This Weekend: October 17/18
Due to the sudden changes in Pierce and King Counties, and the existing issues in Eastern WA and Clark County…many clubs will not be able to play games this weekend due to not meeting the metrics.
However, if your county is cleared to play, please use the existing schedule that has been put out by WYS to play RCL games if your county meets the State Risk Management Assessment metrics.
Clubs may also schedule friendly/exhibitions games if your county meets the State Risk Management Assessment metrics. We feel it’s important that as many clubs, teams, and kids are back on the field playing soccer!
Regional Club League
