Age Groups Age Chart

Issaquah FC offers Select soccer from U10 to U19.

Season and Time Commitment

In general, teams are together from June/July through November/December…there is anywhere from a 6 to 9 month commitment depending on the team. The Select season is longer than Rec and shorter than Premier. Select teams typically participate in 2-3 tournaments during the summer. The regular fall league season typically includes 10-12 games (depending on age) and runs from the weekend after Labor Day to mid-December. All teams are encouraged to participate in the State Cup tournaments (Dec-Feb for most teams) following the regular fall season. Practices are held twice a week and last 1-½ hours each.

While the Select program is designed to support a well-rounded balance of school, family life, and other interests, players must make a commitment to their teammates and coaches. The Club expects that all players attempt to make every practice and game unless otherwise discussed with the head coach. Each player and their parents should plan on the player being available for multiple summer tournaments and practices. The parent commitment for Select is higher than Rec as well, with each team requiring a team manager, treasurer, and referee-in-pool.
