ISC Gunners WPSL Team
The Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) is an independent, highly competitive national league whose main focus is on the development of competitive premier women's soccer teams. There are over 70 teams participating from all over the United States. The team was formed with the idea of giving local women, as well as youth players within the club and surrounding areas, the opportunity to play competitive soccer in a professional environment. The vision for our WPSL team is formed with the idea of making women's soccer a community sport in Issaquah and being woven into the fabric of the residents of Issaquah and the surrounding areas. ISC WPSL also makes every effort to bring quality soccer to all levels of the community and to promote the stature of female athletes as role models for our youth.

ISC Gunners joined the WPSL in 2012 and has been a top competitor in the Northwestern Conference since its inaugural season. The team took second place in back to back seasons in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, the Gunners took the Northwest league title and represented the Northwest Conference at Regionals in Southern California. During the 2015 season, ISC again took the Northwest league title and went all the way to the regional finals for the first time in the program's history. They narrowly missed a trip to Nationals, losing 2-1 to SoCal FC with only 5 minutes remaining in the match. In the 2016 season, our ISC Gunners FC WPSL team once again finished 2nd in the league. During the 2017 season, our ISC Gunners WPSL team tied for 1st place with 15 points, but missed regionals based on one goal in the goal differential category. In 2018 the WPSL Team finished 4th in the PacNW division.
Our ISC Gunners FC WPSL team is looking to take back the title in the 2019 season.
The WPSL season runs from May 1st to August 1st. There is a Regional tournament held the second weekend of July and a National tournament held the third weekend of July.
