Recreation Soccer

Our Recreational soccer program is designed for youth ages 11 to 18. We offer both a fall and spring season which allows for playing other sports or activities. Recreational program focuses on the following:

  1. Learn the basic skills
  2. Learn the game
  3. Continue to learn advance skills
  4. Allows the players to do more than play soccer
  • Play other sports, play, sing, music, and other activities
  • Dance, and be in school plays

What does "recreational" mean?
Recreation provides varying levels of competition. This program continues where our Modified program leaves off. There are no tryout for this program. The commitment for this program allows players to play other sports or activities. Teams travel locally in the South King and Pierce county for games.

Registration Dates and Cost

Recreation follows a similar model for organizing teams as you may have seen in the KCYS Modified program

  • A registrar will place the player on a team
  • The registrar does their best to place the player with teams in a similar area or school
  • Players can request to be with a team
  • A team of players can organize together
