2014 - 2015 WYSA Travel (Competitive) Team Program

VALLEY REVOLUTION is the travel (competitive) program of Wasilla Youth Soccer. Tryouts are open to any player who is the appropriate age and has completed online registration. After tryouts, players will either be invited to join a VR team for the soccer year or encouraged to train in our developmental program.
Players must be registered online for their "true age" division before attending tryouts (including current VR players).

2013-2014 Valley Revolution Program Guidelines

Here are a few Valley Revolution program details to assist parents in determining if this program is the right fit for their player and family...

Travel vs Competitive:

We find that the term "competitive" is used locally, often inaccurately, to describe a level of play for young teams and players.  Competition will naturally be present whenever there is a contest with a winner.  So recreational, developmental and travel soccer, are all competitive.  However the difference between these three programs is the type of coach (volunteer vs licensed), training environment (including session duration, frequency, and activities) training calendar/cycle, and travel distance necessary to find appropriate quality of match play.  Valley Revolution travel teams will be composed of players who not only have natural athletic ability, but are committed to training to acquire necessary skills to be successful on the pitch, and are committed to traveling distances appropriate for age division and level of development.  We will be referring to Valley Revolution teams as travel teams, as the term competitive more specifically refers to players who are age 12 and older. 

Team Rostering:

Travel Soccer teams are formed for the entire soccer year.  After player evaluations at tryouts, players will be sent invitations to join the team or a suggestion to participate in the WYSA developmental program, or other appropriate alternative.  Then the invited players must reply to the invitation, committing to participate with the team until Alaska State Cup in August 2014.  There are 3 seasons:  Fall, Winter, Summer. 

Player invitations include costs estimates, to aid families in their decision to accept spot on team.  You my also email wysadirector@gmail.com for estimated costs based on your child's age/division.
