SNOHOMISH RECREATIONAL SOCCER
Recreational soccer. Our community-based program for those that want to play with their friends and have fun.
Micro soccer involves short games on small fields with no goalkeeper or referees and 4 players to a side. This allows these young players plenty an opportunity to run and get a maximum number of touches on the ball, without worrying a lot about playing positions. Micro teams play only other SYSC micro teams. Teams at this age are coed.
U5 practices on Friday night only immediately followed by a game starting the first Friday before Labor Day weekend. A total of 6 practices /games. U6 practice Wednesday and Friday, Friday training is followed by games. U7-8 practices will be twice a week with games on Saturday. Picture Days are September 14-17.
U9 to U10 teams play Modified or "Mod" soccer, which involves half- or three-quarter-size fields and goals, and introduces goalkeepers. U9 teams play 7-a-side with a size 4 ball. U10 teams play 7-a-side with a size 4 ball.

Our volunteer coaches are what makes Snohomish Recreational Soccer a success! If you would like to coach a Rec team(s) this season, please sign up HERE. If you have any questions about coaching rec contact our rec director, Zach Johndrow, HERE. All Rec coaches receive their $50 Volunteer credit and cones and pennies are provided for the team.
This season recreational families have the option of paying the fees in full at registration or splitting the payment up into two payments. Half the payment due at registration and half the payment due two months later. The $50 Volunteer fee is refundable upon completion of those 2 hours and the $50 Raffle tickets can be sold to recover that fee.
Each season many families choose to volunteer for the club and receive a refund of their $50 Volunteer Fee. There are many opportunities for families to complete their 2 volunteer hours through out the season.
Opportunities Include: Raffle Ticket Sign Out, US Club Regionals, Kla Ha Ya Adult Tournament, Bigfoot Tournament. Rec Coaches also receive credit for their volunteer hours.
We will do our best to ensure that returning players who register during this open period will return to their team from the previous year. Specific requests for teams, coaches, or teammates may be given consideration, but will not be guaranteed.
To request a specific team, be sure include the coach's name in the field that asks for PREVIOUS COACH. That field is used to place players.
Financial aid is available to families that qualify. Applications can be downloaded HERE. Completed applications and required documentation can be submitted to the scholarship committee HERE.
New this season, raffle ticket sales were designed to help offset the rising costs of maintaining Stocker Fields. Providing a top quality complex where all our teams can train and play within our community is our top priority. Raffle sales enable us to provide this when we face such challenges as flooding and vandalism. Selling a booklet of tickets is optional, if you prefer not to sell the tickets assigned to your player, you can simply return the booklet and your fees will remain the same. Tickets will be distributed on Picture Day - September 14-17
The 2020-21 season is a uniform year. ALL players will be required to purchase a new uniform. Players will receive an email from Soccer.com with a link to purchase their uniform. Emails will be sent within two weeks of registration. Uniforms will be sent directly to players homes.
From team chat, last-minute alerts and scheduling — to assignments, payment collection and real-time game sharing Team Snap makes it communication easy. This tool will be provided to all teams, free of charged by the club so that coaches can keep in touch with their players and the club can post important dates and alerts.
