What is MOD?

Who is FWMSC?

The Federal Way MOD Soccer Club (FWMSC) was approved by the two existing clubs (East and West) and the Federal Way Soccer Association in 2003. MOD means that the field and number of players are modified from the full sized game played by older kids. This Club is for all Recreational players, ages 4 to 11 years old (U5, under 5 to U12, under 12) and are placed on teams based on age by their birth year. (See Age Group Chart.)

FWMSC wants nothing less than the best environment for all youth soccer players to not only love the game of soccer but also to grow in their soccer knowledge & skills.

What are the Club Expectations?

We ask that you help us achieve our goal of creating the best environment possible for our young FWMSC players, our coaches, and our parents. The following Code of Ethics have been developed to clarify and distinguish approved and accepted professional, ethical and moral behavior from that which is detrimental to the development of soccer within the Washington Youth Soccer (WYS).

Player Expectations

FWMSC players will be asked to sign and abide by our Player Code of Ethics at all times. Players are expected to attend all practice sessions and games and to be on-time and prepared. Players are expected to follow the rules and policies set forth by the Club, state, and national soccer associations and will practice good sportsmanship.
Player Code of Ethics

Parent Expectations

FWMSC parents will be asked to sign and abide by our Parent Pledge at all times. Parents will show respect to all individuals involved with the game (players and parents of both teams, coaches, referees, and field staff.)

What Does the Registration Fee Cover?

Each player's fee will cover the following: 1 Uniform, 1 Technical Jersey, club/association/district/state scheduling fees, inter-league play, field rentals for games and practices, insurance, and administrative costs.

What is included with the uniform?

For fall seasons, each player will receive a jersey, shorts, and socks as their uniform kit. For spring seasons, each player will receive a jersey only as their uniform kit  Parents will need to provide shin guards and soccer cleats for both seasons. 

What is the FWMSC Refund Policy?

Within 10 days of the registration cut off, a full refund minus $15 for processing. More than 10 days after the registration cut off, but before the first game, a 50% refund is provided. The uniform must be returned unworn and in new condition. If the uniform is not returned or has been used or worn, no refund will be granted. After the first game, no refund will be granted.

Are There Scholarship Opportunities?

All scholarship requests are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee.  Scholarships can be approved as partial or full scholarships.  If receiving a partial scholarship, recipients may be required to pay a $20 uniform fee. In addition, all scholarship recipient families are required to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours helping with pre-game field setup and post-game take down. If interested in a scholarship, please contact the Club Treasurer, Sarah Andregg, at [email protected].
