TACOMA, WA— The Northwest Premier League today announces that South Sound Football Club is joining the new elite amateur women’s soccer league to represent the City of Destiny in statewide play.
“The purpose of the South Sound Women’s program is to provide more opportunity for local players to develop and show their potential among a group of similar-minded peers,” says women’s team founder Craig Vincent. “We want to offer players another avenue for reaching the next level.”
The South Sound FC Women join the South Sound FC Men of the Evergreen Premier League. John Crouch owns SSFC and is excited to see growth into the women’s game.
“We are really looking forward to having the new team as a part of our club,” Crouch says. “It’s great for Tacoma and we would like to thank Craig Vincent for stepping up and helping make this happen. It is exciting to see the “South Sound FC” name growing in our area and we know that our teams and players will support each other as we compete in our leagues.”
Vincent says career soccer goals are just a part of the SSFC Women’s mission. “An important objective for the club is to provide our players a family. The South Sound Men’s program has been extremely inspiring regarding this, and we strive to match that atmosphere with the women’s program – and, with success, between the men’s and women’s programs, as well.”
SSFC becomes the second club announced in the NWPL. The Olympic Force of Bremerton were recently also announced.
The Northwest Premier League will be announcing other member clubs in the coming days. League progress can be followed on the official NWPL website at www.NorthwestPremierLeague.com, on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/NWPLsoccer and on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/NWPremierLeague.
