“We are not governed by the Washington State Soccer Organization therefore have the opportunity to hire a PRIVATE world class training club to teach, monitor and provide advanced skill development to our youth soccer teams. As parents, we know that our goal is to seek out the most professional training available for our youth athletes.

Islander FC has contracted with a prominent team with over 25 years of elite soccer playing and coaching experience throughout the US and UK. We are excited to bring this to our girls and boys!

We are excited to have our U8, U9, and U10 teams play at Starfire and to practice here on the Island.”
