RICHMOND, VA (Via ECNL) The Girls Elite Clubs National League has announced that Pacific Northwest Soccer Club will be joining the Girls ECNL beginning in the 2018-2019 season. The Girls ECNL will be the only national league in which the club will compete, and the focal point of its competitive efforts.

Formed in 2012 from a merger of Greater Renton FC and Dos FC, Pacific Northwest Soccer Club features more than 70 teams and 1,100 players. The club trains and plays games at the world-class Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, WA, which doubles as the training home for Seattle Sounders FC. Over the past three years, the club has had nearly 100 girls’ players commit to play college soccer, with several players called into the U.S. Girls Youth National Team camps at the U16-U18 level.

“I am honored that our club has been selected to join the Girls ECNL,” Girls Director of Coaching Malia Arrant said. “The ECNL’s professional and collaborative approach match our club’s philosophy, and I am excited for our female players to participate in the quality competition and exposure opportunities that the ECNL offers.”

In addition to the competition platform, the Girls ECNL offers player identification and development opportunities for top players in every conference, unique coaching education and club development programs, and player health and education resources.

“We are excited to welcome Pacific Northwest Soccer Club into the Girls ECNL this coming fall,” said ECNL Commissioner Jen Winnagle. “The club’s history, overall philosophy and leadership will make them a great addition to the Northwest Conference.”

Pacific Northwest Soccer Club will begin formal competition in the Girls ECNL in August 2018. Additional new clubs will be announced in the Girls ECNL in the coming weeks.
