GU12 Shooting Stars (October 28, 2012)


The Woodland Soccer Club (WSC) is proud to provide recreational soccer opportunities to more than 1,200 children who live within our club boundaries in Seattle (Green Lake, Wallingford, Fremont and Phinney Ridge).

Recreational soccer is soccer that is open to any member of the public who qualifies to participate (under the guidelines of the WSC). There are no tryouts - if you can register, you can play. Players are assigned to teams by our club registrars. Coaches are not allowed to select their players, and parents are not allowed to influence the placement of their children onto teams.

The club's goal is to distribute players among teams in such a way that there are no dominant teams, and no deficient teams. Parity among teams and enjoyable, competitive games are our overriding priority.

Woodland Soccer Club is the officially sanctioned organization charged with providing recreational youth soccer to the children who live within our boundaries. WSC is a member of the Seattle Youth Soccer Association, which is in turn a part of the Washington State Youth Soccer Association.

WSC is an all-volunteer organization. It takes a tremendous amount of work throughout the year to prepare and stage quality soccer games for over 1,000 children every fall. Your family will enjoy many years of fun and excitement with WSC. Please volunteer some time to help the club function and flourish. Visit our VOLUNTEER section to learn how you can contribute.

"There is no greater joy than spending sunny Saturdays at Wallingford Park with the community and with the children as they chase a ball across a field."
