  • Can I pay in cash?
    Not at this moment, all bookings must be made in advance online.
  • So what is this soccer business about?
    Round ball, goal posts (maybe jumpers if you don’t have those) and players. Soccer is one of the fastest growing sports in the US and enjoyed by millions around the world. USA men’s team played in the first ever World Cup in 1930 however the women’s team is the only one to win the World Cup. Three times!!

    Yes there are bathrooms in the building at The Post. Outdoors each of the parks has a restroom available

  • Are there changing rooms?
    There are no designated changing rooms at any location
  • I see some of the kids with WSC shirts, are they compulsory and how do I get one of those?
