COVID UPDATE - FALL SEASON DELAYED

FALL SEASON DELAYED

COVID UPDATE 09/15/20

WSSC is focused on the safety of our participants. Washington Youth Soccer has petitioned the Governor for an accommodation to play in Phase 2 of the Governor’s Safe Start Phased Approach. See https://coronavirus.wa.gov/what-you-need-know/safe-start/whats-open-each-phase and https://washingtonyouthsoccer.org/washington-youth-soccer-return-to-play-guidelines. We understand that the Governor’s consideration of the WYS petition is delayed due to the wildfires. Even if approved, it is unclear whether WSSC can meet the necessary protocols or that the Parks Department will issue field permits for play under lessened restrictions.  

Our season remains delayed. If the Governor grants the WYS petition, Seattle Parks issues permits, or we reach Phase 3, WSSC will presently be able to begin our Fall Season on October 3rd at the earliest. We still are hopeful to preserve the entire season by re-scheduling some games mid-week or after Thanksgiving.

Please check this site regularly for updates. We will continue to monitor the guidelines set forth by the Governor, King County, and the Seattle Parks Department. Thank you for your patience.
