WWPSA offers teenagers (13 to 18 year olds - must be 13 by June 1 for the opportunity to serve as Big Brothers and Sisters. Big Brothers and Sisters help teach the younger players how to play soccer and assist adult coaches on Saturday mornings and weekday evenings. Big Brothers and Sisters can either:
