New this season, all WBSA players can try on uniforms before we finalize the order to get the size they want. We are partnering with Soccer Post in Round Rock on uniforms. They've ordered a set of example sizes of jerseys for players and coaches to try on for size.
All U8 and younger teams will be getting High 5 kits and need to ask for the High 5 samples to try on.
All U9 and older teams will be getting Joma kits and need to ask for the Joma samples to try on. When updating Got Soccer with your preferred size, also update the preferred # you want on the back of your jersey. If two players request the same number, one will need to pick a different number and will be contacted.
And, for our WBSA coaches, this season we will be purchasing nice, white Combi (by Joma) jerseys with the WBSA logo on the front pocket area and "COACH" on the back. You can also try on jersey samples at Soccer Post in Round Rock and pick the size you want. Just ask for the Joma samples to try on. You, too, will then need to update Got Soccer with your preferred jersey size.
If you miss these dates, WBSA will do our best to fulfill the sizes but we can't guarantee you'll get the exact size you want. WBSA must place uniform orders well before the season starts so that we've got uniforms in time for the first game. As such, we'll order the sizes requested via Got Soccer and then make size estimates for the rest of the players and coaches.
So, take a quick trip to Soccer Post in Round Rock at the corner of IH-35 and FM 620 in the shopping center with Sprouts, McDonalds, Starbucks and Kaleidoscope Toys and try on the jerseys! Soccer Post's hours are M – Sat 10AM to 7PM and Sunday from 11AM to 5PM.
If you've already registered this season and just need to update the jersey size, email the preferred size info to firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE the deadlines noted above.
And, not sure the age bracket of your player (and whether they need to try on the High 5 or Joma jerseys)? More info here: http://wellsbranchsoccer.weebly.com/blog/soccer-age-group-mathematics
Wells Branch is full of summer fun with swimming, tennis, soccer, basketball, camps and just riding and hiking around the trails. This summer you will see a new addition to that summer fun with GaGa ball pits located at the recreation center and in Katherine Fleischer park close to the volley ball courts.
Gaga is a fast paced, high energy sport played in an octagonal pit. Ga-ga (literally 'touch-touch' in Hebrew) is a variant of dodgeball. The game combines dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees. The object, of course, is to be the last person standing. The more players the better!
The Wells Branch MUD Parks and Recreation team learned about this game from families returning from summer camps saying GaGa ball was the most fun they had while on vacation! This game became popular among Jewish camps during the 1970's and has seen a huge resurgence recently at camps, schools, and youth activity centers outside of the Jewish community. To some it is known as Israeli Dodgeball, Octo-Ball, or Panda Ball. It is commonly believed that the game was brought to the US Jewish summer camps by Israeli camp counselors.
Gaga Ball is a fun, easy game to learn and play. The basic object of the game is to eliminate your opponents by striking the ball and having it hit them below the knee (or waist) while trying to avoid being hit yourself. The game can be a one on one match up game or simply a larger group of individuals each playing against the group. To increase the fun and action for larger groups, often a second ball can be put into play as well. As with any playground game, the actual details of the GaGa Ball game rules will vary from location to location.
Have a great summer!
WBSA is participating in the annual Wells Branch Fourth Fest Parade and we’re looking for kids to join us on the float. If your kids are interested in joining us, have them wear their practice jersey, game jersey, or other soccer gear and meet us at the parade line-up in front of the Community Center on Klattenhoff Dr. by 9:30 on the 4th. Seating is limited and we will fill the float on a first come, first served basis. We may also need help decorating the float that morning and possibly supervising kids on the float.
