The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
The Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) will be returning to the state of Washington this winter as all of last year’s sides are planning to come back for the latest campaign. Tacoma Stars and Kitsap Pumas have released tryout information.

The Tacoma Stars have not announced where they will play to start their PASL season, or whether or not they will be classified as “pro” or “premier,” a distinction that sends them up against one set of foes or another. Right now the PASL is workingout out the kinks of its alignment and schedule. When that is completed the Stars say they will also announce further details about the new season. Stars owner Marian Bowers is in the process of building a new indoor facility, but it is not expected to be ready by season kick off in late November.
Stars tryouts will be held Thursday, September 29th from 9 PM to 11 PM at Starfire Sports Complex (indoors) in Tukwila. See fee & details here.
No cleats are allowed at Starfire.
The Kitsap Pumas appear to be headed to the PASL Premier this year after playing with the Stars in the “Pro” configuration last season. This would keep the Bremerton club local with rivals in Bellingham, Wenatchee, Snohomish and Central Oregon. It might mean that the Pumas and Stars won’t be “officially” scheduled against each other. We’ll have to wait for the league to finalize that.
Kitsap Pumas Arena League tryouts are to be held October 1 and 2 (Saturday / Sunday) at Olympic Soccer & Sports Center. See fee & details here.
