College Soccer Bloggers Wanted, and are looking for bloggers and / or reporters to help us cover college soccer this Fall!

We have been in contact with many of the Sports Information Directors around the Sound and are lining up players and coaches to send us exclusive blogs about their clubs.

If you are a player and would like to blog for one of our websites, please contact your coach and your SID. They can contact me: David Falk at

If you are a fan, parent or friend, please consider sending some kind of report when you go to a match. It doesn't have to be anything lengthy or professional, just your own view of what went down in a few words.

Here is how our coverage looks so far...
we've got coverage coming from Seattle University Redhawks
we've got coverage coming from Tacoma CC, Pierce CC and possibly South Puget Sound CC.
we've got coverage coming from Peninsula CC

If your local school isn't listed under one of the websites above, please let them know so we can give them some extra love, too!

Tacoma Stars 2008-09 Tryout Information


The Tacoma Stars today announced they will hold a tournament formatted open tryout at The Soccer Center in Tacoma on Labor Day weekend. The cost to tryout is $35 and every participant is guaranteed to get three matches with different teammates to prove themselves in front of the Tacoma Stars staff.

Players ages 16 and over interested in playing the highest level of indoor soccer in the area are encouraged to try out. The Stars will be filling spots on both their first team competing in the Premier Arena Soccer League’s Northwest Division and their developmental reserve squad based out of The Soccer Center. Reserve players will be available for call up to the first team as warranted and needed through the course of the PASL season.

“This year we’re holding our tryout in a format that will allow players to get more than a brief glance over a two hour period,” said Tacoma Stars general manager Mati Bishop. “We want every player that tries out to get a good look and have a good experience in the process.”

Training for the Tacoma Stars will start in September and the PASL season runs from December through March.

How It Works

Each player in the tryout will be scheduled to play three matches through the course of the day. These matches will be with and against different groups of players selected based on the luck of the draw.
Players will be evaluated on their overall indoor soccer skill, leadership and organizational abilities, competitive attitude, versatility and attitude.

After every player has played three matches, some players may be chosen to play additional matches for further evaluation.

No results will be announced at the tryout. Players will be notified by telephon
e or email following the tryout about their status with the team.
