Inclement Weather Policy:
Wide World of Indoor Sports will be open during inclement weather unless there is a state of emergency declared by the governor of Rhode Island. During inclement weather, Wide World of Indoor Sports will be open and all games will run as scheduled. There will be no makeup games due to inclement weather. By all means, if you feel it is unsafe to travel even though we are open, please feel free to stay home. If your team chooses not to come to your game, please call us and let us know you will be forfeiting so we can give a courtesy call to the opposing team.
Youth Soccer: Double-Rostering:
No player is allowed to play on more than one team in the same division.
The team coach will be responsible for giving the field referee player passes (only for players that are present) prior to each game. It is the responsibility of the team coach that the roster is accurate. Any coach found with an illegal player will be suspended from the premises for one full calendar year.
Please be aware that we take recruiting very seriously here at Wide World. This policy is in place to protect the players and their organizations from unwanted solicitations from other clubs and organizations. With that being said, it will also help protect coaches, clubs, and organizations from false accusations. Please read these policies carefully before you attempt to recruit a player or accuse anyone of recruiting here at Wide World of Indoor Sports.

Player Passes (Youth):
During regular season games, coaches are to turn their team’s player passes in to the referee. Referees will hold on to the passes for the duration of the game. In the event of a roster challenge, the office staff will verify all player passes in the possession of the referee. If a player does not have a pass present or is using an illegal pass the game will result in a forfeit. In addition, both the coach and player will receive a suspension of 1 game. If a second instance of this situation occurs, the coach and player will both be suspended for one calendar year and the team will forfeit the remainder of their scheduled games, including playoffs.
During playoff games, coaches are to turn their passes in to the referee and then line up their players in front of their team bench. The referee will check each pass to the player’s face as well as the team roster. Any player without a pass or not on the team roster may not play and may not sit on the bench.
