Gearing up for cold weather

Spring sure feels far away with the temperatures we’ve been having lately. As we get ready to kick off our spring season, make sure you’ve got the right gear to keep you warm on the field! Check out the chart below for suggestions on how to stay warm while being active outdoors.

In addition to layering while you’re playing, you’ll want to make sure to keep an extra layer / coat on the sidelines for when you’re subbing, take extra time to warm up to avoid pulled muscles and remember to stay hydrated, which can be a challenge when it’s cold because your body won’t tell you to drink as often.

Be smart and have fun!

New website!

Welcome to our new website! We wanted to make things easier for you to access on all devices while still automating a lot of our behind-the-scenes processes. We will still use our old site (League Apps) to have players register for our seasons, set the schedules for our games, manage the standings and send emails. This new interface will be more mobile-friendly and allow you to access all information in one place. There is now a main page for CWSL and one for Classic Gold – these pages have details for the current and upcoming seasons, field locations, rules for the league and information about our sponsors.

Once a season starts, there will be sub-pages for the league schedule and standings. These pages will be available on the top menu under the season page (i.e. CWSL >Spring 2017 Season > CWSL Schedule or CWSL Standings).

You’ll still receive email notifications with all of our announcements as well as reminders for your upcoming games.
