Welcome to the Wauconda Area Youth Soccer Club (WAYSC), a Hawthorn Woods Elite Soccer Club partner. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, volunteer-based recreational soccer club.  We offer soccer programs for all skill levels for players ages 4 to 14. We provide a fun, safe environment where players learn the game of soccer, the value of being a part of a team and competing for a common goal. Our players will be instructed by a combination of volunteer coaches and professional trainers who will instruct on the technical, tactical, and philosophical aspects of soccer geared towards the age and skill level of each player and team.
