WSA encourages all our travel teams to enter one tournament per season (one in the fall, one in the spring). Some of the more popular ones are the Londonderry Labor Day Tournament, the Nashua World Cup Columbus Day Tournament and the Capitol Columbus Day Tournament in Concord. In the spring, Amherst sponsors a Memorial Day Tournament. There are also a number of Jamborees for the younger groups, including the Hampstead Halloween Jamboree. However, some teams may opt to travel to Massachusetts, Maine or elsewhere for tournament play. WSA will cover the cost of one fall and one spring tournament entry fee or two jamborees per season.
Be sure to notify Dan Pascarella (
) when you enter so that WSA can submit payment. Coaches and/or Team Managers are responsible for filling out the entry forms.
The WSA Coaching File was designed by Challenger Sports British Soccer in partnership with WSA. The file was compiled by former Challenger coaches, Jamie Kent, Tom Falconer, and Andrew Coupe. The aim of this file is to educate Windham's volunteer travel and recreational level soccer coaches. It provides the coaches with a variety of interesting, fun and practical drills.
