The Big Walnut Soccer Association (BWSA) is a non-profit recreational league for children ages 4-14 in the Big Walnut area and surrounding communities. The BWSA is dedicated to the education of soccer and good sportsmanship in a fun, community environment. Players are taught the value of hard work, perseverance, teamwork and respect. We strive to create a positive, energetic learning experience for children and parents as well.
The BWSA is a totally volunteer organization and we are constantly in need of parents of younger children to join as coaches and board members and grow with their children and the league.
The BWSA has two seasons each year. The Fall Season runs from August through October with the application deadline in early July, while the Spring Season runs from March through May with the application deadline in early February. Participants must both register and pay the appropriate fee for each season separately.
Registrations for the Recreational League are open with an on-time deadline of July 5. We will continue to accept registrations until divisions are filled on a first come basis.
Although it seems that registration and the following deadline are quite early in the process, it takes time to get a critical mass of participants signed up. Until that point, we cannot determine the number of teams that we can create within a particular age group and then the number of coaches we will need to lead those teams. The more parents that volunteer for those positions, the easier it is for us to define these issues.
You will be contacted by your child’s coach with practice information after our coaches meeting in late August. Refer to the web site to stay informed as to when that exact date will be. Games will begin on the first Saturday after Labor Day and will run through the end of October.
