SNOHOMISH, WA—The Snohomish County FC Steelheads have selected 20 players to be on their match roster for the women’s pre-season indoor soccer match against the Whatcom Waves at the Snohomish Sports Dome on Sunday February 6 at 3 PM (Event Page Link.)

The Steelheads have over 30 players in training, some of whom will eventually make a weekly match roster. As they do, they will be added to the online roster page.
“We expect some players who are not on Sunday’s debut roster to make an impact this season,” says Head Coach Sean Large. Assistant Coach Corey Hendrickson agrees, adding “This pre-season roster is a chance to see some of what we have to work with and where everyone fits in.”

Sarah Stochel knows the indoor game well in part to her connection to Arena Sports. Megan Jones not only competes on the pitch but is also a Physical Therapist. Jordan Lemieux (Ingelmoor High School) was MVP of her college team back in 2018. Amy Sprague scored 5 goals in a playoff match for The Evergreen State College.
