Hello Washington Youth Soccer Family!

These are exciting times for youth soccer in our state, as all regions have been cleared to play outdoor sports–with a few restrictions still in place, see below. Even professional sports will soon be open for spectators, so those of us itching to watch the Sounders and OL Reign in person will be able to do so! See below for an update on the state’s progress on the Roadmap to Recovery and find out what you need to do to get back on the pitch.

If you haven’t signed your young athletes up for soccer yet, what are you waiting for? If you have an existing club, contact them for information on schedules, team information, and more. If not, check out the Find A Club feature on our website to find the right club for you and give them a call today!

This month we also have information on an exciting webinar featuring local pros like Cristian Roldan and Samantha Hiatt from our friends at Washington Legends, info on referee clinics (we need more refs!), “C” License coaching courses, and more!

As always, we thank you for your continued support of youth soccer in our state, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office if you have questions about return to play, or anything else regarding our programming.

Stay safe and we’ll see you on the pitch!

Governor Inslee announced last week that the entire state of Washington was moving to Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery. The only addition that is relevant to youth soccer (as of now) is added below to the various guidance that was introduced in Phase 2.

  • Facial coverings required for all coaches, volunteers and athletes AT ALL TIMES.
  • Outdoor training, practices and competitions allowed outdoors. Maximum 200 people allowed at competitions, including spectators.
  • Check with local authorities regarding spectator limits for specific counties, cities, and venues.
  • Indoor team training, practices, and competitions allowed. For all indoor sports the occupancy of the facility may not exceed 25 percent of the fire code occupancy rating.
  • For outdoor competitions; For facilities or complexes with more than one field or area of play a maximum of 75 people allowed per field or area of play, including spectators. All spectators of different households are to remain physically distant, 6 feet or more, as much as possible. If you location has more restrictive rules than above, make sure to let you opponent know. A location with a single field is still allowed to have 200 max including spectators.
  • Sports guidance will change in Phase 3 to allow in-person spectators at events for the first time in a year. Spectators will be allowed to attend outdoor venues with permanent seating with capacity capped at 25%. The change affects both professional and high school sports, as well as motorsports, rodeos, and other outdoor spectator events. Social distancing and facial covering are still required.

Keep an eye on our Return to Play page for the most up-to-date information.
