(WSASA Release) The Washington State Adult Soccer Association (WSASA) is pleased to announce that the new Western Indoor Soccer League (WISL) has chosen to affiliate with our Association and the United States Adult Soccer Association. The new five team league will kick off in November 2014 and will feature the following clubs: Arlington Aviators FC, Bellingham United FC, Oly Town Artesians, Tacoma Stars and Wenatchee Fire FC.
The affiliation was the result of hard work on the part of John Crouch, who is the commissioner of the WISL. John has been involved in elite indoor soccer since 2011. His team, the Shock, made a trip to the national indoor finals (2012-13). In 2014-15 the Shock are joining forces with the Tacoma Stars. Outdoors, John was the major force behind South Sound FC, a charter member of the 2014 Evergreen Premier League- Washington (EPLWA).
“The WSASA is pleased to be working with John Crouch and all of the clubs in the WISL as they kick off a new league and season in November 2014,” said Tim Busch, WSASA President. “Our mission is to provide administrative support for the growth of adult soccer in the Evergreen State. We are proud to partner with the WISL in this effort.”
