2009 Wolves: tryouts and 115 matches ahead

From www.SeattleWolvesFC.com
2009 will prove to be the most exciting year in Seattle Wolves history. With more talent within the player pool than ever before, the Wolves will be competing in over 115 matches in 2009.

Competitions include the Pacific Coast Soccer League Premier Division (May-July), US Lamar Hunt Open Cup Qualifying (May), USASA Nationals Qualifying (May), professional and collegiate friendly matches, as well as qualifying attempts for the Sheila Anderson Memorial Challenge Cup (July) and JF Kennedy Cup (August).

The Wolves preparation for 2009 competition has already begun. The club resumed training on Monday January 5th after a short Winter break. With a full friendly schedule, including some of the best universities in Seattle, and a trip to the East Coast to play the Harrisburg City Islanders and Crystal Palace Baltimore, of the USL Second Division, the Wolves will have plenty of opportunities to take a look at players in preparation for this Summer's busy campaign.

SPSL Premier Season Opener Saturday

Coming off of a SPSL Premier Championship, the Seattle Wolves FC will begin their next SPSL Premier campaign on Saturday (January 10, 2009).

The Wolves finished the Fall SPSL Premier season outscoring their last four opponents 38-3, and winning the playoff semi-finals and finals by a combined score of 14-1.

Key to the Wolves exciting, attacking style of play, forward Mark Conrad, scored twice in both the SPSL semi-finals and finals. Andrew Peterson took a few minutes out of training on Monday to talk to Mark, in 2009's first installment of Seattle Wolves Player Profiles.

Saturday's SPSL Premier season opener versus Team X kicks off at 7:00pm at the Starfire Sports Complex , field 2.
