Thank You for a Great Spring Season

It's hard to believe that Spring Soccer is over already, but with temperatures above 90 degrees today, we were all ready to finish and bring on summertime.



Thank you to all parents, players and coaches who helped make this a fun season. Hopefully, all of our players were able to leave the fields today having developed their skills much further than where they were in April. That's really what this program is all about.

Congratulations to our two winners of the Championship games. In the U-11 Division, Team 1 lifted the trophy with a 6-2 win. Over in U-14, the Jaguars gave up their first goals of the season. That's quite an impressive run. They won the Championship by a final of 3-2.

We wish all of our 8th Grade players good luck as they head to high school in the Fall. For them, this was their final time as a player on a WLSC field. We hope you all are able to continue your soccer journey at the next level.

Have a Great Summer Everyone!!


Registration information for our Fall season will be posted soon. If you don't already follow our Facebook page, give it a 'Like' to keep up with the latest information.

Thank you for a very enjoyable Spring 2016 season!!

Congratulations to Brandon Westrick - Class of 2016, Whitmer High School

Washington Local Soccer congratulates Referee Brandon Westrick as he graduates from Whitmer High School this Saturday.



Brandon first joined our organization as a Kindergarten player, and played here until the 3rd Grade. At that point, he decided it was time for better competition, and moved up to travel soccer. His years at Glass City gave him the opportunity to develop the skill set needed for a successful high school career.

While at Whitmer, Brandon played 3 years of Varsity soccer and only his Freshman season on the JV team. He led the Panthers as Captain in his Junior and Senior seasons.

He returned to Washington Local Soccer in 2012 to become a referee. He started on the U-5 division, and quickly worked his way up to the U-14 field. Brandon has been our Lead Referee on that field since the Fall 2014 season.

While at Whitmer, Brandon was involved in the Computer Network Program for two years. He plans to attend Owens Community College in the Fall, where he'll study Wide Area Network Tech.

He is an avid Columbus Crew fan, and attended several matches last season and during their playoff run, including the Final.


Here is what Brandon had to say about his time in Washington Local Soccer:

"Being given the chance to referee on some of the very fields that I've played on makes it very special to me. I hope all the kids in WLSC get the chance to do the same. At Whitmer, my proudest moments were when I was wearing that jersey on the field under the lights in front of all the fans. It's a special feeling being out there and playing with all my friends and teammates. Hearing your name being called on the speaker gets you excited and gives me butterflies in my stomach. It makes me feel like all my hard work, starting at WLSC, has all paid off in that moment" -Brandon Westrick, WLSC Referee, Class of 2016

Washington Local Soccer congratulates Referee Emily Roberts as she graduates from Whitmer High School this Saturday.



Emily first joined our organization as a player while in the Kindergarten/First Grade division. She continued playing from 2nd-5th grade in southern Ohio when her family moved there. She returned to Washington Local Soccer from grades 6-8 when they returned to Northwest Ohio. 

After leaving WLSC as a player, Emily went on to play all four years for the Whitmer Lady Panthers Soccer team. She was on JV for two years, and Varsity her Junior and Senior seasons.

In addition to playing high school soccer, she has also been a volunteer Assistant Coach for WLSC in the U-5 Division, and as has been a Referee since the Fall 2013 season.

Outside of soccer, Emily was very active during her years at Whitmer. She was involved in the following:

  • Was named a BCSN Ace Award recipient in the Fall of 2015

Upon graduating, Emily plans to attend Muskingum University in New Concord, OH this Fall, where she'll study Athletic Training. We wish you the best of luck, Emily!


In Her Own Words


When I asked Emily for the information to write this post, she included the following thought. It reminds us all that youth soccer teaches valuable lessons that are much more important and longer-lasting than wins and losses could ever be.


Here is what Emily had to say about her time in Washington Local Soccer:

"It has been a great opportunity to be involved with Washington Local Soccer as a player, a referee and a Volunteer Coach. My parents signed me up for soccer as a kid because I was always in timeout and needed an outlet for my energy. Playing soccer my first years with WLSC taught me how to focus and gave me the fundamental skills to be able to play at a higher level. Thank you to Kathy, Tom, Summer and Cameron for the amazing amount of time and commitment that they put in to make sure that our community has a program like this." -Emily Roberts, WLSC Referee, Class of 2016
