Coronavirus & Youth Soccer in Our State

Dear Washington Youth Soccer family,

We as an organization are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation on a local, state, national, and global level, and doing everything we can to provide information and make decisions in the best interest of our membership and community. Safety is our first priority, and we are following the directives of our federal, state, and local governments as we continue to navigate this crisis. Governor Jay Inslee announced today the immediate closure of all K-12 schools in King, Snohomish, and Pierce Counties until April 24.

Washington Youth Soccer, as a member of US Soccer and US Youth Soccer, is a service agency for 27 associations from all corners of Washington State. In that capacity, Washington Youth Soccer provides a variety of services including player registration, secondary player insurance, risk management, coaching education, and a vibrant Respect campaign. Washington Youth Soccer also operates soccer programming like Elite Player Development, Regional Club League, State Cups, Soccer For Success, and TOPSoccer.

Our staff and board of directors are working to communicate information and assist our member associations where possible. As a member of your local youth soccer association or club, you may receive news on their individual status from them. On our website you can find contact information for your local club, as well as news on some of our programming and the most up-to-date information from local, state, national, and soccer-related authorities: https://washingtonyouthsoccer.org/coronavirus-washington-youth-soccer/

Washington Youth Soccer is dedicated to providing the best youth soccer experience our state has to offer. We will continue to follow the authorities as the issue unfolds, but rest assured that as soon as it is safe to do so, we will resume youth soccer activities under our leadership.

Thanks for your continued support of youth soccer in Washington,

Dan Popp

President, Washington Youth Soccer Board of Directors
