SPARING IN WESA
Sparing for other teams is part of the WESA players experience for novice and more experienced players.
It is important to remember that all league coaches are part of the the WESA Coaching Team. We play with each other as a part of our community and come together in the sprit of true sportsmanship. There is an expectation that teams will select approprately skilled spares to replace the skill set of the absent team members. Coaching teams must ensure that they meet this expectation. Please notify the other coach as to which of your players will be missing, and with whom you are planning to replace them. A popular and effective method of finding other WESA members to spare has been the use of the league Facebook page.
