Looks like nasty weather for today Tuesday Oct 26. The B16U Kick or Treat Tournament for tonight is unfortunately cancelled and will be rescheduled.
The fall season wlll be wrapping up towards the end of October for both Rec and Competitive teams. Most of the Competitive teams will transition to indoor soccer as the Competitive Program is Fall, Winter, and Spring. The Rec Program has individual Fall and Spring Seasons.
There are two venues that offer indoor soccer that are used by WFFSC: Wide World in NK and Teamsworks on Jefferson Blvd. Most Competitive teams play at Wide World but some may opt for Teamworks. Any Rec teams usually play at Teamworks.
The indoor fees are much higher than the outdoor fees and this totally due to the venues fees.A breakdown of the fees for Competitive teams is provided under COMPETITIVE tab above. WFFSC only charges fees in order to pay the indoor venues and maybe cover the cost of the database registration and credit card costs. WFFSC does not use indoor to raise any funds, just tries to not lose too much while trying to allow the kids to play.
Teamworks offers Rec programs for various age groups. It would be great to have some Rec coaches coach an indoor team. But if a coach is not available then parents can contact Teamworks and they have what they call Teamworks Tiger teams where they take individual players and form teams for play.
Both Teamworks and Wide World require each player and coach to have a 'pass/membership'. This provides some insurance for the member. At Wide World you have to have an account and can access it HERE. Either create a new account or login to an existing account and purchase a player membership at a cost of $10. This is required in order to add the player to the team roster. Info about Teamworks will be added when needed.
The registration for indoor Competitive team is at the following link. Only register if told to do so by a WFFSC Competitive Coach.

The 30 WFFSC Competitive teams play in the RI league called Superliga. For U11 and older age divisions the league records scores and has standings during the season with playoffs for the teams that make the top portion of the bracket. The U17-U19 teams have playoffs earlier than the U11-U16. The U11-U16 will start next week but the U17-U19 playoffs started this week and 5 teams from WFFSC were in the playoffs. One of the semi-final games featured two WFFSC teams so unfortunately only one of those teams made it to the Finals. Two of the other three teams won their semi-final games and will be in the Finals June 5 at Bristol Colt State Park. Best of luck to the following teams in their quest for the RI Superliga Championships:
G17U/Open Division - Coach Frias

WFFSC is very pleased and very proud to provide college scholarships to some of our long-time players starting college this year. The scholarships are given by WFFSC along with the Elanna Zuller Memorial Sports Fund and the Gianna Cirella Memorial Fund representing two of our super kids taken from us way too soon. I (Doyle) truly appreciate what these two organizations have done and continue to do in our community and for our soccer club.
Applicants must have played for WFFSC for at least 4 years, be graduating high school this year, and attending an institution of higher learning this fall.
RETURN TO PLAY - COVID INFORMATION
The latest from RIDOH is that there are no mandated restrictions for outdoor play. Masks are not required but are encouraged for those not yet vaccinated. Players, coaches, and spectators are encouraged to wear masks if they have not yet been vaccinated.
If there is a positive case of COVID for someone connected to a team, please report to Doyle Byrd at firstname.lastname@example.org. The team will have to quarantine per executive orders from RIDOH. This means the team will cancel practice and most likely miss the next game. These situations will be handled on a case to case basis.
Get your WFFSC Team Gear and competitive uniforms HERE
A uniform set for Competitive Program is a red jersey, black jersey, shorts, and socks. Last name on the back of the jerseys. Select any number but best to get something more unique than 10.
NOTE: Due to some issue on the Challenger website to order competitive jerseys find the section with "INARIA REPLACEMENT" and choose "Admiral Men's/Yth. Custom Jersey". This section will provide a range of appropriate sizes.
RI is in Phase 3 of Reopening. For Youth Sports this means that events outdoors are limited to 50 participants and for indoors it is limited to 25.
For Recreation Spring Program it is anticipated to have a full program with practices and games. There is a plan given on the RECREATIONAL page detailing how teams will practice and have games..
For Competitive it appears that the spring season will occur and expectation is practically all Competitive teams will participate..
SRI AWARD WINNERS
WFFSC is pleased to have the following individuals win recognition awards from Soccer RI for 2020.
Mark Laurie will be inducted into the SRI Hall of Fame. Mark has been an integral member of WFFSC for over 30 years. He started coaching his kids and joined the board. He has been on the WFFSC Board for over 25 years. For many years Mark was the Referee Coordinator for WFFSC, back in the day when communication was done with phone calls. Mark would spend entire evenings call refs and confirming schedules. However, the biggest contribution to WFFSC is that Mark took on the responsibility of Field Director for Winslow Park. The agreement with the City of Warwick when the original Winslow Park was built in the 1990's was that the city would build the fields but WFFSC would maintain them. This includes cutting the grass, lining the fields, trash removal, goals, nets, irrigation, fertilizing, etc. For the past dozen years, Mark has been responsible for all of this work. While he may not be as well-known as others at WFFSC he is one of the most important. When you go to Winslow and the grass is nice and cut and fields lined and goals ready that is all due to Mark. He volunteers a tremendous number of hours so that the kids can play. WFFSC is highly indebted to him for his efforts. Mark was nominated for the SRI Hall of Fame and I am very proud to say he was awarded this significant recognition for his many years of service to this club.
Joe Caldeira was nominated and awarded the Male Coach of the Year. Joe has been coaching for 10 years starting when his kids were very young. Joe coached both girls and boys teams for many years. Joe has also been a member of the board for the past 6-8 years.
Congratulations to these two members of WFFSC for their dedication to the club. It is members such as these that allow the club to be successful and provide an opportunity for the kids to play soccer.
