Coaches and Volunteers
The registration process begins with our coaches and volunteers.If you are willing to coach or volunteer to serve in another capacity, please

Whether you are a parent considering coaching for the first time, or an experienced player with years of coaching experience, we believe that providing practical information, user-friendly tools, and ongoing support to strengthen our coaches is the surest way to continue to improve the quality of our soccer programs and ensure enjoyment for all.

Mandatory Coaches Meetings
It is our expectation that ALL West Seattle Soccer Club Coaches will attend the mandatory meeting associated with their age group. Team equipment and uniforms are distributed at these meetings. Please plan to attend!

Referees
Referees play a critical role in the success of our WSSC programs. It was wonderful to have so many new referees serving this spring! As our Club continues to grow so does our need for licensed referees. If you are willing to serve as a referee, please plan to attend a licensing clinic this summer. Our referee association(TRIAS) will be hosting several clinics this summer. Please check their website for details. A complete list of certification clinics for referees can be found on the Washington Referee Committee website.

Summer Soccer Camps
We are sponsoring two soccer camps July 6-10, and Aug. 17-21 facilitated by our partners at UK International Soccer. Special 3-hour clinics for Keepers, Strikers, and a FREE Coaches Clinic will be offered on the Saturday's following each camp week. A complete list of soccer camps and player development opportunities in our community is available on our Camps and Player Development page
