#WeAreCascade We have a long, strong, and proud history of soccer in the valley! Established in 1990, Cascade FC is the Premier and Select Club soccer program under SnVYSA and offers year-round soccer to families in the Snoqualmie Valley and surrounding communities. Our goal is to develop every player to their full potential, giving them the understanding, guidance and confidence to perform at their greatest. We set out to build teams that play attractive, strong, attacking soccer. We offer advance technical, tactical, physical and mental/social year-round soccer training. Ultimately, we create a culture that players, parents, coaches, fans, referees and the community can feel proud to be a part of.

Tryout Schedule and Tryout Registration Links: Tryouts page

Tryouts Fee: $20.00 (non-refundable)

Tryouts Info: Tryouts are roughly last week of April through the second week of May (Feb for HS aged boys teams). Your player will attend two 1.5-hour sessions with their gender/birthyear. Tryout schedule is TBD and will be posted as registration opens. Registration is by player birth year. Taking our player development model into consideration, it is not advised, however if trying out as "play up", final placement criteria need to be met:

  • U9 and U12: Player must have placed in the top 5.
  • U13 thru U14: Players must have placed in the top half of the total number of placers taken onto a team.
  • U15+: Coach's discretion.

Day of Tryout: Check in will begin approximately 30 mins prior to session. Players need to come generically dressed (no club team uniform pieces or warm-ups, or anything that would identify a player with club). Please bring water and a clearly marked soccer ball (U9-U12 = #4, U13+ = #5). Please dress in layers. Shin guards (fully covered by socks) and molded soccer cleats are required. No jewelry allowed on field (including newly pierced ears/rings)…not even covered. Parents are welcome to stay and observe but need to stay outside of fencing and refrain from cheering, comments, etc. Our purpose is to provide a neutral and objective environment for every participant.
