WENATCHEE, WA—North Central Washington Alliance FC are pleased to
announce that the elite adult Wenatchee-area club are partnering with two youth clubs in
the valley. NCW Alliance FC will connect with Osborn Performance Systems FC
(OPS FC) and Wenatchee United SC to begin building a performance pathway for
players to advance their soccer skills.
“This partnership represents a big step forward for soccer in North Central Washington,”
says Alliance General Manager Javier Reyna. “As an adult Organization we believe in
how important it is to connect and work with local youth clubs.”
Going forward NCW Alliance FC jerseys will feature OPS FC and United SC logos on the sleeves and the counterpart youth clubs will feature Alliance’s. The recognition achieved as each side takes the pitch is a symbolic starting point for the future interactions between the clubs and their coaches and players. As members of the Northwest Premier League (NWPL) the Alliance Women are currently the top level of play in the valley and surrounding areas.
OPS FC Technical Director Mike Osborn anticipates an important partnership between
the Alliance and the two youth clubs. “It has been a long-term goal of ours to provide a
clear developmental pathway for the youth soccer player in North Central Washington.
We’re very excited about the opportunities this partnership will create for the youth in
United SC President Cindy Abouammo looks forward to the enhanced
relationships. “We are thrilled that OPS FC, United SC, and NCW Alliance will be
working together to create a clear pathway for soccer players in our region. This coming
year is going to bring a tremendous amount of opportunity for youth and adult players in
North Central Washington. As we move forward together in our partnership we will
work together to grow a program that covers all aspects of player development, college
soccer preparation, and semi-pro competition.”
