SYSA Legend Jason Jones Passes

SYSA Legend Jason Jones, who contributed so much to the Shorelake Club, SYSA, and Washington Youth Soccer, passed away this week. Jason was a cornerstone for his club, and gave much of his time and energy to promote the game of soccer and assist kids in learning to love and play the game.

Jason's memorial service will be Saturday, May 5, 11am at the Lake Forest Park Presbyterian Church. Our best wishes go out to his spouse, Marilyn.

Fall 2017 Citywide League Game Rules

You can find all the rules, including any changes for 2017, on the ADMINSITRATION/Rules and Bylaws page, or by clicking here.

Reminder: Dogs Aren't Allowed on Soccer Fields

Most of us love dogs, but they don't belong on soccer fields. There are lots of reasons for this: damage to the field, fouling the surface, risk of infections to players, nuisance and distration to participants. But the main reason SYSA reminds you to leave your dog at home is that both Seattle and Shoreline municipal codes prohibit dogs on playfields. Please respect the law and keep your dog off the soccer fields our kids play on. Thank you!

Soccer Goal Safety Is Everyone's Responsibility!!!

SYSA is committed to safety. Coaches, parents, players -- please help us make our soccer fields safe places for our kids. Soccer goals should always be weighted and anchored, both when in use and especially when not in use. Never let children play or climb on goals. Follow this link for our SYSA policy on goal safety.
