Pacific Northwest Soccer Club and Teams are committed to giving back to our community. We strive to make a difference off the pitch and we are fortunate to have players and staff that are driven to help others in many ways. This season our players volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House in Seattle. Our girls donated several hundred dollars worth of food and toiletries as well as spent their day deep cleaning. It was an amazing experience for our girls. If interested in volunteering, please visit the Ronald McDonald House website for more information: http://www.rmhcseattle.org/content/house

Summer Yates - Girls 99 Maroon, Selected For US National Pool
Summer Yates, G99 M, was selected for the girls U-14 U.S. National soccer player pool. She will at the U.S. National camp January 27th-31st in Phoenix, Arizona. Summer plays on the G99 Maroon team coached by Leighton O’Brien. She was notified of making the U.S. National player pool while playing for her Washington state EPD team at the ODP Championships in Phoenix, Arizona on January 9th-12th. She made the U.S. Region IV team (pool of players from the 14 western states) this past summer. She felt if she performed well there she might have a chance to make the U.S. national team…the majority of the top players in the country seem to be coming out of the southern California area, so getting over that huge hurdle would put her in a good position to be considered for the National team. GOOD LUCK, SUMMER!!!
On October 17th the B97 Maroon team volunteered at NW Harvest. One dozen boys and three parents bagged and boxed 8,800 pounds of pasta which will provide 6,760 meals to northwest families. The boys worked hard to help feed our community. Washington is the 15th hungriest state in the United States. NW harvest is trying to improve this sad statistic by feeding anyone who asks. The agency does require a person demonstrate need. They feel it is hard enough to ask and they would not want to turn away anyone in need.
