Nortac Soccer Programs & Registration Information

Overview - NORTAC has four soccer programs that allow boys and girls, ages 4-19, to play soccer and develop a love of the game: Micro, Small-Sided, Recreational and Select. These programs allow players to make a natural progression as they grow older and improve their skills. Although many players start out at a young age, kids can join a team at any age - no prior experience is necessary! Detail about each of the programs, as well as registration and fee info are listed below. Each of the programs starts at a different time of the year, so please read the info carefully and check our website regularly for announcements.

Age Requirements - Teams are formed based on the age of the player. For example, a U13 team means that the players were under the age of 13 as of the cutoff date. Since the age cutoff for all teams in Washington State is July 31st, you can play on a U13 team if you are 12 years old (or younger) as of July 31st. If you turn 13 on August 1st, you can still play U13.

Volunteers - In order to make the programs successful, we are always looking for coaches and assistant coaches. Many of us that are heavily involved in the club started off as parents who were curious about the sport. Today, we have a love of the game and a desire to give back to the kids. If you are one of these "curious parents", give us a call at 253-353-2108 or contact us at No experience is necessary - we love training parents as much as we love training kids!

Registration & Fees

To be a player on a 2014 NORTAC team, please use the following process:

1. Register online - select the registration web page. Once a player is registered, they will be placed on a team and will be contacted by the coach. Players must register every year, even if they played on a Nortac team last year. If you have trouble with the on-line registration, please contact the club registrar.

2. Parents must provide the coach with a copy of the player's legal birth certificate or current valid passport. Hospital complimentary birth certificates cannot be used. Coaches will turn in birth certificates for all players on their team. Certificates are not required for players who played on a Nortac team last year - we already have a copy on file. Parents must also provide the coach with a signed medical waiver.

3. The cost to play on a Nortac team is the club registration fee plus any miscellaneous costs as determined by the team coach / manager. The club fee fee depends on the player's age and is listed below:

  • Micro Soccer U5 - U6 - $60

Registration deadline for players not currently playing with a team or assigned to a team (you know who your coach is) is June 30th. We make our best effort to place all players on teams and create new teams as needed. In order to do so, deadlines must be followed. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar at

Players that wish to play "up" in an older age group, please register at the correct and then email the registrar advising him of the registration and what age group/gender the player is looking for.

The club fee helps to cover a wide variety of costs such as uniform shirts, field rental and maintenance, equipment (goals, nets, field marking paint, etc.), referees, and insurance. Scholarships of 50% off fees are available(limit 2 per team). Please contact the registrar for more information.

Shin guards and cleats are mandatory and are provided by the player. NORTAC provides a reversible (red/white) jersey or teams may decide to purchase their own uniforms. Please contact your team coach / manager for this information. Secondary Insurance (for player injuries) is provided by the Washington State Youth Soccer Association (WSYSA) and is included in the fees.

As noted above, players may have to pay addtional cost at the discretion of the team coach / manager. These costs cover items such as:

  • Fees for teams that play in State tournaments
  • Summer tournaments
  • End of season parties
