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.

Spring Soccer Registration Now Open

Time to dig out the shin guards and check if cleats have been out grown, as Spring Soccer is just around the corner!

Seattle Youth Soccer Association (SYSA) is now accepting team registration for their Spring season. Their Spring Soccer program, started by our club's own Neil Callahan in 2002, is a chance to have fun during the off season. No practices, just games on Sundays. It's a fun way to get some of that weekend energy out, and get them ready for QASC Fall soccer!

Spring Soccer is not organized by QASC, so parents and coaches are free to form their own teams. Registration is now open, with an early bird discount if you register your team by 1/27.

For more information, please visit the SYSA Spring soccer page.

New in 2019 – TeamSnap for QASC

We're a week into the fall season. Practices have started and first games for many are in the books! Looking forward to a fun season for all!

As you saw from an earlier email announcement, QASC is now offering TeamSnap Premium to all members. Families with kids in U6 - U14 should have received a TeamSnap invite, sent to the email used for registration. Please make sure to sign up, download the app, and stay connected with the coach and team.

TEAM TOOLS ON THE GO

TeamSnap is a fantastic tool, available on all smart phones, for sharing schedules, availability and general communication between coach and family. It can even be used to coordinate post-game snack responsibilities for parents with the Assignments feature. With Premium, we also have the option of entering scores, stats, and any other info you want to track. Feel free to use it as you see fit. For questions on how to best use the tool, please reach out, we're happy to help.

THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE

Unfortunately, at this point, there is no direct connection between league registration / scheduling and TeamSnap, so it has been a bit of a bumpy roll-out. Some players may have gotten on the wrong team during initial upload, and schedules were slow to be added, but we hope all is in sync now. If not, please let us and your coach know. We appreciate your patience and feedback as we look for ways to improve your experience with our club.

Welcome to the all new QASoccer.org!

Welcome to the all new QASoccer.org!

Fall is in the air! The days are getting shorter, the weather a bit crisper, the Sounders are in the playoff hunt - it's definitely time for Queen Anne Soccer!

We thought we'd kick the new season off with a brand new, redesigned from the ground up website! Our goal with qasoccer.org is to provide a fresh, informative site for you to get all the information you need on our club and your team. We hope you enjoy the change, and we look forward to the feedback.

As you know we live in a community filled with talented families. Our club was fortunate to find parent volunteer JP Flores, whose dual skills in web dev and graphic design made this all possible. Thank you JP!

Our club runs on the efforts of volunteers like JP. We appreciate your support of our kids, our community, and your QA Soccer club.

Here's to a great 2019!
