Fall 2020 Parent Survey

First and foremost a HUGE THANK YOU to all our parents, coaches, players, referees, and WYS Board of Directors. The fall 2020 season would not have happened without your diligence and cooperation in keeping everyone safe during this incredibly challenging season.

It is our goal for the players in our program to have a positive experience and have fun playing soccer while enhancing their skills.

Please take a few minutes to complete a brief survey about your child’s soccer experience this past season. If you have more than one child in our program, please complete a SEPARATE survey for each child.

Click here to take the survey: WYS Fall 2020 Parent Survey

Survey responses are anonymous, but you can enter your contact information at the end of the survey and we will follow up with you.

Your input is very important as it helps us manage and evolve our programs to continue to meet your needs. We take your input very seriously.

Thank you in advance for your time completing the survey. It should take around 5 minutes and can be completed on a mobile device.

See you in the spring!

Late Spring 2021 Registration Available

Late Registration for Players in Grades 3-8 for the Spring 2021 Westwood Youth Soccer season is available.

Click here for Registration information. Please consider volunteering to help coach your child’s team! Soccer knowledge a plus, but not a requirement.

If a child in Grades K through 2 played in the fall season, there is NO NEED to RE-REGISTER for the spring, as these programs are full-year programs. If a child DID NOT play in the fall, and wishes to play in Spring 2021, please contact the registrar separately at

Working together, we were able to field soccer activities for all our age groups this fall without many issues! Thank you all for your cooperation and compliance. We understand it was different, and at times difficult, but the kids really enjoyed getting outdoors and playing soccer with their friends!

As we did all fall, Westwood Youth Soccer will continue to follow the advice and directives of our local, state, and federal officials, as well as guidance from health and medical authorities to help provide a safe return to play in the spring. The safety of our entire community is paramount.

As needed, the session times and game/practice formats that we have used in the past will be adjusted to accommodate all required social distancing parameters. Flexibility and adaptability will remain important.
