Reaching out to find players to represent Steelheads FC

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA—Steelheads FC are networking with the local adult soccer community in Snohomish County to make sure the word gets out about the new club.

Steelheads FC Hispanic Community Coordinator Felipe Aguilera  met with players from local side CD Lynnwood on Sunday to share information about SnoCo FC.

“They won the D1 Championship in the Olympic Soccer League this spring,” Felipe says. “They have been getting the attention of some Hispanic local media — like LaRaza Newspaper putting them on their front page for wining the title.”
