About Us


Our philosophy in youth recreational soccer is to stress enjoyment of the game, while developing skills and a life-long love for soccer.

Today, FWYSA registers over 200 recreational and select teams with upwards of 2,500 players each season.



Fort Worth Youth Soccer Association is a non-profit youth sports organization governed by an elected and volunteer Board of Directors, under the auspices of North Texas State Soccer, U.S. Youth Soccer, and U.S. Soccer Federation. FWYSA was formed in the 1980s as various independent soccer groups united to form a larger and more cohesive federation of soccer organizations in southwestern Tarrant County.

On July 14th the FWYSA board surprised Dale with a retirement party in his honor. Old friends  and family were invited to attend. They got to go back and reminisce about their old soccer times! FWYSA Board wanted to honor Dale for the many years he has been a critical part of FWYSA Association and the Pavilion has now been named the "Dale Story Pavilion" Dale and his wife Diana were also awarded two Hawaiian shirts to retire in  with our FWYSA logo so Dale won't forget what he is missing !
A recycled bench was also purchased with his name on it. So when the season opens up this year come by and have a seat!
 Dale thank you again  for all your countless hours and dedication to all our players and families thru the years!
