Deadline for the Kitsap Soccer Club’s name the team contest for its new pro team is Oct. 25. As mentioned before, the name Kitsap Kayaks, suggested by David Falk of GOALkitsap.com, is one I like. It’s different, and it fits the area. I also like Kitsap Fleet. Kitsap Destroyers, Kitsap Carriers, Kitsap Cruisers are names that work. And there’s always the Kitsap Yardbirds, Kitsap GreenJackets, Kitsap Sockeyes, Kitsap Coho, Kitsap Clams, Kitsap Chiefs. OK, enough. Go to http://www.kitsapsoccerclub.com/ to enter your name. The new team will play in the USL Premier Development League’s Northwest Division. Teams in the 2008 league included the BYU Cougars, Tacoma Tide, Abbotsford Mariners, Odgen Outlaws, Spokane Spiders, Yakima Reds, Cascade Surge and Vancouver Whitecaps Residency. Kitsap will join Vancouver as the only pro teams in the league.
