Fall 2021 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Fall 2021 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

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.

New All-Gender Divisions for Queen Anne Youth Soccer Players

New All-Gender Divisions for Queen Anne Youth Soccer Players

Beginning in the Fall 2021 season, we’re excited to introduce all-gender team options for our U6 - U9 in-house leagues, alongside our neighbor clubs of Ballard, Woodland, and Lake City. For our players who identify as gender non-binary, or players who would prefer playing on an all-gender team for any reason, these teams are a great option for them to play soccer this fall while creating a healthy atmosphere for all our players to develop as people. If you have any questions about team placement for your player, contact us. We recognize each player's situation is different and we are here to help.

Our U6 & U7 players will play games with other Queen Anne teams on Saturdays, and our U8 & U9 teams will compete with teams within the clubs of Ballard, Queen Anne, Woodland, and Lake City. Teams will be organized by Girl, Boy, and All-Gender and will play in their respective divisions.

All our teams are driven by volunteer coaches. In addition to our Soccer coaching materials, we will provide information and materials more specific to gender identity and expression so that our coaches have confidence with the terminology and background to these issues.

How registration works: Once in the registration process, we will ask if you would like to play on a Boy, Girl, or All-Gender team. Select one and complete registration. We will try to place players on teams based on this selection.

Our Registration for Fall Leagues runs May 8th - July 4 or until teams are full. Join us for an amazing soccer season.

Fall Soccer is On!

Open Goal

Queen Anne Soccer families,

I wanted to provide you with the latest update on the status of fall soccer. Queen Anne Soccer Club will be offering soccer this fall, starting Monday September 28th. As King County is not expected to enter Phase 3 until mid-October at the earliest, SYSA has canceled the Fall 2020 soccer season so there will be no games this season.

As a club and with the help of our volunteer coaches, we will instead provide a skills program that meets the guidelines for youth soccer, based on age group, focusing on no-contact fundamentals like dribbling, passing and juggling.

Please note: with this changed format, we have decided to cancel our Mini program (U6/U7).

Please fill out THIS SURVEY and let us know if you are going to Opt-in or out of the program by September 19.

Our RETURN-TO-PLAY page details safety protocols we'll have in place this fall—please take a moment to review and prepare for the start of the season. I want to thank all of our families for your patience as we navigate these dynamic times—the health and safety of our players and families is our highest priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at president@scqueenanne.org

Sincerely,
Yarrow Banko (Club President)

UPDATE | FALL SOCCER 2020

UPDATE | FALL SOCCER 2020

Hello Parents, Coaches, and Volunteers,

SC Queen Anne is optimistically planning on another exciting fall 2020 soccer season. I know we are all wondering the same thing: when will we be returning to a normal way of life and what will that normal life be like?

There are so many uncertainties facing us, and the timing is such, that we felt opening registration in May was important for planning purposes and could be done so at low risk to our families. Over the next few months, we will learn more and hopefully, things are safe enough for our families and members to return to the fields.

UPDATES TO REGISTRATION AND PAYMENTS

We have structured our registration process to minimize the financial component as much as we can. We would like you to complete registration like normal and we will not process the registration or any payments until July 3rd to prevent tying up our members' finances. Registering now allows us to see how things are coming together unofficially, as July is the month that we begin verifying that teams are viable, and the bulk of our planning is put into motion. If teams begin to fill up, we will create a waitlist for new players.

The second reason we are processing the payments in July is to allow us to utilize an electronic refund process in the event our season is suspended—we have a 90-day window to issue refunds electronically.

ASSISTANCE FOR FAMILIES

Families will have the option to pay over time. The initial payment will be $20.00 per child and the remaining amount will be divided into 2 payments. This was done for multiple reasons, however, the main purpose was to minimize the amount of money we are tying up. Again, we are trying to minimize the financial impact as much as we can.

Finally, our scholarship program is available to anyone and everyone—if you would like to request a scholarship, please email us before you register so that we can give you a scholarship code to use. Email us at scholarships@scqueenanne.org.

COMMITMENT TO SAFETY

Ultimately, we all know this decision is up to each family. SC Queen Anne is committed to the safety of our players, coaches, and volunteers, and will not return to play unless it is safe to do so. As a dad, I understand the difficulty behind these decisions and am confident that we're taking the right steps at the right time to return to play safely.

Thank you and be safe.
