For those of you that are new to Wellesley Premier League Club (WPL Club), the program started in 2017 with 48 players and has grown to the point where we now have over 400 players in our program. Coaches are year-round for our club teams and remain with the same team for the duration of the year.

 

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:  In order to be eligible to play on a WPL club team, all players must participate in the 2 days of the WPL club program every week, as well as their town practice and game (WUSC in-town and Bays) and the WPL Club team Sunday game.  If your son or daughter cannot make a consistent commitment to the WPL Club and Wellesley Town Soccer due to other conflicts or activities, then signing up for the WPL Club team would not be an appropriate option for your player.
