Fall Practice Field Reservations Guidelines (Fall 2018)

UPDATED August 15, 2018

Hello WSSC Coaches -

The August practice field schedule has been posted (see above). We know many of you are not practicing yet, but some of our field reservations start on Monday, July 30. The rest start on Monday, August 13. The September, October, November and December practice field schedules should be posted about a week prior to each month.

Points to remember:

Plan to practice where you play games** -- it will help spread out our teams around all of our West Seattle fields. Leading up to the first games, we set up our modified field locations (U6 to U12) which will allow younger teams to practice on the mod field where they will play games.

  • **U6/U7 teams should not practice in front of full-sized goals at Hiawatha.
  • **U10 teams should also consider practicing at Riverview South (U10 goals at this venue) in addition to Walt Hundley.

Here are the FIELDS FOR GAMES, Fall 2018 (UPDATED)
Coed U6 @ Hiawatha (8 fields, on Sundays)
Coed U7 @ Hiawatha (8 fields, on Sundays)
U8 @ Riverview North (4-6 fields)
U9 @ Fairmount Park (2 fields) and Roxhill South (2 fields)
U10 @ Walt Hundley (3 fields)
U11 @ E.C. Hughes (2 fields)
U12 @ Highland Park (1 field) and E.C. Hughes (2 fields)
U13-U19 @ Delridge N & S, Hiawatha, Sealth Stadium, Walt Hundley

Open fields (not reserved by WSSC): Alki (6'x18' goals available at this venue) and Roxhill North (across from Target)

Some venue reservations are not a consistent night every week, and we don't always have the fields from 5-8pm. Please check the schedule before you practice.

Some fields are assigned (reserved or shared) by Highline Premier (HPFC) and HSA Select teams. Please be respectful of their reservation. If they are not using the entire field, please ask permission before practicing on the field.

SHARE THE FIELDS!!! A team can't occupy an entire field for their practice--if no other team shows up, then it is fine to use the entire field, but be prepared to run your practice on a half, or a third of a field space (or more on the full-sided fields). 3 teams can effectively use 1 field to run each of their practices--plan ahead! We all need to work together to share all of our fields.

If you are a U12 or younger team and end up practicing at a venue with full-sized goals, please practice to the side so the full-sided teams (U13 and older) can use the goal.

Please do not schedule scrimmages during WSSC practice field reservation times. If you are the only 2 teams on a particular field, then please have an impromptu scrimmage! Be aware that if other WSSC teams show up to use the field, you must share the field! As stated earlier, 3 teams may have to use one full sized field for their practices--keep that in mind when planning a scrimmage. If you can find field time outside of scheduled WSSC practice times, please set up your pre-planned scrimmages at those times.

Are you in need of help to plan training sessions?
Visit the UKISC Online Coaching Curriculum on the Coaches Resource page to download training activities and sessions. These are helpful if you need to train in small areas when several teams are practicing at the same time.

Another great resource is the WYS Age Appropriate Training Sessions. Here you will find 8 weeks' worth of pre-planned training sessions for age groups U6, U8, U10 and U12. Each week includes four different activities and is specifically designed to provide training based on the needs of that age-group. Additionally, each activity is in print and video format - coaches can see the training exercises in action with the videos and then print the diagrams out to bring to the field. View the Coaches Resourse page.

Contact your roster if it is finalized and let them know what your plans are for practices

  • Make sure you have SIGNED Medical Release forms with you at practices.
  • No air horns or dogs at practice fields or games.
  • Walk the pitch before each practice and game to note drains, irregular surfaces, garbage, dog "treats"--things that could inhibit your team during training/games.

Thank you all for stepping up and coaching with WSSC this fall--we could not do it without all of you! You are making a huge impression on all our young players that they will remember for the rest of their lives--be a good influence and example!
