MARYSVILLE, WA— Today the Northwest Premier League (NWPL) announces that Fuerza FC of Marysville (Snohomish County) is joining the new statewide women’s soccer league after two season in the WPSL.
Fuerza FC HP (“High Performance”) Women were founded back in 2014 and played their first season in the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL) that year. The club returned to the WPSL, playing out of Quil Ceda Stadium in Marysville, in 2015.
“We are a club in the Everett and Marysville area comprised of local college, premier high school age players and local premier level adult players,” says Tony Carillo, Club President.”We remove labeling of players and provide our players professional style training and we also allow each player to develop at their pace or level.”
Fuerza FC is connected with B Fut, The Institute of Brazilian Football, sharing the training techniques and overall philosphy of the Brazilian style of play. “Fuerza” directly translates to “Force,” or strength

The FFC Women of the NWPL are just a part of a larger soccer family in greater Snohomish at Fuerza, which also has teams U-11 through adult in both genders.
Carillo’s perspective about community comes from seeing the side of the game where all kids get a chance to play.“We have had to learn to be creative. I took a trip to Brazil to learn how BFUT and pro clubs run their programs there. This trip taught me a lot, but most importantly it taught me that if the community wants to make a difference for the kids, we have to work together.”
Fuerza also runs a very successful Futsal program in Marysville.
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 atwww.Facebook.com/NWPremierLeague.

Players and coaches can enhance their skills in the NWPL during the summer break from college. Families and fans can cheer their local stars.
