Northwest United 2018 Updates and Changes

Read all about the clubs development and movements going forward for this season.

As the club enters the 2017-2018 season, and the second year within the Regional Club League (RCL), we have highlighted all the latest news and changes to the club.

Club Organization:

As we enter the new season, the club has re-organised their Directorship and set up within the club. For the new season Northwest United FC have welcomed our new Assistant Director of Coaching, Matt Brewer. Born in Newquay, England, Matt has a wealth of experience working from recreational soccer to the professional level of the youth game. He has worked in the United States for the last 6 years and will be working alongside our Director of Coaching Kristian in the day to day running of the club. He will also be coaching the B09 Black, G03 Red and G00 Black team. A big warm welcome to NWU!


Alongside the Assistant DOC, we have expanded with Joana Houplin becoming the Girls Director of Coaching, and Marcos Vega overseeing the Junior Academy. Joana's roles will be overseeing the girls side of the club, with Marcos directing our U8-U10 boys program. With 4 Directors now at the club this has shown great strides in both the running and size of the club.

Skagit Valley College:

Starting this Fall, we have formed a great partnership with Skagit Valley College. Once completed we will be using their brand new floodlight turf field for our fall and winter training, as well as game days. This will be a fantastic move going forward which allow us for college and turf field faciltiies for our players to train and play.

Tournament Success:

This year we had our annual Skagit Firecracker tournament, turning out to be our biggest one to date with over 220 teams attending over 3 days! we also added another tournament to our summer schedule, the 3 v 3 Skagit River Challenge! Our one day 3 v 3 tournament brought over 30 teams and the club now has 2 summer tournaments for 2018!
