAMENT
Teams will be seeded in the league tournament at the end of each season. This ensures that each season will conclude with a competitive event where teams can expect close games. There is no extra cost for this end of season tournament.
Should Your Child Compete At This Level?
This program is competitive and for players and teams that have excelled in the rec program and are ready for the next level. Staying in recreational soccer can still provide opportunities to improve. Players trying to compete at a higher level than they are ready for can affect player confidence and their love for the game. Please do not push your child to go to a higher level if they are truly not ready. Higher level practices are available through WYB clinics and camps
For more information or to sign your team up please contact the WYB Middle Tier Soccer Commissioner, Laura Bell at Ldmsoccer@yahoo.com
