Gunners Select is the one of the Club's travel programs which generally plays 6 months out of the year. The teams are selected through a tryout process in the winter/spring and are typically led by a licensed volunteer coach.
The objective of the Select program is to provide an opportunity to develop and play at a higher level of soccer than in recreational, but without the longer time and financial commitments of premier soccer.
Interested players must tryout for the Select program and should be willing to meet a higher level of commitment than the recreation program. Most Select teams play in the Puget Sound Premier League (PSPL). Depending upon the division the team is placed into, travel for away games can occasionally be anywhere in the State.
