Registration for our 2014 Fall Season begins on June 1st!!


2014 FALL SOCCER SEASON • Coming Soon!

Program Overview

  • WSSC is proud to offer exciting programs for recreational players, ages 5 and older. A complete description of our programs is available at http://www.westseattlesoccer.org/Programs
  • Coed U-06 and U-07. This age group plays games on Sunday afternoons in West Seattle. All teams & coaches receive weekly training by Master Coaches prior to games, which is a great benefit to coaches and participants. Click on the link to learn more about our Master Coach Program.
  • U-08. At U-08, players are assigned to teams by gender. Games are played on Saturdays in West Seattle and the Highline area in the Highline Soccer Association (HSA) league. Teams typically practice once a week.
  • U-09 to U-11. Teams in this age group play on Saturdays and participate in the HSA League. Teams typically practice once or twice a week.
  • Pre-season Jamboree (FREE with Fall Registration) for U-08 to U-11 teams. The 9th Annual WSSC Jamboree (separate registration event) is held the weekend prior to the first league game. More information will be available on the Jamboree page.
  • U-12 to U-19. Most WSSC teams U-12 and above (and some U-11 teams) will be participating in the SYSA League this fall thanks to a League Intertie Agreement that has been reached between the Seattle Youth Soccer Assocition (SYSA) and the West Seattle Soccer Club. The agreement was made to reduce burdensome travel requirements for WSSC teams that have traditionally been compelled to participate in the District 3 League to find adequate like competition. Games will be played on either Saturday or Sunday -- to learn more, please visit the League Intertie page.
  • SYSA City Tournament. As part of the intertie agreement, WSSC teams participating in the intertie league will have the option to enter the City Tournament. Games start the Monday after Thanksgiving and are played for 20 days (weeknights and weekends) with the final on Saturday, December 21st. Refer to the tournament FAQ (pdf) for more information.
  • WYS Recreation Cup. WSSC teams (U-11 and older) may opt to participate in the Washington Youth Soccer (WYS) Rec Cup instead of the City Tournament. Rec Cup games typically begin late October and the finals are early December. Last year's schedule is posted our our tournament page.
  • Friday Night Camps. We will offer camps in September and October as separate registration events. Learn more by viewing the Friday Night Camp Page.

Washington Youth Soccer (WYS) requires our Association to produce a player card for every participant on full-sided teams (U-12 and older) and some U-11 teams. Our registrar and age group coordinators are responsible to verify player data and assign players to teams before player cards can be ordered.

Coaches and Volunteers

Whether you are a parent considering coaching for the first time, or an experienced player with years of coaching experience, we believe that providing practical information, user friendly tools, and ongoing support to strengthen our coaches is the surest way to continue to improve the quality of our soccer programs and ensure enjoyment for all.

Mandatory Coaches Meetings -- It is our expectation that ALL West Seattle Soccer Club Coaches will attend the mandatory meeting associated with their age group. Team equipment and uniforms are distributed at these meetings. Please plan to attend!

  • Coed U-06 & U-07 teams: Thursday, August 14th, 6:30-8:00pm, Grace Church, 10323 28th Ave. SW

Referees

Referees play a critical role in the success of our WSSC programs. It was wonderful to have so many new referees serving this spring! As our Club continues to grow so does our need for licensed referees. If you are willing to serve a referee, please plan to attend a licensing clinic this summer. Our referee association (Trias -http://www.triassoccercentral.org/) will be hosting several clinics this summer. Please check their website for details. A complete list of certification clinics for referees can be found on the Washington Referee Committee site at http://www.wareferees.org.

Summer Soccer Camps

We are sponsoring a fantastic summer soccer camp Aug. 11-15 which will be facilitated by our partners at UK International Soccer. We have also listed other camps in the West Seattle area in case these weeks don't fit your summer schedule.

A complete list of camps and registration links are available on our Camps and Player Development page

Keep Informed!

Please check our website for the latest updates and our Facebook page, which is a great tool to link to soccer news and events. All events are posted on our Club Calendar.

Help Wanted - Current Volunteer Needs

Current Volunteer Needs:

  • Volunteer Coaches! - All WSSC teams are lead by a volunteer coach.  You do not need to be a soccer expert, former player, or experienced coach to serve players and families in our community.  Will you please consider sharing your time and talents to help us provide the best possible soccer experience for every participant. 
    The WSSC provides WSSC Events
    - WSSC holds events throughout the year including:  WSSC Open House; Coaches Meetings; Referee Clinics; Locker Inventory, Merchandise Sales and Uniform Distribution.  Volunteers are needed for set up/clean up of events, selling WSSC gear, distributing uniforms and coaching materials among other duties.
  • Miscellaneous - Want to volunteer but not certain how, what or when?  Add your name to this list and we will put you on an "on-call" basis.  We will contact you prior to our volunteer opportunities and see if you are available to help.
  • Referees - Referees are a very important part of the WSSC experience. Both youths and adults are needed and WSSC provides reimbursement for referee certification (for those who successfully pass the course). Once trained as a referee, you self-assign to games through a local referee chapter. The WSSC referee assignor is available to answer questions and provides support. This is a great way to learn more about soccer and earn money while making the club run smoothly.

Complete job descriptions for many volunteer roles are available by downloading the WSSC Constitution and By-laws. Please share your time and talents to help us create the best possible soccer experience for all of our West Seattle families. If you have a passion for youth sports and are interested in serving with our leadership team, please contact us.
