Summary WYS Membership Annual Player Fee Meeting (APFM)

Posted: Monday February 5th, 2024 Expires: 12/31/2024


WYS Membership Annual Player Fee Meeting (APFM) – met 2/3/2024 in-person and online in discussions, shared feedback, and offering insights to guide player fee considerations and ultimately Saturday’s vote.

To that end, on Saturday Association Leaders discussed, suggested, and voted (voting snapshot below) to set WYS per player fees for 2024-2025 to the following:

  • Recreational 10u and below - $8.50
  • Recreational 11u and above - $18.50
  • Competitive - $22.00

Voting snapshot:

  • 19 of 24 active Associations voted
  • 77 of 93 total votes cast
  • 75 of 77 votes to approve

For those unable to join us on Saturday, you can view a recording of the APFM and review the meeting presentation by following the link below. For those short on time, also wanted to share a brief overview of WYS investment plan in the short- and long-term:

Invest to improve risk management services, both on the front-end (e.g., streamline volunteer coach / admin RMA onboarding process) and back-end (improve support services to address complaints). Not only would this allow Clubs to attract and retain better coaches / volunteers but would also mitigate risk of increased costs down the road and facilitates more opportunities to invest in Membership in the long-term (see below).

Build additional equity to mitigate business risk of unanticipated costs (e.g., lawsuits, insurance, etc.), which WYS would reinvest back in Membership through projects like field development loans – it’s amazing how many more touches on the ball kids can get if lighted, turf fields are available! – and elsewhere that might be valuable for Members. By investing in risk management in the short-term, realizing these investment goals are more likely.

Smoke/Air Quality Advisory - EPA AirNOW Current Weather and Air Quality resources

High Heat and wildfire smoke is again making an unwelcome visit to our practice and play fields. Each field location has a detailed, real-time, pinpoint weather forecast plus the current air quality index.

Valuable information for staying on top of heat and air quality. Look up your home field in order to determine local conditions and adjust your practice or play accordingly. Also, reference the USA Soccer's https://www.recognizetorecover.org/environmental regarding Heat & Hydration and AQI (Air Quality Index) for smoke-filled skies.

NSYSA has the real-time EPA AirNOW widget linked to everyone of our field locations.
Best practices call for: "If the average AQI for [insert field]reaches 151 (or higher) then practices and games will be canceled for the safety and welfare of our players and coaches. No teams should practice outdoors or participate in games when this threshold level is reached.
Practices - Call to cancel will be made by 3pm on a weekday.
Games - Call to cancel will be made as soon as AQI reaches 151 of higher."

· Hydration is necessary! Often!
· Limit strong physical exercise during periods of high heat or poor air quality.
· More simpler/softer training

Follow the icon to look up real-time weather and AQI for your fields. more

Preventing ACL injuries with the FIFA 11+ program

Posted: Wednesday June 21st, 2023 Expires: 12/31/2024


FIFA 11+ is an ACL injury prevention program designed to be performed by players prior to training and competitive games. Players and teams can reduce their rate of ACL injury using a series of simple warm-up exercises.

Many studies have confirmed the effectiveness of the FIFA 11+ program, showing significantly reduced injury rates of around 45% and decreased time lost to injury by 30% in competitive soccer players. This benefit has not only been observed in adults, but also in children, in whom ACL rupture has serious consequences.

Amateur Sports Officials Assault Protection Bill

Posted: Monday February 6th, 2023 Expires: 12/31/2024


The Washington State House of Representatives has added to their docket for the upcoming “2023 Regular Session” a bill requesting to add amateur sports officials to the assault protection that many other public-serving professions already receive. Should this bill pass, Washington State will be only the 23rd state in the U.S. with any type of codified protection for amateur sports officials.

By adding amateur sports officials to the existing protected groups within RCW 9A.36.031, it would make assaults against amateur sports officials a class C felony. This protection is already afforded to bus drivers, police officers, health care workers, firefighters, judges, court workers.

The passage of this bill would continue to send a message to all that Washington State values the protection of amateur sports officials. The crisis we face with unsporting behavior across our state, and country, continues to drive officials away from our avocation, and without officials there would be no games.

Please spread the word about this bill. Ask everyone to contact their State Representatives and request that they sign onto this bill. Let’s get HB 1096-2023-24 passed. The more our legislators know how much this means to officials, the more likely we will be to ensure it gets made into law.

Wondering Where Are the Game Schedules?

Posted: Saturday September 3rd, 2022 Expires: 12/31/2024


9/5/2022 Update - Thanks to all our Club Schedulers the ENTIRE ten weeks of the Fall season are now online!

