Islander FC registration open for fall season | Sports brief

Islander FC, a youth soccer club on Mercer Island, recently opened registration for its fall teams.

The program, which will offer teams U8 through U10, practices on Mercer Island twice a week starting in August and plays in the Puget Sound Premier League. Games begin in September and are played at the Starfire Complex in Tukwila. Registration closes on May 28.

Islander FC will be offering a Friday training session from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the IMS sunken field to give players an idea of what the program is like. The training camp runs through June 15. All coaches come from BEST, the British European Soccer Training system.

After the registration closes, the club will be holding several training practices to evaluate players, but will not be cutting players from teams.

The club will also offer camps to players this summer in six-week formats.
