REGISTRATION DEADLINE: April 7th, 2023 ($100 late fee from March 27th)
We are currently only accepting U12 Girls and U15 Girls registrations.
You are encouraged to register by the published registration deadline. All participants who register after the registration deadline will only receive a spot on the tournament team roster if the roster has not yet been filled. We encourage everyone to check out our Team Placement & Evaluation Policy with regard to questions of team size, and player placements within one or two teams. If the roster is full, even before the deadline, you will have the option to be on the practice squad. We encourage you to register for the practice squad if the roster is full to avoid any additional fees after the deadline. Additional teams will be added if enough players allow and players who registered as practice squad will have the chance to move across to the league team if they would like. This is also dependent on our ability to provide coaches for additional teams.
Spring 2023 registrations for the tournament teams are rapidly filling. If you have NOT already registered your player please do so ASAP.
NOTE: If the roster is full, SE will not allow you to make a payment for the tournament team. We highly encourage you to select the practice squad option which will act as a waiting list for the tournament team. Based on final numbers and interest, we will do our best to accommodate getting players on a tournament team. If the roster is full and you have to register for the practice squad, please email us (email@example.com) and indicate you registered for the practice squad but would prefer to be on the tournament team. Additional teams will be added if enough players allow and players who registered as practice squad will have the chance to move across to the league team if they would like.
When registering for programs in SportsEngine, open it on google chrome, not safari. SportsEngine advises that you close all tabs that are associated with SportsEngine if you are using safari and then try it again, then try another device if that still isn't working. Although Google Chrome should work every time.

Important Information Regarding 2023 Tournaments:
In past years, WESA has taken all of our teams to the Durango Shootout and Stenger Invitational. For 2023 we have decided to attend Rock Cup and Stenger Invitational, all of our U10-U15 teams will attend these tournaments. The reason behind this is due to to size of Rock Cup and Stenger. They allow us to place our teams in brackets that are closer to our ability level, which is an advantage of bigger tournaments. We understand that it requires two back-to-back weekends in Denver, but we believe this is beneficial for development and FUN!
Below is the Colorado Rapids schedule, they play at home on both of these weekends.

TENTATIVE PRACTICE SCHEDULE:
