Exposure is half the battle

WAGS season kicks off this weekend

By Jimmy LaRoue

The Washington Area Girls Soccer league kicks off its fall season this weekend with a full schedule of games for Under-9 through U-19 teams across the Washington, D.C. region.

Sixty-two clubs are fielding teams in WAGS this fall. The U-9 through U-12 age groups play in a non-results oriented system.

Beginning this fall, WAGS is no longer creating U-12 fall divisions based upon U-11 spring results, easing what the league says is a “win-at-all-costs” mentality. Instead, the league will “consider placement of like competition with like competition.”

WAGS is also continuing with its POD scheduling for U-9, U-10 and U-11 age groups, saying that it’s easier to implement the club pass system that allows for a club’s coaching staff to watch up to six club games in one location in a short time span, also allowing for what it says is a “greater sense of club as different age groups of the same club are together, supporting each other.”

The league most recently hired Glen Buckley to conduct a league-wide membership survey this fall to better serve the clubs under its structure.

Here’s a listing of league schedules and division structures.
