U13-U19 RECREATIONAL FULL-SIDED FALL SOCCER PROGRAM
Recreation soccer is for older players who are ready for full-sided soccer. They play 11v11 and adhere all of the Laws of the Game. As players physically mature, the size of the ball and the length of the match will increase until they are playing with a full-size #5 ball and playing 45-minute halves.
Registration has closed, but you can request to be on the waiting list.
Rosters are released to coaches in late July. No changes will be made to rosters other than the addition of late registrants if space is available. U13-U19 teams play a full 11-a-side game and have a maximum roster size of 18 players.

As part of their registration, Rec players will receive an official Issaquah FC uniform kit including jersey, shorts and socks. Parents are responsible for the following additional equipment:
