A message from WPFC BoD President & Technical Director:
WPFC owns the best field complex in Washington State. From late spring to early fall teams are able to spread out over the 20 acres providing an incomparable training and game experience. Unfortunately, from late September to May, we are at the mercy of the weather, and during that time, we are forced onto one turf field for both training and games.

Opposing soccer players have found it tough to keep Elly Aronson off the scoreboard. That’s because it’s tough to match her quick feet. Aronson, a freshman at Gig Harbor High School, was selected for the 2012-13 Washington State Youth Soccer Association’s under-15 Elite Player Development pool. The honor grew when she was chosen for the 18-player travel roster that competed Jan. 11-13 at the U.S. Youth Soccer Region IV championships in Las Vegas.
