Xanadu (Club Name), Volcanos (Club Nickname), 2008 (Birth Year), B (Gender-Boys), Lava Rocks (Descriptor)

                                                     Xanadu Volcanos 2008B Lava Rocks

2020 Roster Sizes

Important Changes to Roster Sizes Approved by NYSWYSA

The Board of Directors petitioned the New York State West Youth Soccer Association to consider a modification to the USYSA Player Development Intitiatives with respect to roster sizes. The League's request was granted and beginning with the 2020 Play Year the following limits will be in effect:


U8-U10           Team Roster 16           Game Day Roster 13

U11-U12         Team Roster 18           Game Day Roster 16

U13-U19         Team Roster 22           Game Day Roster 18

The B&WNYJSL Board of Directors hopes that the increased team roster sizes at U8 through U12 will give clubs the flexibility they need in properly forming competitive teams with an eye to future needs. If you have any questions please contact League administration.

Project Play Western New York Community Conversations 2019:

Building Stronger Youth Soccer Leagues.


BWNYJSL has partnered with Project Play WNY to offer member clubs a voice and an opportunity to be involved in a first of its kind initiative in WNY. This initiative is focused on building the organizational capacity to support high-quality youth sports organizations. The BWNYJSL/PPWNY capacity building initiative is free, and mini-grants will be awarded to leagues that participate. 

You are probably most familiar with Project Play Western New York through our recent “Don’t Retire Kid” campaign. But our organization is not just raising awareness of the 84% of WNY children who don’t get enough activity, we envision a community in which all children have the opportunity to be active through sport! That means not only building awareness, but also providing the guidance and training necessary to develop the infrastructure, resources, and leadership to create vibrant and sustainable youth sports organizations.


On Tuesday, November 12 at 6:00 pm at the Community Foundation of Greater Buffalo we will begin this conversation. We hope to gain your input as a leader in your sport and to convey to you the opportunities available through the “Youth Sports Organization, Self-Assessment” pilot. Dinner will be served and free parking is available.


We hope you can join us!  Please register by clicking here.
