The Players' Tour
The WFT prides itself on being the “Players’ Tour”, where youth players have complete freedom of futbol expression during match play. Similar to pickup or street soccer game, there will be NO adults telling the players what to do or how to do it.
This may be initially challenging for our younger participants (particularly those who have been given few opportunities to play or think for themselves); however, when they start to figure out the game, the results will be tremendous. For the players that relish the opportunity to play pickup soccer, but are often not given the opportunity, our brand of the 3v3 game will be pure fun.

Season V News:

The WFT is committed to growing its 6v6 game for HS (U15-17) and Adults (18-50+) and in so doing, the WFT is opening up its 6v6 State and World Cups to any teams. This means that teams may register without having played in a previous WFT event. Teams entering a WFT 6v6 State Cup must enter the event in the state where the team resides (or the nearest one geographically if their state does host a state cup.

Last year, the WFT made big strides with its No Coaching Rule thanks to the efforts of the parents and coaches to restrain themselves from directing the players on the field. There were, however, abuses of the rule in the U6-10 divisions where coaches were allowed to communicate with players when the ball was out of play. Too often, players in the U9/U10 ages who possessed cognitive abilities to make decisions were constantly told what to do each time the ball left the field.

The WFT is, therefore making minor adjustments to the rule by lowering the age to U6-U8 and only allowing coaches to guide their players when the ball leaves the end-line for a goal kick or after a goal is scored.
But they will also have a 1-minute TO at the 5-minute mark in each half.
