ABOUT_
Mission
NYSA provides a soccer association for youth residing in the Northshore School District and Maltby area.  The association aids in training and providing soccer skills and knowledge for approximately 5,000 players.

History
NYSA roots date back to October of 1974 when a dedicated group of volunteers started Northshore Junior Soccer Association.  In January of 1996 the name was officially changed to Northshore Youth Soccer Association.  NYSA is a non-profit Washington State organization that provides structure for youth soccer program in our area.  Our service area is generally defined as consisting of the geographical area covered by the Northshore School District and the Maltby area.  As a member of Washington Youth Soccer (WYS), NYSA is one of 50 youth soccer associations within the WYS system. NYSA, along with Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association (LWYSA), Eastside Youth Soccer Association (EYSA), and Snoqualmie Valley Youth Soccer Association (SnVYSA) is a member of D2.

NYSA is divided into 7 clubs with four clubs that are formed around the public elementary school boundaries and high school feeder patterns. These clubs are: Bothell, Inglemoor, North Creek, and Woodinville.  Teams in these clubs play 3-a-side at U6 and progress to 9-a-side at U12. The United Club is made of up recreational teams from U13 thru U19.

Northshore Select Club (NSC) provides soccer programs to players U10 to U19 who are seeking a more competitive environment than Recreational soccer with less of a time commitment and lower cost than Premier soccer. NSC operates with licensed volunteer coaches and teams participate in the NPSL (North Puget Sound League).

Greater Seattle Surf is the sole premier soccer club chartered by Washington Youth Soccer to represent the South Snohomish County and Northshore Youth Soccer associations at the highest level of club play in Washington, the RCL (Regional Club League). This is the most advanced program within NYSA.  Greater Seattle Surf provides high-level professional coaching for players U9 to U19.

New Law Brings New Responsibility to Youth Coaches

Following the recent USA Gymnastics scandal with Dr. Larry Nassar, Congress enacted a new federal law intended to require coaches to report any suspicion of child abuse, including sexual abuse.  The new law, known as the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017, became effective February 14, 2018. 

According to the U.S. Center for Safe Sport, the Act “extends the duty to report suspected child abuse, including sexual abuse, within 24 hours to certain adults who are authorized to interact with minor or amateur athletes at a facility under the jurisdiction of a national governing body".  This law applies to all NYSA head coaches, assistant coaches, team managers, medical personel, board members, and staff.  Any individual who is required, but fails, to report suspected child abuse will now be subject to criminal penalties.

Additionally, the bill amends the federal criminal code to revise civil remedy provisions. Among other things, it changes the civil statute of limitation to 10 years from the date the victim discovers the violation or injury (currently 10 years from the date the cause of action arose). The bill also extends the statute of limitations for a minor victim of a federal sex offense to file a civil action to 10 years (currently 3 years) from the date such individual reaches age 18.
