Frequently Asked Questions

How can I help?

The role of the parent is central to our organization.  Volunteers make WHYSA successful.  WHYSA needs a variety of volunteers, including: coaches, field painting crews, program coordinators, and board members. There are always opportunities for dedicated parents who wish to help the program. Interested in volunteering? Contact the WHYSA Board President, John Boone, at [email protected] today.

Can you tell me how players are placed on teams after they have been registered?

In U-6 through U-10, the commissioners form the teams and are instructed to place players as equitably as possible and accommodate as many individual requests as possible. The team formation for U11 and older age groups is much different.  Each team in these older age groups must be classified to play within a particular PA West division.  The process of forming teams at this level is based on a combined effort of the commissioner and any other qualified individuals involved in the evaluation process.

Does WHYSA allow younger players to "play up" with an older age group?

Yes. There are times when - as an exception - younger players can “play up” with a team at a higher age level at the request of a parent or guardian. Younger players can also "guest roster" for a single game with a team at a higher age level. The WHYSA policy on playing up and guest rostering can be found on our Documentation page.

I'm interested in refereeing for WHYSA. Can you point me in the right direction?

Yes. Go to Become a Referee. Referees can earn up to $45 per game depending upon the age group of the kids playing.
