Mission Statement

Development Programs


Pee Wee Program

Our Pee Wee program is designed for little kickers age 4 to 6 to develop a passion and love for the game. Offered in the fall, WSA Pee Wee soccer serves as an introductory path to development recommended by the United States Soccer Federation. With a focus on small sided games, this program promotes players getting as many touches on the ball as possible ensuring a measurable difference in their progression. Weekly 60 minute sessions are typically comprised of fun activities, games and scrimmages.

Recreational Program

The WSA partners with the Franklin County Soccer Association to offer youth players age 7-18 an opportunity to be active, build confidence and learn fundamental soccer skills. Offered in the fall, our recreational program is intended to develop players regardless of their competence level based on criteria sponsored by the United States Soccer Federation. Within this setting, playing time and participation is guaranteed. No tryouts are necessary to join a team. The recreational schedule provides weekly practices and games for players and teams.

Marbach United FC

Marbach United FC (Marbach) is the extension of the WSA devoted to developing players and teams in a competitive environment. The essence of Marbach is to further the WSA’s mission of developing each player to their highest potential at the local, state, collegiate, national or professional level. Marbach has a high standard of value and execution which is monitored by a board of directors. The board ensures greater accountability and commitment from players, parents and coaches. If you are a parent or coach and want to learn more about how Marbach can assist in your child or team’s development, please email the director.

Code of Conduct

Player Expectations

  • Play for FUN. Tell your coach and parents if soccer stops being fun.
  • Work hard to improve your skills.
  • Be a team player - get along with your teammates.
  • Treat coaches, other players, official, fans and your teammates with respect regardless of race, sex, religion or soccer abilities.
  • Learn teamwork, sportsmanship and discipline.
  • Be on time for practice and games.
  • Practice and play games with energy and enthusiasm but never in a dirty, reckless or dangerous manner.
  • Learn the rules and play by them. Always be a good sport win or lose.
  • Respect your coach, your teammates, your parents, and your opponents.
  • Never argue with an official's decision.
  • Accept full responsibility for your actions--both on and off the field.
  • Remember that playing soccer at Washington is a privelege.

Parent Expectations

  • Do not force your children to participate in sports, but support their desires to play their chosen sport. Children are involved in organized sports for their enjoyment. Make it fun.
  • Set your child up to succeed. Arrive on time to allow players and coaches to connect before the game.
  • Your children and others are watching you all the time. Your actions will tell them what is acceptable. Make good choices in your actions and keep perspective of what is important.
  • Respect and abide by the “24 hour rule” of contact with your coaches for any concerns or questions you have. This includes email, phone, text or an in person conversation.
  • Encourage your child to play by the rules. Remember that children learn best by example, so applaud the good plays of both teams.
  • Do not embarrass your child by yelling at players, coaches or officials. By showing a positive attitude toward the game and all its participants, your child will benefit.
  • Emphasize skill development and practice and how they benefit your young athlete. De-emphasize games and winning or losing.
  • Learn and study the rules of the game and support the officials. Any criticism of the officials only hurts the game.
  • Applaud a good effort in both victory and defeat and enforce the positive points of the game. Never yell or physically abuse your child after a game or practice.
  • Refrain from coaching your child during practice or games. Support your coaches and recognize the importance they have in the development of your child.
  • Coaches are volunteers and deserve your respect.
  • Accept responsibility for your actions and the actions of your guests.

Coaches' Expectations

  • Winning is a consideration, but not the only one, nor the most important one. Care more about the child than winning the game. Remember that players are involved in soccer for fun and enjoyment.
  • Place the safety and well being of every player ahead of all other concerns and goals.
  • Be a positive role model to your players and display emotional maturity.
  • Use age appropriate language and verbal tone when dealing with players.
  • Be generous with your praise when it is deserved; be consistent and honest; be fair and just; do not criticize players publicly; learn to be a more effective communicator and coach; don’t yell at players.
  • Adjust to personal needs and problems of players; be a good listener; never verbally or physically abuse a player or official; give all players the opportunity to improve their skills; gain confidence and develop self-esteem; teach them the basics.
  • Organize practices that are fun and challenging for your players. Familiarize yourself with the rules, techniques and strategies of soccer; encourage all your players to be team players.
  • Maintain an open line of communication with your player’s parents. Explain the goals, objectives and expectations of your team and the association.
  • Be concerned with the overall development of each of your players-regardless of their abilities.
  • Accept responsibility for your actions as well as your players actions. You are their leader.
