Spring 2022 Player Options

Background:

The younger ages are critical years for a child’s development. Historically, a number of players at the end of the fall recreational season choose to continue with soccer and are looking for a program to join for the spring season.   We understand the importance sports has on the developmental of young children and therefore, WPFC has identified 3 soccer options for the 2021-2022 spring season for players born in 2012 through 2015.  Getting your player placed at the right level is very important for their continued growth in any sport.   Players gain confidence with success on the field.   Below are brief descriptions of the 3 options WPFC will be offering this spring.

Premier Program:

WPFC will be holding a supplemental tryout session on December 4, 2021 for our Premier Program U8 – U10 age groups (players born in 2012-2015). The premier program offers the most competitive level of soccer at the state level.  These teams practice 3 times a week with games on the weekend.  This spring, the state will pilot a U8 division that will play 7v7.

JR. RCL Program:

We will be holding a single team formation night for players wanting to join the Junior RCL Program. The program provides families with flexibility while at the same time provides a training environment for the more serious soccer player.   This session is for players born in birth years 2013 to 2015. In the Junior program, U8 teams will play 4v4. Team formation night will be January 10, 2022.

Spring Recreational Combo Program:

For spring of 2022, we will be offering a spring option for recreational players.  This is ideal for those players that are involved in multiple activities and for the family who wants a lower financial and time commitment.  The program will consist of participation in the Friday Night Spring Academy sessions and will be supplemented with Sunday training sessions that will focus on tactical training and will conclude with pick-up games and scrimmages.  This program will have options for players U6 (birth. year 2016) through U13 (birth year 2009).

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Washington Premier Football Club (WPFC) for the development my child's soccer skills?

Washington Premier is recognized nationally as one of the top youth soccer clubs in the country. The club has a focused coaching philosophy and player development pathway for players through age 18. WPFC owns their field complex which Includes 25 acres of grass fields, and (3) full size lighted turf fields which provides the ease of one venue for practice. WPFC offers a competitive fee structure with access to the highest level of competition in the country. WPFC consistently ranks as one of the top Regional Clubs in league and post season play results.

What is the new 7 a side program for the U8 age group?

This spring, Washington Youth Soccer is piloting a new opportunity for U8 players to experience 7 a side gameplay before the players begin a full year-round season in this format at u9. This program should be viewed as a bridge from the current 4v4 play at this age group to the 7v7 game format for those that are ready for it now.

Should I sign up my player up for the new U8 7v7 program or the JR. RCL program?

The new U8 7v7 division is a pilot program. Each RCL club will be able to add one team comprised of U8 players that are ready and/or looking for the experience of 7v7 for this upcoming spring season. Teams formed will play in a new U8 specific RCL league.

Not all U8 players are ready for 7v7 play. If you are unsure, we would suggest you come out to the supplemental tryouts on December 4th and let the coaches evaluate your player and provide you with feedback relative to the best developmental pathway going forward for your child.

What does the schedule look like for the new U8 pilot program?

The pilot program will look similar to other RCL teams with a professional coach and training three days a week at our complex beginning in January. Games will be in the Puget Sound area and will start later in January through April. Complete game and training schedule to be confirmed once teams are formed. As a rule of thumb, most U14 and below games are played on Saturday.

How much does the new U8 pilot program cost?

The price for the spring season will be $510. $170 will be due upon accepting a roster spot with 2 additional installments of $170 due the 20th of the month in February and March. New players to WPFC will be required to buy a uniform kit, which will run approximately $60 before taxes and shipping and handling.

What if I paid in full for the Junior Year round program and my child is picked to be part of the Pilot U8 division?

After the December 4th tryout, we will have a handle on where players landed and will look at each player’s financial status.

If a player is new to WPFC and is placed on the pilot team, the fee will be $510.

If the player is in the Jr. Program and selected the Fall only option, the fee for the spring season would be $510.

If the player is in the Jr. Program and selected the year round option, the fees will be adjusted so the total amount paid equals $1,260.

Will Jr RCL 4v4 option still be available?

YES!! Not all U8 players are ready to play 7v7 at this time and that is fine. The Jr RCL training environment and 4v4 games are still an important development program so this will continue as usual for U8 and U7 age groups in the spring. To register for the JR. RCL program, click on the below button and select 2021/22 Junior RCL (U8 & U9) from the program options.

If my child is currently in the Junior program and wants to tryout for the new pilot program, do I still need to register?

Yes, you will need to register for the tryout. By registering in advance,  helps us to prepare and make sure we have enough coaching staff available to run the session and evaluate players.

How do I register and when are tryouts for this program?

The Supplemental tryout for players U8 – U10 is free and will be held on Saturday, December 4th from 12pm-130pm on field 2C. Please register ahead of time so we can send you more details as needed prior to the event. Registration is open, click on the above button to Register Now.
