Winter Development League (WDL)
The WDL is a winter, indoor 4v4 soccer league, using small-sided goals with no goalkeeper and a weighted Futsal ball on a basketball-size court. Players register individually and are placed on teams by the Directors, Richard Markham and Allison Sanyi. Players are placed on teams in order to create developmentally-appropriate soccer environments and challenges. Some age divisions may be broad-based and coed, players may play in a different age group, while others may be placed in multiple age-group settings. The league is designed to place players in challenging, competitive circumstances with different players than current teammates. If you have questions about age group placement, please contact Richard Markham, subject line: WDL.
