The mission of the Cape Cod Women's Soccer League is to provide an opportunity for women, aged 17 and over, to play competitive soccer on the Cape. The league is for experienced players, but women of all levels are invited to participate.
The CCWSL hopes to promote the enjoyment of the sport of soccer and to contribute to the growth in popularity of the sport among women on Cape Cod.
Coaches will play all registered players in each game. Playing time will be fair while still fielding a competitive team. Fair does not always mean equal. Playing time may vary per person and per game. If a team has no coach or team rep, players will decide their own playing time. Players should make a commitment to attend at least 75% of the games per season. If a player misses more than 3 games without a reasonable excuse, playing time could be lessened at the discretion of the coach. Coaches will reward players who are committed to the team.
There will be no tryouts to enter the league. Teams will be determined based on team preferences from your registration. However, if your registration comes in after your prefered roster is full, you will be asked to take a position on a nearby team which is still in need of players. Each team will have a minimum of 11 players and a maximum of 22. Players may be added as season progresses if roster drops to less than 17 players due to injury or official withdrawal from the team.
All players must be officially registered, paid, and waiver signed before participating in any matches. Official online registration will close the day before the start of the season. However, players can still register after the start of the season but must contact the league director in order to do so. Players registering after the start of the season, shall expect to pay the full registration fee and are not guaranteed preference of team. A player must participate in a minimum of three regular season games in order to participate in playoffs.
While the level of play will be competitive, the league will not tolerate unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of any player or coach. Any intentional physical contact, beyond the level of fair play (with intent to injure) will not be tolerated. Inappropriate, abusive or foul language will not be tolerated.
