QUESTIONS: Contact the Age Group Coordinators.
TEAM PLACEMENT: For grades K-3, age group coordinators try to set up teams with two players from a school together. Teams are mixed with at least 2 schools per team. Requests can not be made to be placed with a specific friend or coach. Head and assistant coaches can make a request to be paired together.
TEAM PLACEMENT POLICY
Please note The Wellesley United Soccer Club has a policy against accepting requests for specific placement or grouping of players or for specific coaches. While we clearly understand that parents have the best intentions in mind, with hundreds of players per grade the many specific requests that would inevitably be made would make it very difficult , if not impossible, to put teams together.
