City League soccer is recreational soccer - player selection for teams may not be based on ability or by any tryout process. The Seattle Youth Soccer Association (SYSA), which consists of 12 neighborhood clubs throughout Seattle and Shoreline, organizes this league. Within each age group there are three divisions: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The coaches and the SYSA registrars determine the division level for each team. Teams stay together year to year and may move up or down a division each season. Players will receive a jersey, shorts and socks, which they use for two years before getting a new kit. Players only need to provide shin guards to play. Soccer cleats are recommended, and a ball and water bottle are helpful if players have them.
