Youth Soccer: Double-Rostering:
Players can only play on one team that competes in the same Division. (i.e. players cannot play on two teams that may compete against each other – Violation may result in Forfeits and suspensions). Players can dual roster and play on two teams in the following situation: The secondary team is in not in the same age division as the primary team (i.e. a U12 B Division Player can also play in a U12A or U14A/B/C division)
No player can be rostered on more than two teams in the same division.
We strongly encourage associations, players, coaches and parents to select a team and or division that challenges the player’s development. WWIS management has final authority to remove a team and/or players that far exceed the competition of the age group.
It is the responsibility of the team coach that the roster is accurate. Any coach found with an illegal player will be suspended from the premises for one full calendar year.
