Community sports roundup: SnoCo Sports HoF banquet canceled

Plus, Snohomish County FC adds a women’s team, the Snohomish Soccer Dome gets new management and more.

The 2020 Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame class is still going to have its day in the spotlight, but that day will be in 2021 rather than 2020.

The Sports Hall of Fame committee has canceled the 2020 banquet, which would have taken place in September, due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the 2020 class will be honored alongside the 2021 class during the 2021 banquet, which is scheduled for Sept. 22, 2021.

Meanwhile, steps are being taken to honor this year’s class, which consists of eight individuals and one team, in a timely fashion. The 2020 banquet program will be printed and available in late August/early September. The 2020 wall mural will be designed and placed on the Sports Hall of Fame wall at Angel of the Winds Arena in late August/early September. And a video will be produced to recognize the 2020 induction class and will be released in September.

Snohomish County FC to add women’s team

Snohomish County FC, home of the 2019 Western Washington Premier League champion Steelheads, is adding a women’s team for the 2021 season.

The Snohomish County FC Silvers, an elite women’s outdoor soccer team, will begin play in 2021. It is yet to be determined whether the Silvers will join a league in 2021, or spend their inaugural season playing friendlies, the way the Steelheads did in their first season in 2018.

Snohomish County FC is based out of Lakewood High School.

Snohomish Soccer Dome becoming Snohomish Sports Dome

The Snohomish Soccer Dome indoor facility, which was forced to close in May as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, is being re-established under new management as the Snohomish Sports Dome. The facility will be available for use and rental for a wide range of sports.

The official opening date remains to be determined, pending Washington State guidelines regarding COVID-19.
