Recreational Soccer

Player selection for teams may not be based on ability or by any tryout process. The Association is Seattle Youth Soccer Association (SYSA) which consists of 12 neighborhood clubs and an advanced program called Seattle United. Within each age group older than U10, there are three divisions: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The coaches and the SYSA registrars determine the division level for each team. Teams stay together year to year and may move up or down a division each season.

FIFA rules apply to this level of play as amended by SYSA.

 

Practices

Team Practices will start in late August. The practice time is determined by the volunteer coaches who make every effort to find a time suitable for all players on the team.

 

What is needed to play?

  • Shirt/Jersey (provided by the club)
  • Shin guards (worn under socks)
  • Socks (must cover the shin guards)
  • Shorts (should be close to the same color as the other players)
  • Soccer Cleats (no metal studs, no toe cleat)
  • Soccer Ball

*Ages for Soccer – SYSA Recreational Clubs use a “school year” based age system to build teams. “AGE” is that of the player as of July 31 of the current year. Teams and ages are referred to as U (under), then an age. For example 10 year olds play on U11 teams.
