FC Westlake Select Soccer Program
What is Select Soccer?
In a nutshell ‘Select’ soccer is 8v8 or 11v11 with licensed professional coaches. Teams are formed through a try-out process where players are selected to a roster based on their ability. These teams are trained and coached by a professionally licensed soccer coach, and will compete against similarly competitive teams. Select soccer allows those players who desire the environment to train and compete at the next level an opportunity to do so.
Players in Westlake Youth Soccer recreational or academy program have 2 main options when it comes to choosing select soccer;
FC Westlake is the official select program of Westlake Youth Soccer, the program is being formally established in May 2014, in conjunction with Lonestar Soccer Cub we will offer 2 options for players who live in the Westlake area or play in the Westlake Academy.
Lonestar 'Central' Teams - Each year Lonestar SC forms 4 'central' teams at U11, this is esentially the best 40 boys & 40 girls pooled together regardless of geographical location. Players will be invited to participate in try-outs for these teams. The remaining players (several hundred) will try-out for select teams based on where they live (i.e. North or South) Previously there has not been an option for families who live in Westlake to stay and play select, the new FC Westlake program addresses that issue.
FC Westlake Teams - Each year WYSA will form U11 teams of boys & girls, these teams will be formed from players in our academy program at U10 and recreational players looking to try select. A handful of players will be selected to try-out for the LS central teams, in the event they dont make those teams we will place them on the FC Westlake teams.
