As part of the 50th Anniversary of Washington Youth Soccer, we wanted to know who were the Top 50 Soccer Citizens in Washington State. Soccer Citizens are 1) Community leaders whose experience participating in youth soccer in Washington helped them develop life skills that lead to success off the field and in the community; or 2) Others such as great coaches and administrators who, by devoting countless hours to youth soccer, allowed players to develop life skills that they could carry with them for the rest of their lives.

After a public vote, a panel of long-time, WA soccer community members helped to create the list of the Top 50 Soccer Citizens.
