What league do we play in?
Recreational Teams U6 to U12
NYSA recreational teams from U6 to U12 play other teams from within NYSA. Games are typically played on Saturdays with the exception of 2 Sunday games for U10 and U11 teams and 2 weeknight games for U12 teams. The season ends the last weekend in October.
Recreational Teams U13 to U19
NYSA recreational teams from U13 to U19 play in the District 2 League. (The District 2 associations form a rec league in order to ensure enough U13 to U19 teams to offer a viable league. District 2 is comprised of NYSA, Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association, Eastide Youth Soccer Association and Lower Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association.) Games are on Sundays except boys U13 and girls U13-U15. The season ends in mid-November.
Select Teams U11 to U19
NSC select teams from U11 to U19 play other District 1 and District 2 teams in the North Puget Sound League (the exception are the older boys teams who play in District 3 leagues). Games are typically played on Saturdays for U11 to U14 and Sundays for U15 to U19. The season ends in mid-December for all teams except girls U16 to U18 teams. Girls U16 to U18 teams play during the NPSL's winter season from January through March to avoid the high school girls' fall season.
Premier Teams U10 to U19
FC Alliance premier teams from U10 to U19 play other Washington Youth Soccer teams in the RCL league. Games are typically played on Saturdays for U10 to U14 and Sundays for U15 to U19. The season ends in November for boys U15 to U19 with state cup play ending in Febuary (this is done to avoid the boys high school spring soccer season). Girls U15 to U18 teams play during the RCL's winter season from January through March with state cup play in March & April to avoid the high school girls' fall season. The U10 to U14 teams also play a "Spring" season in January to March with state cup play in March & April.
FC Alliance premier teams could have away games anywhere within Washington, depending on which teams are in their RCL division. There are teams from Spokane, Vancouver, Whidbey Island, and Olympic Peninsula in the RCL.
