World Class - NEW YORK - If your child plays with WCFC - NY the answer is NO. Most of the leagues that the NY teams compete in (National Premier League, ECNL and USSF Development Academy) do not permit double-carding. So as a club , largely based on the rules of the leagues we play in, we do not allow double-carding.
World Class - NEW JERSEY (Waldwick & Teaneck) - If your child plays for WCFC - Waldwick or WCFC - Teaneck, the answer is YES, subject to approval of your head coach and compliance with the WCFC's policy.

What are the different levels of programs within World Class - New York and World Class - New Jersey ?
|World Class FC - New York
||World Class FC - New Jersey
Classic Level (includes Orangetown teams)
|Development Level (includes Orangetown teams)
I understand World Class - New York has two levels above the Development Program for players in the Elite and Premier program. If I attend tryouts for the Elite team will I automatically be considered for the Premier team ?
Yes. If you attend the Elite tryouts and you do not receive an invitation to a team, you will automatically be considered for the Premier team. In addition, if you attend the Premier team tryouts and you do not receive an invitation, you will automatically be considered for the Orangetown based Classic team. If you wish to attend tryout sessions for more than one level of play, you can certainly do that. If you do not attend different tryout sessions for the different levels, you will automatically be considered for more than one level of play / team. The same process applies moving upwards. For example, if you attend the Premier program tryouts, you may receive an invitation to the Elite program team.
The above does not apply to World Class - New Jersey as this program will have one single team in each age group at a level which is comprable to the Development Program at WCFC - NY and the Premier Program.
