West Side Soccer League for Fall 2011 – last week to register!

We just registered James for his 3rd season with WSSL, in the VIP division for disabled children ages 5-21. The cost is $120 but scholarships are available for a total cost of $10 if needed.

You can register online at:

http://www.wssl.org/registration_welcome.htm

until June 3, 2011. New players must submit a copy of their birth certificate or passport.

The VIP division plays on the fields in the North Meadows of Central Park. This is really one of the fun Fall activities we enjoy as a family. We often stop at a playground or for a picnic after the game on Sundays.

Make sure to sign up soon – space does fill up quickly and I don’t know if there is any opportunity for late registration.

Mark your calendars! Special Needs Soccer Registration for WSSL Fall season begins April 25

James has participated in WSSL soccer for two seasons so far. We plan to register again this Fall because it has been such a great experience. They meet on Sundays during the Fall in Central Park and our whole family enjoys the outdoor time together. My husband usually volunteers to coach one of the groups. I think it’s a nice way for him to connect in a “typical” way with his stepson – sometimes it feels like there are so few of those opportunities.

If you want your child to play soccer in the Fall, it is best to register early.  Registration will open online at wssl.org on Monday, April 25th.  Once caps are hit, a wait list will begin. Make sure to register for the VIP division if you want your child to play on a special needs team similar to the basketball league and baseball teams in Winter and Spring.

Click here to download a Microsoft Word document of Sports and Extracurricular Activities plus a special Summer Program Section . Some of you may have a hard copy of this from attending a meeting. I will do my best to update it here as summer draws nearer and I find out about more activities and opportunities.

Please let me know if my attempt at being technologically advanced has failed (if the link doesn’t work)

Also feel free to leave any program info you’d like to see added in the comment section!
