Crossfire Premier Ranked Among Nation’s
Top Clubs By Soccer America
Redmond’s Crossfire Premier received a high honor in January when Soccer America released its annual rankings of the top youth soccer clubs in America. Both Crossfire’s boys and girls programs were ranked among the nation’s top-20 clubs, with the Crossfire girls ranking 18th and the boys 19th.
Only five clubs in the nation saw both its boys and girls programs included in the top-20. Seven of the top-20 boys clubs are MLS Academy programs, meaning Crossfire’s boys rank 12th nationally among traditional clubs.
Soccer America annually selects the top-30 clubs based on success of their teams in national youth competitions over the last three years (2010-12) and the selection of their current players to national youth teams and other national youth events in 2012.
Crossfire currently features a number of players on Division-I college rosters, including U.S. U-20 midfielder Isabel Farrell and former U-20 star Lindsey Elston, each of whom play for the University of Washington.
Congratulations to Crossfire on this outstanding achievement!
