NOW LETS ANSWER SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS
Our season starts with practices mid August, our first games are the weekend following Labor Day and run until the end of October or first week of November depending on playoff standing and age group. Our games are held on Saturdays. Times vary weekly.
Unfortunately I cannot provide specific practice times or locations. Our coaches are all volunteers who in August will meet and sign up for times and practice fields. Most of the micro teams, ages 8 and under will practice once a week for an hour and usually at Heritage park, with all games held at Heritage on Saturday mornings they are almost always done before noon. For our Recreational teams they usually will practice 2x a week, all games are on Saturdays and they will play some locally in Stanwood but also travel as far north as Sedro Woolley and some to San Juan Island. Game schedules will not be available until the very end of August to first week of September as we have to wait for all the leagues involved to finalize their registrations.
Team Assignment and Coaching:
We are working hard at this very moment to assign players and coaches to teams. For those returning welcome back and for those new here WELCOME, we are happy to have you. At this time we currently have nearly 650 players to get placed on teams which means nearly 80 teams to create. We do our very best to honor coach and buddy requests. Also please be aware that if you are called later this month about coaching it is because your child's team is in danger of not being viable without someone stepping up to coach. We do our very best to have every child who wants to play on a team but each team has a player cap so if one team does not have anyone offer to coach and all other teams are full we cannot just shift kids to already full team. Just want everyone to be aware.
Many have asked where and what to get. All players must have shin guards, soccer shoes, and should all have a water bottle and preferably a ball ( some are provided to each coach and the ball size does change with age, your coaches will have this information ). There are several options where to purchase these items, Fred Meyer, target, Play it again sports, and Dick's sporting goods are all good places to find these items. Also if you start looking early often times shoes turn up at consignment.
Sorry we cannot provide more specifics but our division consists of over 700 players, 80 teams and 9 different field locations between Stanwood and Camano Island.
We look forward to a great season, hope your family is able to join us.

Skagit Valley Youth Soccer Association the umbrella we participate under is in need of qualified Referee's for soccer. To obtain a current ref card and training check out the website below for local training opportunities.
For local upcoming training and certification classes and requirements please check out:
I just wanted to let everyone know that Skagit Valley Soccer Referees Assn. will be holding a New Referee Clinic to train/certify new referees on 30 May 2015. If you ever gave any thoughts to becoming a soccer referee, then this is where you get the training to start out.
If you have attended your kid's game and watched the coaches act as Referees, it is because we need more active Referees
Perhaps you have attended games and thought "boy, that ref made some terrible calls...I could have done better than that". Well, we would like to offer you the opportunity to do exactly that.
Perhaps you have had to attend multiple games, with spare time in between, and wondered "Gee, how am I going to kill 2 hours before the next game?". Well, if you were a referee, you may not have to wonder any more.
Is your youth soccer player looking for a great way to earn some money, while learning the game that they love from a whole different perspective? Becoming a soccer referee offers a way to do this, and still maintain a flexible schedule for school and playing for a club.
We really do need more active referees. We prefer that kids be at least 12 years old when taking the clinic (mostly due to the vocabulary / reading level required to read "Laws of the Game" and understand the questions asked on the exams). Of course, we always welcome more adult-age referees too. I have posted all of the information and links necessary to get started on the SKVYSA website: www.skvysa.org . Be advised that part of process involves taking some online clinics. These MUST be completed prior to the classroom portion. These online clinics must also be completed before your space at the classroom clinic is reserved (and space is limited). So, if you are interested, don't delay.
Ages 12 and up with an understanding of soccer are eligable to take courses and become paid referee's and we are always in need. All SkVYSA referee's are paid for ref'ing games and can sign up for local and away games to fit their own schedules.
If you are already a referee and interested in getting involved please contact http://skagitrefs.org/ to register today.
7-9PM IN THE MEETING ROOM AT THE STANWOOD CAMANO LIBRARY IN DOWNTOWN STANWOOD.
OPEN TO ALL
SCYSC is a complete volunteer organization that relies on the involvement of all of the parents in order to succeed. To volunteer do you need to know soccer? Absolutely not! We have many parents involved with the club that have had their soccer knowledge grow right along with their children. There are also many positions available off the field that need volunteers in order for the club to continue to grow and be successful! To help all you need to do is ask, or step forward when asked by a coach or team manager to help!
