The Wayne County, Mississippi, Soccer League and the Fields of Waynesboro need volunteers to help with the spring soccer season. From concessions to merchandising and from helping with parking to lending a hand in setting up the fields and goals … there’s a place for everyone.
All games are being played on Saturday between Feb. 23 and May 11 and should be completed no later than 2 p.m., depending on time constraints and weather.
There will be no games during Spring Break (the weekends of March 9 and 16) and Easter (April 20). If you are interested or have additional questions, send a message to the Wayne County Soccer League. This spring’s soccer offering is the first of many ways we are making the Fields of Waynesboro a first-class family-friendly entertainment and recreation facility.
Soccer is one of the fastest growing sports around the globe, and Wayne County, Mississippi, is riding the tide of enthusiasm for the year-round activity. For the first time ever, our area will have a spring soccer season (with Saturday games only) running from February 23 through May 11.
The Fields of Waynesboro will serve as the venue for spring soccer, which will be under the direction of the Wayne County, Mississippi, Soccer League.
Our united goal is to see continued success while offering a fun and learning experience for all children in Waynesboro and neighboring communities within Wayne County and for our friends in adjacent Mississippi and Alabama counties.
Soccer promotes valuable life skills, including:
The Fields of Waynesboro and Wayne County, Mississippi, Soccer League work in tandem to coordinate and facilitate practice and play for the spring youth soccer program. The Wayne County, Mississippi, Soccer League is a non-profit comprised of community leaders, soccer enthusiasts and family members with participating children. All fees pay for expenses in running the spring league, to make improvements to the new sports complex and purchase equipment used to play the game. There are no league leaders paid for their efforts ... making this a labor of love for children and the game.
We can't do this alone. Please consider becoming a volunteer with the spring soccer organization.

The Fields of Waynesboro soccer fields were constructed in late 2018
The Fields of Waynesboro is the 21st Century recreational sports facility for Waynesboro and Wayne County, Mississippi, as well as surrounding communities and counties in Southeast Mississippi and Southwest Alabama. Located on Azalea Drive (Mississippi Highway 184) in Waynesboro, this almost 90-acres site will ultimately become home to eight baseball-softball fields, seven soccer fields, walking tracks and playgrounds to name some of the amenities planned. Thanks to the financial generosity and in-kind construction support of community benefactors, businesses and industries, two regulation soccer fields have already been constructed with more improvements on the way. We invite you to join in our efforts to build something unique in Southeast Mississippi -- a venue that will draw together families and communities.
TEAM W -- an acronym for the Together Energizing and Motivating Waynesboro organization -- will hold its 15th annual Whistle Stop Festival in the historic downtown business district on Saturday, April 13. The festival will feature arts and crafts, a 5K run-walk, a classic car and motorcycle show, food and live entertainment. For more on the festival or to sign up as a vendor, visit TEAM W's Facebook page.
The LionFest organization has plans for a youth rally and community movie night beginning at 6 p.m., Saturday, March 16 at the Waynesboro City Auditorium on Benton Street. Brother Matt Olson will be the featured speaker for the rally and worship will be led by local youth. The movie for the month, to follow the youth service, will be "Vanished." A concession stand will be available during the event. Donations will be accepted at the door to help with the upcoming "Fields of Faith" Christian concert to be held at the Fields of Waynesboro sports complex on May 4.
More than $68,000 in cash donations have been raised since May 1, 2018, to begin development of The Fields of Waynesboro.
The Wayne County Recreational Sports Authority and the Wayne County Economic Development Foundation have spearheaded the effort to build The Fields of Waynesboro. Long-term plans call for the construction of eight baseball-softball fields, up to seven soccer fields, walking tracks and playgrounds. The Wayne County Economic Development Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is accepting donations for the development of this recreational facility. Tax-deductible donations can be made to the Foundation in person at 610 Azalea Drive in Waynesboro (across from the south entrance to the Courthouse) or by mail to Wayne County Economic Development Foundation, 610 Azalea Drive, Waynesboro, MS 39367.
