Elite Training for Elite Players

What is the Elite Player Program?

Northwest United FC offers extra training sessions for the top 5-7 players from each Premier team with the club. The players are selected by the coach of their team and the Director of Coaching through ability, dedication, attitude and commitement to their team and the game. This is an opportunity for our top players to receive guidance and training to prepare for the PSPL Academy, Sounders Discovery program, College, or, for a few select players, the ID2 program which is a pathway to the National team. 

Elite trainings are run by Kristian Powell, the Northwest United Director of Coaching, and are designed to further challenge our players to get to the next level of soccer. Kristian will be assisted by Northwest United’s top trainers throughout the year. The program enables players to push themselves with other top competitiors in the club, and offer more opportunity to be on the field with top coaching. 

Kristian is a coach for PSPL Academy teams and has helped with the ID2 trainings here in Washington. He is able to offer firsthand knowledge and information on these programs, and assist in getting our players closer to that level. Our club is recognized for producing some top players and each year its showing through players making it to the PSPL surf academy, top college recognition and even National level players. We will give you a pathway and provide the tools to reach your potential.

Please see the Calendar for dates and times of the Elite Player Trainings. The trainings will occur most months, twice a month on Friday nights.
