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. Issaquah joined the league in 2012. In 2012, Issaquah Soccer Club formed its first Women's Premier Soccer League team (WPSL). The team was formed with the idea to give local women, as well as you players within the club and surrounding clubs the opportunity to play competitive soccer in a professional environment. At ISC, the Vision for our WPSL team is formed with the idea in mind 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 FC WPSL team took second place in two consecutive seasons, 2012 and 2013. In the 2014 season, ISC took the Northwest league title and travelled to Southern CA to regionals. In the 2015 season, ISC again took the Northwest league title and went all the way to the regional finals for the first time in history where they lost 2-1 to SoCal FC with only 5 minutes remaining in the match. In the 2016 season, our ISC Gunners FC WPSL team took 2nd place in the league. In the 2017 season, our ISC Gunners WPSL team tied for 1st place with 15 points, but lost out 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.
