Together we’re facing an unprecedented situation affecting both our personal and professional lives. While many things may feel unpredictable now, we want to reinforce that we are here to help. We hope you all are taking every precaution and making decisions with public health in mind as we aim to do our part to help flatten the curve of this pandemic. Our hope is that soon life will be back to normalcy and we all will be back outside enjoying the game we all love.
We had hoped to make the following announcement under different circumstances; however, we also, cannot wait to inform the membership as work is still being done to benefit the club.
The Boards of the Washington East Soccer Club and IEYSA United are announcing the merger of our two organizations to operate as a single club beginning with the 2020-2021 soccer season. This merger presents an opportunity to bring our combined talents together and provide a top tier soccer experience for children of all ages in the Greater Spokane area.
It is important that we provide opportunities for our players and families to compete at the highest level they choose. With this thought in mind, Washington East Soccer Club (WESC) will be the Premier level arm and the newly formed WESC Select will represent our neighborhood model by continuing to have teams in the Central, North, South, Valley and West Plains areas of Spokane. IEYSA United will continue as the recreational level program providing opportunities for players to grow in the love of the game and develop to move on to the competitive level they choose.
WESC and IEYSA United have been providing great soccer opportunities to the youth in the greater Spokane area for many years. We strongly believe that as a joint organization we can better serve the community, opening opportunities to increasingly align players with teams that fit their skill level, while also providing a comprehensive pathway for players and coaches to attain the highest level of play and education.
These changes will become effective following the spring season beginning with the registration of tryouts. Any updated information will be emailed and posted on our websites. We are very excited for what this partnership will do for youth soccer.
