Somerset Titans serves the multi-sport athlete who is looking to play at a more competitive level than recreational soccer, but may not want to play soccer year round. We provide professional coaches, fully licensed, not parent coaches.
Every year the club forms one, sometimes two, boys and girls teams for each age group. Teams are formed every spring through tryouts. Once teams are formed, training begins in early June. Practices are held twice a week and schedules are determined by the club.
Most teams will participate in one to two tournaments or jamborees throughout the summer season. During the summer, teams are evaluated by coaches and coaching directors and placed in competitive divisions that are appropriate for each individual team. A team that is well placed will win as many matches as they lose, and draw any number of matches. In this way players are receiving a proper challenge to help them develop their skills.
All Somerset Titans teams play in the Puget Sound Premier League (PSPL). PSPL teams play a 10-match schedule in the Fall. If a team elects to play in spring, they will play a 8-match schedule. Travel is generally within a 60 minute radius of Somerset, occasionally more, and within King and Snohomish counties.
Somerset Titans are on a two-year uniform cycle, which means that your player's uniform will change every two years. Boys Kits and Girls Kits are approximately $300 . Kits include 2 jerseys, 2 shorts, 2 pairs of socks, and 1 training top, and a warm-up jacket and pants. There are numerous optional items your player may want.
All players registering to a Somerset Titans team should expect the following:
Registration fees allow the club to operate in a fiscally responsible manner to cover registration, administrative costs, referees, facility rentals, field maintenance, and coaching. Somerset Titans does offer payment options to help spread the cost over time.
All teams require team dues from every family that ranges from $100 - $150 for each season. This fund generally covers tournament entry fees, team communication platform, and contribution towards equipment. The team dues are in addition to the player registration fee.
The Birth Year Chart below will help you to identify the age group for your player based on their birth year.

The club encourages players to tryout in their own birth year age group unless playing in an older birth year age group is in the best interests of the player and their development, and this is a decision supported by both parents and coaches. In making this decision, some considerations are:
Tryouts: Players tryout in the late spring.
Teams may enter one or two summer tournaments, jamborees, or scrimmages. All tournaments will be in the Puget Sound Area.
Fall League season. Boys and Girls teams compete in 10 games in the Puget Sound Premier League (PSPL).
Spring season is optional for those that wish to continue to play and stay together as a team. Teams that elect to play in spring will compete in 8 games in the PSPL.
However, should a team not want to continue but individual players do, we can combine players to form teams. Spring season is a great time for players to try new positions, train with other age groups, and generally experiment in a low pressure environment. For those teams participating in spring league, State Cup will come at the end of the season in April.
