Teams are setup to practice 2-3 weeks prior to beginning to play any season.  Teams are typically scheduled to play 2 tournaments per month.  Practices will be a mixture of training on the field and in our home indoor training facility located at 11221 Cutten Rd, Bldg 1, Houston, Texas 77066.  To be tryout for one of our teams, players must be ready to commit to a full year of our program.   Those who participate in other school programs such as football and basketball will be expected to make as many of the practices as they can. The team rosters will be set at 12 players for age groups 13 and younger, with 14 & under team carrying 14 players, and all older teams carrying 16 to 18 players.  For players that elect to leave early, WCE will reserve the right to add players on an as needed basis through private workouts.
