As we look forward to the Fall season, Wellesley United Soccer Club wanted to make players, parents and coaches aware of a change in our coaching staff.
Lewis Wright, who has been with the club as the Director of Coaching, has decided to take a year out from coaching to travel the world.
"We wish Lewis the very best in his travels and want him to know that there will always be a place here at Wellesley for him" said WUSC GM Chris Howard. "We are so very proud of the job that Lewis was able to do here. He managed to reach a lot of players and coaches with his coaching style and personality. He will be sorely missed".
The club will be interviewing for a replacement, and an announcement will be coming soon.
"I just wanted to thank Wellesley United Soccer Club for all the support over the last few years" Lewis said "Without the players, parents, coaches, and board this experience wouldn't be the same. I want to wish everyone the best of luck for the upcoming season and beyond."
Anyone looking to wish Lewis well and keep in touch with him feel free to email him at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fall Academy Registration Open
Fall Academy Registration Open
WUSC Director of Coaching, Lewis Wright, is pleased to announce this fall the Academy Program is kicking back into action with program options for Pre-K through to 8th graders.
Why the Academy Program?
The Academy Program provides players with age relevant instruction in a fun and exciting environment. Each program is tailored to fit the needs of the player in terms of their age and stage of development. The overall goal of each program is to develop and enhance skill level, while expanding the players’ knowledge of the game. Using an exclusive curriculum, players will experience high quality, specialized coaching.
Player development is our number one priority at WUSC. We understand that no two players will develop at the same rate – the Academy Program creates an environment where players are presented with individual and collective challenges and given the tools required to succeed.
All academy sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons - Click the following links below for specific details:

There will be additional “Fan Wear” available in youth and adult sizes so the whole family can show their support during every game. This is how most town clubs in our area manage uniforms and the initial cost can sometimes cover multiple seasons.
What else can I purchase? There are also training jackets, hoodies and other gear available online.
Wellesleys TOPSoccer Program
Wellesley United would like to thank Dani Torres and all the other Volunteers who help with the running of TOPSoccer in Wellesley. TOPSoccer is a huge part of the community that is designed to meet the needs of young athletes that have physical and/or intellectual disabilities. TOPSoccer is geared towards player participation and development rather than competition. Here is a bit more about TOPSoccer from Dani Torres.
What is TOPSoccer and how did it get started in Wellesley?
TOPSoccer is a program to enable children with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities an opportunity to play soccer on a team.
TOPSoccer has been offered for 3 years in Wellesley and was started by a group of Wellesley High School seniors.
Where are your sessions held and how often?
TOPSoccer runs for 6 weeks, once a week. The sessions are Saturday’s or Sunday’s. The program has a fall and spring season. The sessions during the Fall are usually held at Sprague.
What are the benefits of TOPSoccer for a child?
The program allows for technical soccer skills to improve as well as social skills to be developed. Each player works with the same volunteer every week, so a relationship is established between them. The volunteer encourages and motivates the player and helps them to succeed. Additionally, the players socialize with each other and engage in activities together to get the feeling of being on a team.
What should people expect from the TOPSoccer program?
People should expect the program to provide an adaptive environment with one to one attention so the athletes can succeed/improve in the sport they love.
How can children get started in the Program?
To get started in the program you can email me Dani, at email@example.com, and register on the Wellesley United Soccer Club Website.
