WESTERN YOUTH LEAGUE

The Western Youth League (WYL) competition is a representative football competition conducted by Western NSW Football (Western Branch).

The WYL competition covers age groups from U10 through to U16 and includes representative teams from towns such as Mudgee, Dubbo, Bathurst, Orange, Lithgow and Parkes.

WYL teams can be mixed, however where player numbers allow, separate boys and girls competitions to be conducted they will be. The WYL is the first step into representative football for players in Western NSW.

How are the teams selected?

All Mudgee WYL teams are selected on merit, based on a mix of performance during local season and at designated trials.

The designated age group coach will be responsible for selecting the squad/team. Where necessary the coach can consult with members of the club committee to discuss selections and team make up.

As these are representative teams, a standard level of skill is required in order to be competitive in the WYL competition. Unfortunately this means some players who trial will not be selected.

Every effort will be made to provide players that are not selected in WYL teams with individual feedback and tips around areas of improvement; however this can be challenging in large groups.

How will I find out about trials?

Details of WYL trials will be:

  • Posted on the club Facebook page and website
  • Emailed to guardians of all current players
  • Announced on local radio

Players of all skill levels are encouraged to attend trials. Representative team trials are a great way to assess a player’s skill level and gain feedback on possible improvement areas.

Does my child need to be registered as a player with Mudgee Gulgong Wolves to trial/play in a WYL team?

Your child is not required to be a registered member of the Mudgee Gulgong Wolves Football club to attend and participate in WYL trials.

Should your child be selected in a WYL team, they will need to be a registered member of the club in order to participate in the WYL competition.

What happens at the trials?

Upon arrival your child will register their attendance with the appropriate club/team representative. Once registered, your child will be directed to where their age group is trialling.

The trial process will be managed by the designated team coach.

There is no standard process for the activity a coach will undertake as part of the trial. Each coach will have their own way of assessing a player’s skill and development. Trials could consist of individual skill demonstration, team based drills or simulated games.

Your child should bring:

  • Appropriate training attire (please refrain from wearing previous year’s representative kit)
  • Soccer Boots
  • Water
  • Sunscreen
  • Energy and positivity
What age group should my child play in?

Your child must trial in the appropriate age group.

Age group is determined by the age the player turns in the playing year (ie, for season 2021, a child turning 11 at any stage during 2021 will play in the U11)

My child has friends in an older age group – can he/she trial in that team

Your child must trial in the appropriate age group.

Where a player has trialled and been unsuccessful in their appropriate age group, Western NSW Football may allow the club to consider that player trialling for a older age group or within another association.

What happens if my child is selected?

If your child is selected in a WYL team, you will be contacted by the team coach or manager via email or phone and informed.

Each team manager will set up a Whatsapp or Facebook group to facilitate communication between parents and guardians during the WYL season.

Below is a list of basic player requirements:

  • Attend team training – generally 1-2 midweek training sessions per week as set by the coach.
  • Attend WYL games – the WYL season runs for approx. eight weeks across May and June. The number of weeks your team plays depends on the number of teams participating in your age group.
  • Represent Mudgee Gulgong Wolves Football Club to the best of their ability.
  • Demonstrate sportsmanship at all times.
What happens if my child is not selected?

If your child is not selected in a WYL team, you will be contacted by the team coach or manager via email and informed.

Every effort will be made to provide players that are not selected in WYL teams with individual feedback and tips around areas of improvement; however this can be challenging in large groups.

In some age groups the club may be in a position to select development squads that ensure your child remains engaged with playing football and continues to receive high calibre training on a regular basis with the aim of developing and strengthening skills.

What is the cost of playing WYL?

Players must be registered members of the Mudgee Gulgong Wolves Football Club, however there is no additional cost to players to play in the WYL competition beyond the standard club registration costs.

When and where will the WYL games be played?

Each age group has a different schedule of games depending on what teams are participating.

Games will be shared across participating teams and could include Mudgee, Dubbo, Bathurst, Orange, Lithgow and Parkes.

When will I know when my child’s side is playing their WYL games?

The WYL competition draws are developed by Western NSW Football and provided to the club. The club then passes the competition details onto team coaches and managers.

There is no set date for the release of the competition draw – it generally occurs during March each year.

Coaches and Managers are responsible for passing the details of the season onto parents and guardians.

Is travel to and from games organised by the club?

No. Travel to and from WYL games is not organised by the club. Parents are responsible for getting the players to venues and games at the appropriate times.  Teams may wish to consider car-pooling among parents and guardians if required.
