The Big Walnut Soccer Association (BWSA) is a non-profit recreational league for children ages 4-14 in the Big Walnut area and surrounding communities. The BWSA is dedicated to the education of soccer and good sportsmanship in a fun, community environment. Players are taught the value of hard work, perseverance, teamwork and respect. We strive to create a positive, energetic learning experience for children and parents as well.
The BWSA is a totally volunteer organization and we are constantly in need of parents of younger children to join as coaches and board members and grow with their children and the league.
The BWSA has two seasons each year. The Fall Season runs from August through October with the application deadline in early July, while the Spring Season runs from March through May with the application deadline in early February. Participants must both register and pay the appropriate fee for each season separately.
