WSSL Commissioner, Dana DiPrima, was honored with a WESTY Award. The WESTY (West Side Sprit Thanks You) Awards recognize the special contributions of individuals to the West Side community. Recipients include organizational and civic leaders who work specifically within the neighborhood and West Side residents who make special contributions to the greater New York City community.
The requirements for a WESTY are simple. The awards go to New Yorkers who live or work in the community and whose accomplishments help improve the neighborhood. Nominations are made by prominent West Siders, by Spirit readers and by our editorial staff.

West Side Soccer League has a long history in Riverside Park. This is where we play the majority of our games -- Fall and Spring -- and host our free skills clinics. It is also where we spend a lot of our time, energy and donations to build new fields, repair exisiting fields and renovate a field house.
