Looks like some rain coming through early this morning and then clearing out by 10 or so. All 8:00, 9:15, and 9:30 games are cancelled for Saturday June 12 and will be rescheduled for the same time next Saturday June 19 so those teams can hopefully get in their last games. At this time the games starting after 10:00 are ON and hopefully they can be played although it might be a bit wet.

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
B19U/Classic Blue Division - Coach Carpenter
B19U/Classic Gold Division - Coach Galamaga
The G17U-Frias and B19U-Galamaga teams won the Superliga Championships!!!
Congratulations to both teams.

Return to PlayThis Spring
WFFSC will monitor the RIDOH COVID regulations and provide spring soccer programs that meet the requirements. The expectation at this time will be that we will be able to run both spring Rec and spring Competitive Programs.
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
RI recently moved to the 'pause' and added more restrictions. With the recent release (Jan 20) of new guidelines from RIDOH games are again allowed. Some teams will be playing indoors but not all players and coaches are comfortable with this so it will only be a portion of our teams. However for the upcoming spring season the expectation is that practically all compettiive teams will be playing and that a full REC Program will happen within RIDOH guidelines. If RIDOH present new or modified guidelines we will abide by them.
The guidelines are given in the following document for WFFSC that relies on the other documents especially the ones from Soccer RI and RI Reopening.
COVID Plan Administrator is Doyle Byrd

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.
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.
