As always, parents have the final say on whether your athlete participates in practices. If you feel it is unsafe outside, you are permitted to withhold your athlete with no consequence. WYSO only asks that you please notify your coaches of your decision.




The WYSO offers a diverse football program to suit all ages and abilities. Our flag football program combines players from grades 1-3, in a friendly, equal-play league, running from late August to early-October. All games and practices are at Firemen's Park.

Our tackle program begins with a combined 4th and 5th grade league which competes against Columbus, Johnson Creek and Jefferson. Our sixth, seventh and eighth grades field individual teams and compete in the DC&J conference. Home games are played at the Waterloo High School facilities and the season runs from mid-August to mid-October.
