While youth soccer doesn’t last forever, one of the most appealing aspects of soccer is that it can be played by anyone at any age. Washington Youth Soccer obviously only oversees youth soccer, which is considered to be players from ages 5-19. Players over the age of 19 can continue playing at the university or professional level, but are otherwise considered amateur players, rather than youth players, and must register with the Washington State Soccer Association. There are also ample non-playing soccer opportunities for young adults wanting to stay in the game, such as coaching, refereeing, and team management.
