Thank you for your interest in the women's soccer program at the University of Puget Sound.

Puget Sound is recognized as one of the best programs in the country. We draw Division I caliber student-athletes who are looking for a genuine educational experience -- that is, a well-rounded collegiate experience that emphasizes academics, meaningful student-faculty interaction and individual student development.

We seek student-athletes who will share and be committed to our ultimate program goal of winning a national championship AND having the highest team grade point average in the country ... in the same year!

Our program offers talented athletes an opportunity to develop and compete in a truly national caliber environment. We have been fortunate enough to win multiple conference and regional championships as well as consistently reaching the sectional finals (NCAA "Elite 8"), as well as competing in the national championship game in 2004.

Our players have also had the honor of being consistently recognized for all-conference, all-region and all-American teams.

Off-field success has been a cornerstone of the women’s program. Our program’s philosophy is designed around minimizing conflicts with classes and allowing student-athletes the time they need to excel academically. Our players consistently receive National, District, and Conference recognition for their achievements in the classroom.

Invitational tryouts are held each year in August where 20-25 players are selected for the permanent roster. No returning spots are guaranteed, so your impact to the program can be immediate.

Financial aid in the form of academic scholarships, need based grants, guaranteed student loans, college work-study and a host of other resources are available to qualified students.  You will need to apply for admission and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 1, for priority consideration. You may obtain the necessary forms by calling 253-879-3214 or 800-396-7192.

We bring together highly motivated student athletes who are committed to discovering their full potential. If you would like further details about our women's soccer program, please contact me via e-mail or phone. I truly believe that your education and soccer experience at the University of Puget Sound will be one of the best in the country.
