SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA—Welcome to the latest edition of “Upstream Update,”our way of sharing what is happening with Snohomish County Football Club with our community.
Open Tryouts Go Well
Open Tryouts were held on March 17 and 18 at Dick Cardinal Stadium at Lakewood High School near Arlington, WA. The Steelheads saw 36 players over the 2 days and built a nice roster of guys for the year. Since then other players have been in contact about individual tryouts. Read our report with photos and videos here.
Training began on Tuesday March 20 at Tambark in Bothell. You can see a photo gallery from the first session on our Facebook page.
We’ve Got Mail, So Do You
It’s been a busy time at Steelheads HQ as we get ready for 2018. Our first-ever official club scarf arrived from Ruffneck Scarves. See a gallery here.
FOUNDERS CLUB Members are getting their scarves first. Some of them even came to open tryouts and picked them up in person. Eventually they will go on sale to the general public.
Speaking of FOUNDERS – we still have spots available so spread the word!
Also coming in the mail were samples of our custom kit that we hope to order once we get a shirt sponsor. These are designed just for us and feature our distinctive fish logo prominently on the lower front portion of the shirts. See a few photos below!
Because we are an independent club (not in a league yet) we are setting up matches one-by-one with local sides. So the schedule is always a work in progress. But we are trying to get as many chances for our players to compete as possible. Watch for updates to our website Schedule page.
We will have away matches in April and May. we hope to host matches in May and June. Tentatively we have a match away on April 14 and a tournament away on April 21. Watch for official announcements soon.
A really great group of guys came out for tryouts. Now we need the support of the county community to build the Steelheads for them and for us. We need sponsors (see info here) and of course we need fans! Please help us spread the word about the new semi-pro men’s soccer club in Snohomish – Steelheads FC!
Our 2018 initial shirts (jerseys) should be here in the next day or two, as should our embroidered logo patches. When they get here the task of adding the logos to the shirts will begin!
The guys will wear these with black shorts and black or white socks.
