Welcome
to the
Mount Vernon Youth Soccer Association
Mount Vernon, Washington

We try to keep this website updated and relevant throughout the entire year. This is your main source for information about our club.  Check back here often for information about soccer-related events for MVYSA as well as throughout the Skagit Valley. We will try to post information about coach clinics and referee training as well. 

If you have soccer information to pass on, it can be sent to: webmaster@mvysa.org

 

 

http://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/cfd/Button_3.gif MVYSA is a participating charity in the Washington State Combined Fund Drive.  If you are an employee of a participating government agency and you are a donor (or wish to become one), we would appreciate you considering specifying MVYSA as a recipient of your donations.  Our charity registration number is:  1481203  Just click on the CFD logo to get started.

Board Members Needed!!

We are in desperate need of volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors and Coordinators.   Many of the Board positions require little or no knowledge of the game of soccer. We rely on volunteers to help keep costs as low as possible. If you can spare some time, please consider volunteering.

We meet on the third Monday of each month (except December), at 7pm, at Round Table Pizza in Mt. Vernon.  Please attend.

 New Referee Clinic

If you are interested in becoming a soccer referee, Skagit Valley Soccer Referees Assn. (SVSRA) is hosting a New Referee Clinic to train and license new Referees.  The clinic will be held on 30 May 2015, at the Burlington Senior Center.

About our season:


Our season begins with player registrations.  Regular registration typically begins in mid-April, and continues through June each year.  We do accept late registrations through August, if roster space permits (and subject to a late fee).  Please review our operating polices (see the "By-Laws & Policies" page) for details about this.


Team rosters are distributed to the coaches during early August.  You should be contacted by your assigned coach around the 15th of August.  The practice schedule and start date are determined by each individual coach.  Most coaches will have 2 practices per week.  Most practices will last 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours (this varies by age).

(If you are concerned about practice schedule conflicts, a great way to avoid this is to volunteer to be a coach!!  See the "contacts" page and contact the Coaching Coordinator).


The games are usually held on Saturdays.  We usually kick off the season with a MVYSA Jamboree on the Saturday before Labor Day.  The regular season will begin on the first Saturday after Labor Day.  For U-10 and younger, the season will usually end the last Saturday in October.  For U-11 and older, the season will usually end the following week with the Skagit Valley Youth Soccer Association championship tournament (usually the first weekend of November).


Equipment Exchange:  MVYSA will be holding an "equipment exchange" at the in-person registrations.  If you have used (but still serviceable) soccer shoes or shin guards that you no longer need, please donate them.  If you need equipment, come see if we have what you need.  There is no cost to receive gear and a donation is not a requirement.
