The Northshore Youth Soccer Association is a
non-profit Washington State organization that provides structure to
the youth soccer program in our area.
"Our area" is generally defined as consisting
of the geographical area covered by the Northshore School District (#417) and the Maltby area. This area is generally at the north end of Lake Washington, near Seattle, in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
The NYSA membership in 1999 consists of over 6,200 players from U06 to U19
on over 500 soccer teams, organized into 11 different Clubs. We will participate in approximately 3,300 matches during the calendar year at all levels of play.
We operate under Bylaws adopted by the NYSA Board of Directors as a Washington State Association (#10) within Washington State
District II, which also includes our neighbors to the south(Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association and Eastside Youth Soccer
Association) and the East (Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association).
These four Associations make up District II within the Washington State Youth Soccer Association (WSYSA), one of the member Associations of Region IV of the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA), which is one of the National Associations of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).
The NYSA is NOT a member organization associated with the American Youth Soccer Association (AYSO), but we have great respect for their efforts. The NYSA does place some of its teams into leagues managed by our neighboring district, WSYSA District III.
