The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
SEATTLE, WA — AC Seattle, the Italian-owed local club that came on to the Washington soccer scene in 2013 and won the WPLS Northwest Conference, today announces their women’s squad will return in 2014 to the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL), and that a Men’s team will be formed for the summer as well.
The press release below, translated by the club from Italian to English, does not indicate what league the AC Seattle Men will be a part of.
See the release below:
WPSL 2014 – Ac Seattle will attend to the Wpsl 2014: for the second year the ‘Seattle’s Italians’ will take part of this tournament. As the past year, many players from all the peninsula will be involved in the project and in the two months of the Seattle’s stay will be paid a lot of attention on the formative project in addition to the coaching one. There will be English courses based on the starting level, several guided tours of the splendid Washington State’s capital, personalised trainings with the most modern techniques and with professional trainers. Obviously there will be the chance for all the girls that will be involved on the ‘AC SEATTLE 2014’ project to win scholarships from colleges that will follow our team’s games searching for potential athletes for their courses.
It will be also a real Show Case to be hired from a professional team of the American League (WProLeague). In addition to that, all the athletes will have the chance to live a real American’s life experience. In the 2 months’ stay they will live in close quarters with the hosting families and with the American’s teenagers. This will expand their horizons with incitements and cultural exchanges. In a situation of a more and more demanding job market, where a foreign experience is one of the essential criterion in the personal selection, this project will become an additional value of the participant’s curriculum.
AC SEATTLE MAN – In addiction to the past year format for the young women that want to participate to the WPSL, a men’s section will be activated with the participation of a summer tournament, similar to the WPSL. The same group’s activities for the women will be forecast for men (English courses based on the starting level, several guided tours of the splendid Washington State’s capital, personalised trainings with the most modern techniques and with professional trainers): this experience will become useful for both personal and life levels. Also for the men this will be the chance to highlight themselves to be hired from a College or a MLS’ team, a growing championship in the last few years.
SEATTLE YOUTH CAMP 2014 – The Seattle Youth Camp will give the chance to girls and boys from 15 to 18 to spend three weeks in Seattle with or without their family following along. There will be a lot of different activities, with everyday English courses in arranged schools with American’s teachers. This will be a life and study’s experience that could open a shot in an American College to this young girls and boys. Three study and practice’s weeks in which every participant will have a chance to demonstrate his skills in various tournaments to try to enter in an American College or in a MSL team/W.PROLeague.
