PORT ORCHARD, WA—The Olympic Force Men and Women held open tryouts on Saturday March 25 at South Kitsap High School’s Kitsap Bank Stadium in Port Orchard. The Force are entering their third season in the Evergreen Premier League (Men) and second in the Northwest Premier League (Women).
The Force have a working roster of players already lined up for their squads but the open tryouts gave new faces a chance to shine. The afternoon session for the women was bathed in bright sunshine that seemed to officially announce the return of adult soccer statewide play in Washington.
The Men fought wind gusts (gallery) and cooler temperatures for the evening try outs, but there were good vibes, handshakes and plenty of smiles as the Force welcomed both newcomers and faces from previous outdoor seasons. There was also a strong presence of indoor players from Olympic’s recent Western Indoor Soccer League (WISL) season where the club made it to a second straight Finals.
