Wooster Soccer Association

What is the Wooster Soccer Association?

WSA is a non-profit, volunteer organization that works in cooperation with the Wooster Recreation Department to encourage and support participation in soccer. WSA strives to provide participants with experiences that build confidence, good health, team spirit, and civic responsibility. Our goal is to reach high standards of good sportsmanship and proficiency in soccer skills. We also wish to foster a sense of mutual support and respect throughout Wayne County’s soccer community (recreational, traveling, high school, and college leagues).

What activities are available?

The Wooster Recreation Department organizes clinics for various ages at different times of the year. The association supports and organizes outdoor recreational soccer leagues for children beginning at Preschool and continuing through High School. The association also supports and organizes traveling soccer teams for ages 10 to 13 (U10-U14). Participation in traveling soccer is at the invitation of the coach, and tryouts will be announced when new teams are forming. It is expected that all traveling players will have participated in at least one season of recreational league play before joining a traveling team.

Where are games played?

Recreational games are played at the Soccer Complex on Burbank Rd. traveling teams play in the Northern Ohio region and may travel up to 60 miles for games. Wooster High games are played at Follis Field (and away) and College of Wooster games are played at the College campus (and away).
