If you have any questions, please refer to the information on www.westboroughyouthsoccer.org or contact the Age Director for your player level.

Please note: There are NO refunds. However, if the season is cancelled by WYSA due to COVID, registration will be cancelled and a pro-rated refund issued.

*****Please ensure to register using the same DOB, first and last name that was used in the past when registering through the Mass Youth Soccer site. The use of different names when registering (Mike instead of Michael, Dave instead of David) will cause a failure to sync the records between your WYSA site and the Mass Youth Soccer adult registration database. Therefore, causing duplicate records that will not be consistent season over season.****
