Have a Question?

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions pertaining to Waxhaw Soccer Club.

Q:  My child and a friend would like to play on the same team.  Is this possible? - While this is a very common request, we cannot guarantee placement. Due to Age Rules, players typically cannot "play up" and will play in their appropriate age group. With more than 600 players in a season, it is extremely difficult to align teams, schedules, and players for all of our families. 

Q:  My child already has a commitment on "Wednesday nights", but he really wants to play soccer.  Can he be placed on a team that doesn't practice on "Wednesdays"? - Team practice days and times depend on coach and field availability.  Our coaches in REC/EDP/Micro are volunteers and the practice schedules depend on their schedules. However, we make every effort to honor parent requests and can look at team changes on a case by case basis.  Please enter your schedule conflicts in the comments section during the registration process and we will do the best we can. 

Q:  Ages & Birth Years are listed for the various Programs that Waxhaw Soccer offers, but what is the cut-off date? - The age cut off date is December 31st as FIFA rules dictate Birth Year. For example, if your child turns 9 (2013) prior to May 1st of the current season (2022 in this case) - they would be registered for the U10 for the 2022/2023 Season. 

Q:  Online registration has closed but I would like to know if I can still register my kids to play? - We do try to make exceptions for players to register past the closed date. Our registrations are open 2 months prior to the season, but with many families moving to the area as well as busy schedules, we try to make exceptions. Once we submit rosters to NCYSA, our teams are closed. Send us an email and we will see if we can accommodate you at

Q:  I registered my child to play but he has changed his mind.  May I get a refund? - Our policy is to offer NO REFUNDS except for extraordinary circumstances (season ending injury or family relocation outside of the immediate area).  If this request comes before we roster players, we can make exceptions on a case by case basis.

Q:  Registration is closed, but I have not heard from a coach.  What should I do? - Because of the last minute flood of registrations, rosters are made the week after registration closes.  If you have not heard from a coach and practices should be starting, please let us know.  

Q:  How do I get a season schedule? - With our website, schedules for your family will be available to view through your account with SportsEngine.  Once the schedules are finalized for each of your children's activities, all you have to do is login to your account.  SportsEngine offers a Mobile App as well to track your child's schedule, contact the coach and more! 

Q:  What is your weather cancellation policy? - There are several factors that we take into account - current weather, forecasts and field conditions. Because our N.C. weather is often sporadic, we try to wait as long as possible to cancel practices and games.  The determination is typically made by 3:00pm on weekdays and 8:00am on Saturdays. Field closure notifications will be made to coaches and members via email.  If this is not the preferred method for contacting you, please let your coach know.  An alert will also be present at, Waxhaw Soccer Club FacebookWaxhaw Athletics Facebook & Waxhaw Soccer Club Instagram indicating any HOME field closures. Away Field Closures would be communicated from the opposing clubs. 

Q: What do we do if there is thunder and/or lightning at Nesbit Park?

Lightning has been detected within 10 miles of Nesbit Park. Please return to your vehicle until the storm has cleared. We will make an announcement when it is safe to return.


  • 10 miles radius for Severe Weather & Lighting
  • Siren and Message will be sent out over the intercom system

The basic rule; is a 30-minute wait after you see lightning or hear thunder. The 30-minute clock restarts EVERY TIME A NEW LIGHTNING FLASH OR THUNDER SOUND IS HEARD.

The system will give the all-clear when does not detect any severe weather.

Return to Play:

  • "The storm has passed and lightning is no longer within 10 miles. You may resume play."

Q: Do you offer financial assistance for registrations? 

Based on certain circumstances, WAA does offer financial assistance. Please see the application link below. 


Adult misconduct towards sports officials is becoming more prevalent in society.  To draw attention to and help put a stop to this behavior, North Carolina Youth Soccer (NCYSA) and the North Carolina Soccer Referees Association (NCSRA) have instituted the Yellow Wrist Band Initiative for Minor Referees.

For our young, inexperienced Referees to become more experienced and better Referees, they must be able to officiate games without intimidation, fear, and/or abuse.

A Referee wearing the Yellow Wrist Band is a minor.  We expect adults to show the encouragement and respect the minor deserves as the minor learns their craft.

Adults that are written up for misconduct – whether an official is wearing the Yellow Wrist Band or not – will be given more severe sanctions than in the past!

If an adult is written up for misconduct while the official IS wearing the Yellow Wrist Band, expect lengthy suspensions for the adult.


While most NCYSA parents show officials the respect they deserve, and it is only a small percentage of adult spectators and adult coaches who push the boundaries of proper etiquette, it is EVERYONE’S responsibility – the Club, the coaches, other parents, etc., to police themselves and to set the standard for acceptable behavior.

We appreciate your assistance and attention in this initiative and encourage you to share this information with your staff and parents.  We have attached a PDF to this email for your use if needed.

Here's to a great Spring Season!
