Update: May 16, 2020
Like you, we are excited to get our teams back onto the fields. Crossfire Select will be following Washington Youth Soccer's phased approach to returning to regular activities. We will continue to monitor the situation, with careful consideration for the health and safety of our players and coaches. Please review a list of protocols as we return to play to help keep our families and coaches safe: washingtonyouthsoccer.com.
Update: April 1, 2020
In consideration of the latest guidance from the federal government, we are extending the suspension of soccer activities through April 30th. We will review this decision later in April and keep you updated. We hope all of our Crossfire Select families are healthy and safe during these troubling times. Thank you for your continued support of Crossfire Select.
We are still here, just on pause.
We care deeply about our players, families, coaches, volunteers and staff. These are uncertain times and none of us are immune to the economic impacts the virus is having on our families and our organization.
The developments of the last few weeks are unprecedented and Crossfire Select is trying our best to plan the road ahead in a time of so much uncertainty. We remain committed to our players and families and we will be offering programming again just as soon as restrictions are lifted.
Update: March 12, 2020
Please withhold refund requests for NPSL spring and futsal. Doing so will allow us to cover program expenses that we've already incurred and determine what refunds the Club is eligible to receive from facility rentals. Our hope is to reschedule all games and programs for a later date.
We appreciate the support from our soccer community helping to secure the future of Crossfire Select. We will do everything possible to quickly recover from the pandemic and come out stronger than ever.
Thank you for your patience,
Crossfire Select Board

ALL GAMES AND PRACTICES SUSPENDED THROUGH MARCH
Crossfire Select will be following the lead of Washington Youth Soccer (WYS), and suspending all games and practices until April 1st, 2020. At this time we do not know if NPSL games will be cancelled or rescheduled at a later date. More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
The following is a message from WYS:
Effective today, 3-11-2020, the RCS will follow the message coming from the WA Governor office with regard to RCL teams playing and training.
RCL Games will be postponed until after April 1st, 2020.
Club practices will be suspended until March 30th, 2020.
As the coronavirus is a fluid situation, the above statement is subject to change as we will continue to monitor the situation going forward.
Update: March 6, 2020
Recommendations for families and players this weekend:
People ages 60+, those with underlying medical conditions and very young children should not attend games.
Limit spectators where possible.
Anyone with respiratory viral symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose) should not attend or participate in any games.
No handshakes or fist bumps before, during or after the game.
Bring hand sanitizer to matches and use before and after.
Do not share water bottles.
Wipe bench with sanitizing wipes before and after game.
Coaches or players who do not feel comfortable playing can opt out without penalty. Players please inform your coach. Coaches please let the Coaching Director know.
We will continue to monitor the situation and review our plans. We will provide another update next week.
Update: March 5, 2020
Perrigo Park will be closed from March 6th through March 27th. We've rescheduled the games for this weekend, moving all the games previously scheduled at Perrigo to Marymoor. Two games have been cancelled.
High school girls have priority since they are playing their regular season games. Their games were moved to Marymoor, and scheduled as close to the original time as possible. Some Spring league games have been moved to other time slots.
Below is the new schedule for the weekend of March 6th. The referee site has been updated.
Update: March 4, 2020
We are concerned by the effect of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on our community in Washington. The safety of our players, coaches and staff is our highest priority and we are monitoring the situation and will continue to follow all public health guidance.
We defer shaking hands between team captains at the coin toss and between referees, players and coaches pre-game and post-game.
Do NOT bring your player to practices or games if they are sick or have a cough. They will be asked to leave Crossfire Select events.
Please be sure to communicate with your coach if your child will not be in attendance.
It is up to each individual family to do what is in the best interest of their family.
Given that projections call for a much larger spread of the virus, we will continue to monitor information from several health departments and school districts for updates on how this may affect our club. We are also working with Washington Youth Soccer, to determine the impact on remaining games with NPSL, RCL and State Cup.
