Coaches should recruit volunteers from your team to help out. Recreational soccer is a volunteer organization and the success relies on volunteering efforts:
Coaches should be responsible for coaching and developing players, everything else needs volunteer assistance.
U11-U19: A uniform kit is required to be ordered and paid for all players. CLICK HERE for U11-U19 uniform ordering information and instructions.
When do practices and games begin?
Practices kick off the first week of August. Games will kick off in early September typically after Labor day.
What day and times are practices and games?
Where do the teams practice and play games?
Teams generally practice at a soccer field located in the city/club they registered in(i.e. a player who lives in Redmond and registered to play in Fall City club will practice in Fall City).
The specific field location for a game will depend on the division the player is in and whether they are playing a HOME or AWAY game. SnVYSA HOME field locations by club can be found on our website at Fields.
U6-U10 division games: these teams do not travel outside of the clubs within SnVYSA. SnVYSA tries to keep travel time to minimum for the teams in the younger age divisions.
U11-U12 division games: some travel is involved for AWAY games to neighboring Eastside cities; Bellevue, Issaquah, Sammamish, and farthest Mercer Island.
U13-U19 division games: some travel involved for AWAY games to cities of soccer leagues that are a part of District 2.
How many games does the season include?
Every age division plays a 10 game season. The U9 and U10 teams will play 8 games during the regular season with 2 final games in the SnVYSA U9/U10 end of season tournament which is typically the first or second weekend in November.
U11 - U19 Teams: Teams may participate in the WSYSA Rec Cup which begins in mid October.

To view referee assignments for U9-U19 games, coaches must access the tools where the game schedules are uploaded.
IMPORTANT: A parent volunteer must be recruited by every coach to be used as a back up "parent referee" in the event there is no referee assigned to a home game. The home team is responsible for the referee. It is to the coaches advantage to have a volunteer “parent referee”.
Respect The Referees
SnVYSA has a zero-tolerance policy related to bad behavior towards referees:
