The mission of Puget Sound Gunners FC is to promote and to grow “the beautiful game” of soccer in the North Sound and Northwest Washington area. We work to be a competitive team through commitment and focus as a result of assisting team members and participants in their various forms of involvement. We are committed to continue assisting our players in achieving their goals of playing at the highest levels. We pledge to create an environment that allows players to improve their game not only through outside competition but from within the organization.

Puget Sound Gunners FC commits to being positive role models who value honesty, integrity and fair play. Our team partners display the ideals of sportsmanship, competition and teamwork without conflict. We strive to provide a fun and safe environment to foster a passion for the game.

The successes of Puget Sound Gunners FC are built through grassroots work in the community, local schools, local soccer organizations, partnerships with business and media, charity work and effective marketing. We are constantly collaborating with local organizations, coaches, players and fans with the goal of working together to advance soccer at all levels within Snohomish County and the northwest region.

While the Gunners provide exciting entertainment for families and people of all ages with our semi-professional men’s team, we are also very involved with youth players. We provide numerous activities for area youth including free and economical soccer programs and clinics. We also partner with businesses to donate children’s tickets to various local organizations, including surrounding-area school districts.

To accomplish this, we further commit to:

**Developing player character, self-confidence, discipline, dedication and respect of teammates and opponents through quality coaching

**Promoting high quality training through the Puget Sound Gunners FC youth program to prepare younger athletes for the next level

**Nurturing relationships with local and international professional soccer clubs
