Premier

The ISC Gunners Premier program offers the highest level premier soccer training and play.  The Gunners Premier teams compete against other premier clubs in the Northwest Champions League, reserved for only the best teams in the entire Northwest as well as the Washington State Premier League.  Our Gunners U13A girls will be traveling to Denver this year to compete at the NPL Nationals

The Gunners premier program is for athletes with the drive and ambition to raise their game to the top level.   All Gunners coaches are paid professionals who have logged significant hours playing and coaching to know the game inside out.  Our Gunners coaches are among the most highly qualified in all the northwest.

The Club has staff members dedicated to supporting these players and parents. Jimmy Ball, ISC’s Director of Football, oversees the coaching staff and the development of the players in the program.  Colleen Fodness supports the coaches and managers with the administration of the teams.

ISC Gunners Premier Philosophy

At ISC we want to develop players to their highest potential in a positive environment that is both instructive and fun. Our objective is to provide every player the greatest opportunity to develop their soccer skills, discipline, sportsmanship and teamwork.  This is accomplished by hiring the most experienced and qualified professional trainers that have a passion for the game and the desire and enthusiasm to educate young players.  Each player is provided instruction based upon a proven curriculum that is age appropriate and commensurate with the skill level of the players.

-Jimmy Ball, ISC Director of Football
