Frequently Asked Questions From Parents

Who can play for BWSA?
BWSA welcomes players from the Baldwin Whitehall School District, Brentwood School District, and all surrounding communities who are eager to play in a positive, supportive, and instructional environment.

When are the seasons?
BWSA teams play in the fall and spring of each year, and registration occurs months before the season starts. The fall season typically runs from the first week of September through the first week of November. The spring season typically runs from the first weekend of April through the first week of June. Each season consists of 8 games. The season length may vary depending on holidays like Easter, Memorial Day, and Labor Day.
Can my child play with a friend?
Unfortunately, BWSA is no longer able to accommodate player requests.

Can my child play with a specific coach?
Unfortunately, BWSA is no longer able to accommodate coaching requests.

What does my child need to play?
Players must wear shin guards with soccer socks over the shin guards to every practice and game. Soccer cleats are not required but are recommended. Baseball and football cleats are not permitted.

Each child should also bring the right size ball for their age:
Size 3:  5U, 6U, 7U, 8U 
Size 4: 10U, 11U 
Size 5: 12U and older

Players should anyways bring a water bottle marked with their name and sufficient water to each game & practice. 

When are the games played?
In-house games are scheduled on Saturdays from 9:00 AM through about 4:00 PM.  
Travel games are scheduled on Sundays from about Noon through 5:00 PM.

When are the practices?
BWSA practices are scheduled Monday through Friday, typically one day a week for in-house and twice a week for travel.  Practices are set at the discretion of each coach. BWSA 5U and 6U teams will hold group practices once per week. Additional clinics and practices opportunities may be offered throughout the season. 

What if my child can't attend practice on the night that the coach picked?
Please let your coach know immediately, we might be able to make other arrangements depending on the team and level of play.

What is a group practice?
Group practices allow all of the players from an age group to practice at the same time with coaches running sessions focused on fundamental soccer skills. Depending on attendance, players may or may not practice with their team. BWSA encourages coaches to hold group practices with other teams in their division.


BWSA is an all volunteer organization.
It's important for the program that parents volunteer to ensure the success of every season. We encourage families to reach out to inquire on how they can help make our program successful - [email protected]
