SEATTLE - June 1, 2018 - The Puget Sound Premier League is pleased to announce that FC Salmon Creek has chosen to play its boys high school teams in the PSPL, starting Fall Season 2018.
The Vancouver, Wash. - based youth soccer club offers premier and select soccer to top competitive players throughout Clark County. Salmon Creek teams have played in the PSPL in the past. Now, however the stakes for high school-age players have never been higher.

The PSPL continues to be a pathway for quality clubs that need a well-run, competitive league to showcase their best players and teams.
"In looking at the options for high school boys teams in the Portland metro area and the level of competition here," said Salmon Creek President Jeff Thomas, "we decided the best place for our older boys teams was in the PSPL. They would get the higher level of competition that we require."
Thomas added that over the years Salmon Creek coaching staff, led by DOC Joe Frimpong, has watched the PSPL grow larger and stronger competitively. "We have seen the league get stronger, which is what we want for our teams," Thomas said.
"We're very happy to welcome Salmon Creek back to the PSPL," President Stanley Holmes said.

They recognize that the PSPL and the Washington NPL league can help their boys' teams reach their highest goals. We appreciate their support."
