Thank you for taking part this year and a special thank you to all those schools who completed all their fixtures. If you have any suggestions as to the running of the football leagues next season I would be pleased to hear from you and they will be considered at a future WASPS meeting.
Entries are now open (Closing date - 20.09.19)
Entries will open in the new school year
Year 3 and 4 Competition
Teams will be placed placed into area-based leagues which run through the Autumn and Spring terms. It is expected most leagues will involve 9 or 10 matches being played. Please do not enter if you feel you will be unable to complete all fixtures. The top teams will then play off in semi finals and a final at Wolves Training Ground to determine the City Champions.
Schools will have until March to complete all league fixtures and results will need to be returned by the end of March.
The playoffs will be held during the following week.
Failure to return results on time will lead to teams forfeiting a place in the league.
ANY RESULTS RECEIVED AFTER THIS DATE WILL NOT COUNT.
Rules introduced by the WASPS committee
Teams will be 9-a-side and can contain both boys and girls. Full rules apply including offside. All teams, both home and away, must be accompanied by a teacher. Matches should be refereed by a member of staff employed by either school (either a teacher or support staff or from another school in the authority as schools have often used the experience of other teachers) or a FA qualified referee, if schools are using a qualified referee from outside the school please make your opposition aware of this.
Parents are encouraged to help coach teams and are appreciated in this role but cannot have full responsibility for the conduct and safety of the children or refereeing.
Matches are to be 20 or 25 minutes each way (unless agreed by both staff in charge because of light conditions or weather)
Matches can only be cancelled by home teams for adverse weather or the condition of the pitch. It is expected that the home member of staff ensures the safety of the players.
Substitutes are roll-on, roll-off and a size 4 football should be used.
If a school fails to play any matches before Christmas then they will be removed from the league. Please contact me if any problems arise over arranging fixtures. If two schools cannot agree a date then both schools forfeit that match and will receive no points from the fixture.
