Recreational 2006-2014 Soccer League

SYSA hosts the largest recreational soccer league in Spokane County.  The complete session consists of 7 fall games and 5 spring games.  SYSA offers small-sided games for youth that are adjusted for each age group.  This in combination with our effort to ensure each player receives at least 50% playing time means that every kid gets more touches on the ball.

SYSA practices and most games (as the league size allows) will be played in your neighborhood.

SYSA is a partner club with the Seattle Sounders and the local youth competitive club Spokane Shadow SC.

Our mission is for all youth to play, develops skills, learn good sportsmanship, and understand the value of being a team player.
