Fall soccer registration is open and I'm as excited as ever to get our community back on our fields and playing again. As a dad and as an ambassador of the sport, nothing is more important than seeing kids playing soccer again, competing to be their best, while their families cheer them on.

This Fall we anticipate we'll be playing soccer all across Seattle. Restriction on outdoor activities is shifting and practices, games, and the tournament should be back next season. Our Association is working hard to ensure Soccer can return for everyone and we're working with the state, schools, and parks to make sure we are following all guidelines and protocols.

This season we are pleased to announce an additional all-gender division for our U8/U9 Mod Intraleague and will play against other all-gender teams from Ballard, Woodland, and Lake City. Many of our parents have children that identify as gender non-binary and these new teams offer a place for every player whether you want to play with your best friend, or prefer a cross-gender team for any reason. Let us know during registration which division you wish to play. These teams aren’t possible without parent and community volunteers, so please consider becoming an SCQA coach

We can't wait to see you this fall and are excited to see you all return.
