2020 has been quite the year for us all, and we thank you yet again for your continued support for Washington Youth Soccer. We continue to lobby for a safe return to play for youth soccer in our state, and we hope that the new year provides that.
Whether you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind gift for that special soccer fan in your life, or you’d just like to donate to support access to the game across Washington, we welcome any and all contributionsas we finish off 2020.
We’d also like to congratulate the Seattle Sounders for their excellent season in Major League Soccer, even though they weren’t able to retain their title in last weekend’s MLS Cup final. In a year full of difficulties, they managed to nearly go the distance–with the help, we should note, of a number of WYS alumni. Our partnership with the Sounders is a long and fruitful one, and we can’t wait to see how Schmetzer’s team does next season.
Happy Holidays to our entire Washington Youth Soccer family, and we hope that the new year brings joy, peace, and soccer to us all.
