Waxhaw Athletic Association (WAA) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization serving young athletes and their families since 1980. WAA offers Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Basketball, Flag Football and Cheer and is presently the fastest growing athletic association in Union County. Our families come from surrounding communities within Union County, South Charlotte, and bordering South Carolina.
Waxhaw Soccer Club (WSC) is a part of the Waxhaw Athletic Association and is committed to developing the love of soccer within our players and our community. WSC has grown to become one of the largest, most competitive soccer organizations in Union County. Over 850 youth participants in our soccer programs (Competitive + Recreational) each year and we continue to grow that number annually.
WSC provides a progressive developmental program including Micro and Early Development Program (EDP) for our youngest players, Recreational programs for players of all levels, and then competitive Academy, Select and Classic programs for our more advanced players who travel and compete at local, state and regional levels. We also provide coaching clinics and additional training opportunities to support each level of instruction.
Our goal is to provide children and their families with accessible, age-appropriate developmental programs that players can grow with over time. We start our youngest athletes with early developmental programs so they can focus on building skills and confidence in a fun, safe and supportive environment. As our players grow older, we work with them through our more competitive programs to advance their technical skills while expanding their tactical knowledge of the game. At every level, we encourage positive motivation, good sportsmanship, and teamwork while building a sense of community.
Communities that participate in sport and recreation develop strong social bonds, are safer places and the people who live in them are generally healthier and happier than places where physical activity isn’t a priority. Sport and recreation builds stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities.
Sponsorships support training for coaches, tournament fees, uniforms, facility and equipment upgrades as well as provide additional athlete scholarships.
Premier Sponsorship is the EXCLUSIVE sponsorship for our advanced competitive program including Academy, Select and Classic teams ages 7-18 years old. This level of sponsorship provides you the most extensive opportunity to advertise your support both within and outside the WSC program as our competitive teams travel locally, statewide, and regionally.
Recreational Sponsors support our Recreational Program reaching our 7-16 year old players and their families. This sponsorship level provides excellent exposure by advertising your message to a broad demographic across multiple age groups and teams.
Micro Sponsors support our Micro Program reaching our youngest players ages 3-4 years old. This sponsorship level provides excellent exposure by advertising your message to our newest families.
EDP Sponsors support our Early Development Program (EDP) reaching our 5-6 year old players and their families.
Academy Sponsors support our Youth Academy Program reaching our 8-9 year old players and their families. These teams travel throughout the Charlotte area and provide high visibility.
The competitive team tryout week is one of the biggest soccer events of the year. Hundreds of children and families come out to try for a position on one of our competitive teams.
Team Sponsorships are a great way to get involved and support WSC. Team sponsors help provide funds for tournament fees, team warm-ups, polo shirts, and other training gear.
Athlete Sponsorships are a great way to support young athletes in our community who are in need of assistance to play. Your gift allows children to play the game of soccer, who otherwise might not have a chance to play.
Tournament Sponsorships are a great way to help our Competitive & Recreational teams travel locally, statewide, and regionally. Your support provides funds for team tournament fees and travel-related expenses.
Community Sponsorships are a great way to show your support for WSC and the community of Waxhaw. Your gifts support equipment and facility costs.
Multiple opportunities to support expansion and maintenance projects at H.C. Nesbit Park & Western Union Elementary School. Waxhaw Soccer Club is responsible for field maintenance as part of our agreement with the Union County Board of Education, Western Union Elementary School as well as Waxhaw Parks & Recreation for H.C. Nesbit Park. This keeps your taxes low and requires fiscal responsibility and structure in operating the program. Below are high priority projects that currently need to be funded to continue to meet the needs of our growing community.
As an all-volunteer organization, we promote parent and community involvement. Many of our coaches are parents who have played competitive sports, have a strong knowledge of the game and want to share their experience through coaching a team. We provide coaching clinics and curricula to support each level of instruction. We invest annually in our fields and facilities to ensure that they are up to standard and safe for play.
Over the years, the Waxhaw Athletic Association has worked hard - and with a lot of heart - to build a strong sense of community. We welcome new players and their families to be part of our growth, now and in the future.
