Players North Soccer Club 02 Girls NPL, which the seven girls currently play for, is the most successful
girls club soccer team in Northern Nevada history. The team is currently ranked 7 th in the country. Since
the team earned its National Premier League status playing in the NorCal Premier League in June 2017,
the team has amassed 66 wins with 14 additional draws and only 13 losses. The team has won 3
consecutive Surf Cup Championships and 2 Surf Cup College Cups in the last 3 years in addition to
several other tournament, NorCal and GBYSL league championships.
These 7 now make a total of 8 college commits. The team currently has several others entertaining
offers to play college soccer next year. No team in Northern Nevada history has had as many players
from one youth team be offered the opportunity to play at the next level.
Tanner and Woodruff have played together on the same soccer team for over 11 years. Briggs joined the
team in 2013 with Conley and Moss joining the following year in 2014. Flocchini and Rabideau joined the
team a few months ago.
Casey Tate, now the men’s and women’s coach at Oregon Tech University who has coached Tanner,
Woodruff, Briggs, Conley and Moss since they joined the team has this to say, “I could not be more
proud of these five student athletes! They each decided at a very young age that collegiate soccer was
their goal and they have spent the past 10+ years determined to achieve it through hard work and
unwavering dedication. It has not been without adversity or sacrifice, but because of these athlete’s
passion for the sport and through the support of their families and teammates they stayed the course
and ultimately achieved collegiate playing opportunities. I have no doubt their hard work on the field
and in the classroom will take them far in their college careers and beyond!
“Today’s NLI (National Letter of Intent) signing by these extraordinary seven young ladies, is the
culmination of years of dedication, focus, sacrifice, and belief required to become and elite athlete.
Dedication to the demands of the sport, focus upon their development and sacrifice required to be an
elite athlete. The belief in themselves is what afforded them the right to dream and today, those dreams
have become reality!” says Jason Goodson, Director of Coaching for Players North Soccer.
Randy Ritter, president of Players North Soccer club added this, “The club is extremely proud of what
they have all accomplished and we look forward to following their journey as they begin to write the
next chapter of their life.”
Players North Soccer Club started by Randy Ritter and Heather Johnson with three teams as
International Soccer Club in 2006. Since then, the club has grown exponentially with the merger of
Players Soccer Club of Las Vegas and more recently Spanish Springs Soccer Club. The club currently has
67 teams here in Northern Nevada making us the largest soccer club in NorCal Region 9.
