That’s a quick promo for a CBS TV show that airs nationally this Saturday (June 21st) – featuring a West Seattle Soccer Club team, the GU13 WS Valkyries. Their proud coach Stefan Persson, who’s also on the WSSC board, explains:

We had the great privilege of being selected to participate in a CBS Game Changers episode featuring Seattle Reign FC and U.S. Women’s National Team player Megan Rapinoe. The filming of the episode took place at Madison Middle School and at Memorial Stadium.

What started as a day of practice for the girls, culminated in them being surprised by Megan at Memorial Stadium, where they got to meet her and then practice and play soccer. It was a fantastic day, with one of our most prominent female professional athletes giving back to kids, creating a wonderful connection between our local community and Seattle Reign FC.

CBS Game Changers is a nationally televised show featuring youth sports, focusing on sportsmanship and passion for the game.

The show airs at different times on different CBS stations around the country; we found it on the official schedule for KIRO (Channel 7) at 3:30 pm this Saturday.

  3. Thanks to Megan Rapinoe for spending a beautiful, sunny Seattle afternoon out there on the pitch with the Valkyries. And a special thank you to Coach Stefan for devoting a significant amount of time arranging this amazing opportunity for his team. Those young ladies are very fortunate to have such a skilled, devoted, and caring coach.
