Southlake Mod and Recreational  Soccer

The Southlake Recreational program serves youth in the Greater Renton and Tukwila area and is meant for youth that want to learn the game of soccer, but with more emphasis placed on playing with friends and having fun. Southlake has two programs, Mod Soccer for U5-U9 and Recreational Soccer for U10-U19.  Recreational teams have less time and cost commitment than select teams, and travel time to games is less than for select teams. Southlake tries to keep costs low so that all youth can play, regardless of the financial situation of their family. As a result, rec teams are coached and managed by volunteers. Coaches are encouraged to complete coach certification courses to provide them the skills to better train their players, but it is not required.  More complete information on all Southlake programs can be found by visiting the Southlake Soccer Website.

Mod Soccer(U5-U9):

Southlake Mod (Modified) Soccer is the branch of Greater Renton Tukwila Youth Soccer Association (GRTYSA) which provides recreational soccer for ages U5-U9.  Southlake Mod strives to start a player’s soccer development with a focus on developing basic individual skills in a fun and supporting environment.
