Avery Carson leaves NWU for Reign FC Academy!

Avery Carson leaves NWU for Reign FC Academy!

Since Avery was 9 years old, she has been wearing the black and red colors of Northwest United FC and representing our club at several different levels. This year, Avery joined the Reign FC Academy as a full-time player! At 15 years old and training 3-4 times a week in Seattle, their team has just finished the fall season in November. Avery played half of the season with the 02/03 team, and the other half playing with the 00/01 team, scoring 2 goals with them. She also played in the DA showcase in Florida. 

Quote from Avery:

The coaches for NWU have taught me everything I know today, from ball skills, different passing techniques, positioning, and finally how to work and push yourself harder for something you want. Kristian has been a huge impact on my journey with all he has taught me, the extra elite player practices, and letting me practice extra with the 04 and 03 boys.

The tools that United has given me has transformed me into the player I am today with the Reign Academy.

Playing with the Reign is very challenging, the foundation that United has given me helped me transition to my new team.

From Coach Kristian:

Avery has put in a tremendous amount of work here at Northwest United to get where she wanted to go. She started at U-11 for me as a half-outfield player and keeper solely to help the team, and it is exactly her “team first” attitude that I think has really set the foundation for where she is today.

Avery enthusiastically did the work required to reach her goals.

An opportunity arose with Sam Laity, with whom the club has a good relationship. He's an Academy coach and assistant coach of the Seattle Reign Woman's professional team, where the likes of Megan Rapinoe and Hope Solo have played. He looked at Avery and saw that she would be a great fit for the Development Academy there, and she worked her way into the team. We at Northwest United wish her the best of luck with all her aspirations in the game and are so proud of what she has achieved.

Congratulations Avery, the whole club is proud of your effort and achievements!
