Dear WAYSC Community,

We hope all of you and your families, and those close to you, are healthy and safe as we all try to navigate these troubled times.

As you know, we took the unusual step of suspending all soccer activities under our jurisdiction originally through the Spring 2020 season. In consideration of the latest Phase 4 guidelines from the Illinois Youth Soccer Association and the IL Department of Public Health, we are extending that suspension through the Fall 2020 season. There will not be a Fall 2020 season.

The health and safety of our players, coaches and families has always been our number one priority of the club. We have been faced with these unfortunate Covid-19 circumstances. We are saddened and share this news with a heavy heart. Rest assured this decision did not come easy. It is our sincere hope that we will all be back together soon in 2021 stronger and better than ever. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding.

For those players that are interested, Hawthorn Woods Elite Soccer will be having a 2020 Fall season and has openings for boys and girls ages 7-13. The birth years are 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. For those U14 girls that aged out this past spring, and if there is enough interest from those players Coach Tom would consider putting together a U15 team. Please contact Coach Tom at 847-909-9729 or go to and register online.

On behalf of the WAYSC Board of Directors, we wish all of you good health and speedy return to normalcy.

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.
