Our twelve neighborhood clubs provide rich player opportunities for players at all levels. SYSA soccer programs are affordable, well organized, and fun for all kids!

  • Extremely affordable recreational play that serves players from the youngest ages through high school

  • Player-skills training and coach education through the neighborhood clubs.

  • Citywide play providing more diverse and level-appropriate competition for ages 10-18

  • Fall league, season-ending city tournament, and optional spring play program

  • Longstanding relationships for field access through parks and schools in Seattle and Shoreline

  • Additional training programs, camps and academies for recreational players and coaches furnished by Seattle United, the advanced-development club for SYSA

  • Access to higher levels of competition through Seattle United and SYSA's relationship with Washington Youth Soccer, including the highest-level youth leagues in the state.

  • 50+ years of knowledge and experience in delivering well-organized soccer programs through a largely volunteer organization and locally focused, neighborhood-based clubs.
