For every WSL parent that would like to see their athlete play at a higher level – but is not interested in travel. For every coach that would like to coach soccer but is unsure where to start.
For every recreational athlete that would like to play High School Soccer.
GOAL: To offer recreational athletes an academy style program where they work on foots kills and play small sided games. To educate coaches in proper mechanics and fundamentals of soccer. To allow WSL community-based programs to offer training for local athletes that choose not to travel. To offer recreational coaches an educational experience that will allow them to coach at a higher level.
Whippet Soccer League will be a viable option for parents that do not want to travel; or younger athletes that would like to someday play on a travel team.

Due to inclement weather - and we must cancel practice and/or games, I will notify coaches, and post on the website. If games are being played and bad weather hits the area (lightning is seen), games will be postponed for 30 minutes after the first sighting, and the 30 minute timer will restart if lightning continues. It will be my decision to cancel games / practice due to the safety of everyone. If a game is postponed due to lightning, take shelter in your vehicles.
About the Soccer League
It all starts with a dream: a dream to be a Whippets Soccer Player. At WSL , we’ve been making dreams come true since 2019, when girls soccer became a sport at Shelby High School. Our plan is to give the youth in our community the opportunity to learn how to play the game, and to prepare them for high school soccer and beyond! Your child will receive quality training / clinics by knowledgeable, experienced Soccer Coaches. Volunteer Coaches will also receive quality training.
VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED - If you are interested in coaching your child's team, please mark the appropriate box in the players registration form. A pre-season coaches clinic / meeting will be held as soon as we have a list of volunteers, and background checks have been completed.
