WELCOME

If you're just getting started with the club—or even the sport of soccer—we're here to help. We've put together this helpful resource to help you decide if soccer in Queen Anne is right for you.

 

"U" DESIGNATION

The “U” essentially stands for “under.” Players are placed on teams based upon their age, as of July 31st of the current year. Players can play on an older level team (for instance, a 14-year-old can play on a U16 team – this is referred to as “playing-up”). Except as mentioned above, players cannot play on a younger team level.

PROGRAMS

MINI PROGRAM – U6/U7

With an emphasis on having fun, we'll introduce soccer basics through small-sided games on small fields. Expect kids to learn skills like dribbling, running with the ball, and passing.

MOD SOCCER – U8/U9

Teamwork skills are developed through the addition of more players on the field, introducing goal keeping, and friendly competition against other neighboring clubs.

MOD SOCCER – U10/U12 

We continue to add more players on the field with a focus on team play tactics. Cross-club competition is introduced and culminates with an end of season city-wide tournament.

ASSOCIATION SOCCER (REC) - U13—19

This is the Seattle Youth Soccer Association’s Recreational program—full field soccer, competition against 13 neighborhood clubs, and an advanced program called Seattle United.

Soccer socks are long and intended to cover the whole shin guard. A personal soccer ball is recommended (size 3 for U6-U8, size 4 for U9-U12, and size 5 for U13-U19).

SCQA outfits each player with a team Jersey.
