Once the team placement offer has been sent out you will have 48 hours to accept the offer to confirms your place on the team. Any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out within the 48-hour timeframe.
The number of teams formed in an age group will depend on the number of players who register and their ability levels. Should there be a need for a second team, these teams are tiered (according to ability) as an ’A’ team and a ’B’ team.
Players are selected to the appropriate team based on a number of criteria including the player’s birth year, ability, previous Wellesley Premier Club coach’s feedback and their assessment performance.
2015 - 2014 - Teams 7 vs. 7 game format
2013 - 2012 - Teams 9 vs. 9 game format
2011 - 2010 - Teams 11 vs. 11 game format
Practice Schedule/Game Schedule:
The Fall season begins in early September and will run until mid-November. Every Wellesley Premier Club practice will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings this Fall and Spring season across the town of Wellesley. Games are played either home or away on Sundays in both the Fall and Spring. Each team will practice 75 minutes per session, 2 times a week. Wellesley Premier Club players are expected to attend all team practices and games. The winter sessions begin in January and goes through the month of March, information will be sent out later this year and these practices will be on different days to the Fall and Spring schedule.
In 2023/24, Wellesley Premier Club teams will participate in a variety of local and regional tournaments. Teams may play 1-2 tournaments per season, depending upon the age group and competitive level of the team. Every Wellesley Premier Club player will be expected to participate in their team’s tournament. This is an additional cost.
*Coaches may enter individual team(s) in a one-time only specific tournament and/or participate in tournaments that are annual events or involve the entire club.
Academy - Practice Only Teams
If we are unable to find an appropriate level for a team to play in the league we will offer the team an academy spot which will provide the team a practice only environment to continue to develop as players.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: In order to be eligible to play on a Wellesley Premier Club team, all players must participate in the 2 days of the Wellesley Premier Club program every week, as well as their town practice and game (WUSC in-town and Bays) and the Wellesley Premier Club team Sunday game. If your son or daughter cannot make a consistent commitment to the Wellesley Premier Club and Wellesley Town Soccer due to other conflicts or activities, then signing up for the Wellesley Premier Club team would not be an appropriate option for your player.
Please feel free to contact Lewis Wright, Premier League Director (premierleague at wellesleysoccer.org) should you have any questions.
