SALMON CREEK SOCCER CLUB

History

History

Established in 1976 as a non-profit organization, SCSC provides a youth soccer program serving the enrollment boundaries for the Salmon Creek, Chinook, and Felida elementary school areas for recreational players and all areas for advanced level players.

As the club grew the need for a more competitive program became apparent. In 2004, to accommodate this need, SCSC formed a new Advanced Level division called FCSC (Football Club Salmon Creek) with five highly skilled teams playing at state level, one of which won the Washington State Fred Meyer Commissioner's Cup Championship. In 2005, FCSC doubled in size to ten teams, and has continued to grow.

In February 2006, Salmon Creek Soccer Club introduced Salmon Creek Select. Six teams were formed, which competed in the District 5 fall league, as well as local summer tournaments. In 2006 SCSC fielded a total of 110 teams at all levels, comprised of over 1000 young players ages five to 18, offering a soccer program for children of both genders at a variety of competitive levels. Altogether, SCSC teams participated in over 1,200 games. Providing equipment, uniforms, coaching support, referees, scheduling, and fields is a tremendous challenge. Traditionally, each team provides volunteers to help ensure that the season runs smoothly.

As the soccer scene and regulations have changed the club has continued to focus on having the best and most qualified coaches to train our players and this has resulted in the club producing 6 more state champions including at the highest level in the state, two Regional champions against other states champions and one team becoming National Champions against the best teams in the country, an amazing record for a small club.

Salmon Creek Soccer Club is a member of the Columbia Youth Soccer Federation (CYSF) now renamed as South Washington Youth Soccer Association (SWYSA), the non-profit organization established to govern soccer in the Clark County area under the Washington State Youth Soccer Association, an affiliate of the US Youth Soccer Association and the US Soccer Federation. In conjunction with Hazel Dell Little League and Clark County Parks Department, SCSC has played a significant role in the development of HB Fuller Community Park. SCSC has contributed $180,000+ to this project to date. In fall 2003 Felida Park opened, where SCSC partnered with Clark County Parks Department to develop the finest sand-based turf fields in the county, with contributions of over $135,000. SCSC continues to work with Clark County to expand the sports field inventory within our community for our future soccer players. SCSC also continues to rely on our parent volunteers to make this organization run smoothly, and we thank our past and present Board Members and Committee Volunteers for their contributions.
