Pacific Northwest Soccer Club ("PacNW") is excited to host the 10th Annual PacNW Winter Classic - the top winter soccer tournament in the Country! This year's tournament will be held over two weekends of January 2018. Last year about 100 college coaches from throughout the country attended our showcase tournament, and we expect more to come this year. We are proud to again partner with the Far West Regional League to host many of the top youth soccer teams throughout the Northwest, each of whom are competing for a trip to the U.S. Youth Soccer Region IV Regionals.
The PacNW Winter Classic is based out of the the world-class Starfire Sports Complex with support from our surrounding fields. Starfire Sports is the training home of the Seattle Sounders and features 11 fields of both natural grass and artificial turf (field diagram here). The Winter Classic Tournament Headquarters and Team Check-In will be located in the PacNW Clubhouse, located on the main floor of Starfire near the stairs leading to the Field 3 exit doors.
The Winter Classic is a STAY AND PLAY tournament. We have partnered with RoomRoster and some of the best hotels in the area for some great customer service with your hotel needs and Winter Classic rates. Please follow the instructions when you register. All out of town teams will need to stay at one of our sponsored hotels.

3 Pac Teams To Compete in US Soccer Development Academy 2016-2017 Season
Since 2007, the U.S. Soccer Development Academy has offered a comprehensive program that provides education, resources and support to impact club environments with the goal of developing elite players. The USSDA is the highest level of youth soccer competition in the United States, and there are currently only two other USSDA programs in the state of Washington. The Development Academy philosophy is based on increased training, less total games, and more meaningful games using international rules of competition. It connects National Team coaches directly with the Academy clubs to develop and identify players and coaches for involvement in the youth national team system.
PacNW Soccer Club joins an exclusive group of USSDA clubs that will train individual players at a critical age for skill development. "U.S. Soccer Development Academy Clubs have made a tremendous commitment to player development in the past 9 years and will serve as the example for clubs and leagues throughout the country to provide the best possible environment for young players," said U.S. Soccer Development Academy Director Jared Micklos.
“We are always looking to take our club to the ‘next level,’ and joining the Development Academy is a big step forward,” said John Wilson, president of PacNW Soccer Club. “Our selection to the USSDA validates the philosophy and direction our club is heading in, and we are excited to have our players compete at the highest level.”
For the 2017-18 season, the PacNW Development Academy teams will be comprised of boys players from the U12 - U14
