Federal Way Soccer Association History

United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) has its roots in Federal Way. The same people that formed USYSA began a program in Washington State. In 1966 the Federal Way Soccer Association and three other associations formed what has become Washington Youth Soccer. These humble beginnings provide a great foundation to continue the development of youth soccer and many of our youth players are now adults coaching our children into the future where the legacy continues.

There are two Clubs in Federal Way Soccer, the Federal Way Football Club (FWFC) and Federal Way Mod Soccer Club (FWMSC).