Be sure to revisit often as schedule updates are being made regularly.

Schedulers and Club reps began the journey to our Fall 2022 Season with a successful August, 20 Scheduling meeting.

Kicking off the weekend of Saturday September 10, NSYSA Club's have fielded nearly 300 teams resulting in 1,205 games, spread across 31 Boys and Girls U05-U16+ brackets.
Some gender and age grouping compete within a single bracket of teams. While other Levels were carefully divided into two or three brackets based on factors of team's past performance, and scheduling considerations, including geography and optimal game times.

On August 25 the Club approved brackets were returned to Schedulers for assignments of home fields and kick-off times.
Each Club's home schedule was due back ASAP, but not later than September 1. At which time they were uploaded to NSYSAsoccer.org/schedules

Posted schedules are NOT permanent! Game modifications and updates occur frequently.
For tips on always being-on-top of your teams CURRENT and CORRECT schedule, visit the link below >

Thanks again to the ongoing work of each and everyone of our Club Registrars, Schedulers and Coaches for doing their part in making our Fall Soccer Season a success! more

Summary changes for 2022-2023 by IFAB

Posted: Tuesday May 24th, 2022 Expires: 12/31/2024


FIFA Laws of the Game are the core of rules for Soccer. All 17 Laws can be visited anytime at https://www.theifab.com/

NSYSA utilizes age-level modifications to some of these laws for Small-Sided and Full-Sided Rec. and Comp. play. (e.g. number of players, field size, and size of game balls dependent on age of play).

Per IFAB "Any approved changes to the Laws of the Game will become mandatory from 1 July 2022; competitions starting before that date will have the option of implementing them earlier." (Translation: ONLY if you have a summer tourney starting on Thursday, June 30, do you need to worry about '22-'23 modifications to the Laws of the Game possibly changing in the middle of your tournament on July 1!)

Once recommendations are received from WYS, NSYSA will approve rules of play for fall Small-Sided and Full-Sided Recreational play. These should come out in advance of teams getting ready for the September 10 kick-off of the Fall 2022 season!

Help To NOT Become the Next Ugly News Story

Posted: Friday November 19th, 2021 Expires: 12/31/2024


From Roseville, CA to Dublin, Ireland. Too often the news reports terrible stories associated with referee abuse in youth sports. Especially soccer, (aka 'football' throughout the rest of the world).

NSYSA calls on everyone to renew their accepted pledges to promote and practice "Play Fair" whether winning or losing.

Whenever a Parent or a Public user logs into NSYSAsoccer.org site they have agreed to do their parts to support and uplift the "Beautiful Game" of soccer. These agreements state - in part:

"You are an integral part of your players' development and our overall soccer community. No matter what your role, on or off the field, you are a role model for players and players' teammates and you are a steward of their soccer development.
"Fair Play" is a fundamental part of the game of football. It represents the positive benefits of playing by the rules, using common sense, and respecting fellow players, referees, opponents, and`fans.
"By agreeing to these terms you are also accepting your role in achieving Fair Play for ALL in our soccer community: Coach, player, referee, volunteer, fan, team manager, carpool director, administrator...

Review the Parent and Public NSYSA agreements, and - if you must - the sad news stories.
Then do your part to encourage everyone to help change the NEWS regarding youth sports and referees. Help "Play Fair and enjoy the 'beautiful game'"

Can We Improve the Culture of Sports?

Posted: Saturday July 31st, 2021 Expires: 12/31/2024


As we lace up cleats and blow-up balls for another season of soccer, let's everyone — coaches, referees, players, administrators and parents — undertake the ultimate (personal) responsibility for improving the culture of youth sports.

The key lies in the rules. Our kids deserve a healthy culture of mutual respect and camaraderie led by adults able to model the ideals of competition and sportsmanship.

Paradigm-shifting change is never easy. For example, when heading was eliminated and the fall-back line was added for U11 and below play, the initial reaction was much wailing and outrage. Yet, because the goal was clear and necessary, the change happened, and it has reduced incidents of serious injury as well as improved the development nature of the small-sided game.

Productive change is always possible, especially to address a crisis — like the referee shortage - it starts with EVERYONE doing their part.

Thank you for your continuing cooperation with NSYSA on this journey.

Posted: Friday May 7th, 2021 Expires: 12/31/2024


In some cases, the number of available officials has declined due to health-related reasons – people opting out this year because of the pandemic. As vaccinations increase and the optics improve, many of these individuals hopefully will return.

For other officials, however, the pandemic was a secondary concern compared to the verbal abuse they receive from fans – mostly parents.
