Sherwood Youth Soccer Club



  • Michelle Swanson President

    I have lived in Sherwood for 13 years now, married with 3 girls.  All 3 of our girls have been involved in Sherwood Soccer at one time, through our Recreational / WDP program and Westside Timbers.  My husband has coached and I have been involved with team management / team mom duties.  I really wanted to get involved in a community program.  I feel like as a city we are so blessed at how this community supports their sports in general.  About 5 years ago Events Coordinator position was open and so I started there with a great event that we put on every year, our soccer jamboree.   I have learned so much sitting on this board and have met some great people.  I am looking forward to learning more being President and getting our club out there even more in this community.  We have a great soccer program and I am so proud to be a part of it.

  • Ashley Siebers Treasurer

    I am a native Oregonian and proud of it! My husband and I moved to Sherwood in 2008 and started a family here in 2012. My twins are 5 years old and finally able to enjoy soccer beginning with Indoor in 2017. I feel lucky to have expressed interest in joining the Board at just the time that the Treasurer position was available. While I work as a stay-at-home mom now, my career was always in the financial industry so this felt like a great fit. I enjoy being involved in our great community and am excited to get to know even more people through my work with Sherwood Soccer Club. 

  • Brandi Morton Westside Timbers Liaison

    I am a graduate of Oregon State University, GO BEAVS, and a mother oftwo  daughters, 10 and 12.  My husband, Chad and I have been residents of Sherwood since 2005, and almost from day one, have been involved in the community in some way, and especially enjoy supporting Sherwood kids! 

    Myself and my husband played soccer all through our youth, so we were excited to introduce our daughters to the sport. They both have since moved on to competitive soccer and it has been a joy to see them grow and develop through the SYSC program.


  • Karen Pratt Registrar

    I have 4 kids, all who have played soccer with Sherwood Soccer Club at one time or another in their life.  Over 10 years ago I became involved with the Club when my children were little as a way to participate in the community and in something that my kids enjoyed doing.  Our youngest still participates in the Spring Indoor Rec season and has a blast.  Through the club I have met so many wonderful people; coaches, board members, and players.  I truly enjoy being part of the Sherwood Soccer board.

  • Diana Pennington Director of Marketing

  • Laurie Holm Referee Coordinator

    I have lived in Sherwood for over three years with my two daughters.  My oldest daughter will be playing with the incoming 3rd grade teams and my youngest will be on the incoming Kinder teams for Fall '19.  I loved playing soccer as a kid back in California with AYSO and a travel team.  Now it's my girls turn to play and learn to love playing sports like I did.  Since I work remotely from home for a company based in San Francisco, I wanted to get involved in local organizations in areas in which I am passionate about.  I am looking forward to helping where I can and support this wonderful organization.  

  • Jimmy Godard Website Coordinator

    My love for soccer has started in 1982. Then, I witnessed Paolo Rossi (Italy) defeating West Germany 3-1. He displayed to me the beauty of soccer. In 1986, I watched the artist Diego Maradona (Argentina) scored the “Hand of God” goal. He defeated Germany 3-2.

    I’ve played soccer all my life. I assisted other coaches, and coached adult and kids. All my kids play soccer and I’ve coached all of them. It is so much fun.

    My Favorite Team of all times is the Inter Milan. Now, it is FC Bayern Munich and the Portland Timbers. Hoping they never play against each other. There is no need to test my loyalty. 

    You will find me online blogging, tweeting about major soccer Cups or the Timbers, if I am not in the Army section during a game. I enjoy watching, and coaching soccer. We have some great kids in Sherwood with so much potential. It is an honor to coach and watch them flourish. 

  • Adam Rogowicz Field Coordinator

  • Teresa Carleton Director of Apparel

  • Crystal Arn Volunteer Coordinator

    Crystal Arn and her husband Jason have three boys and have been a part of the Sherwood soccer community since 2011 when their oldest started playing soccer as a kindergartner. All three of her boys are passionate about soccer and still play for the league today. She has over 17 years of experience in the pediatric health field and is now an operations director for a software development company. In her spare time, she loves to cook, go camping, hiking, boating, or reading a book with an iced latte. As the Volunteer Coordinator, she focuses on building a community of parent volunteers to improve and grow the Sherwood Soccer program and events.

  • Eric Anderson Director of Coach Education

    My family and I moved to Oregon in 2013, fell in love with Sherwood and hope to never leave. Soccer has been my passion since I was a child and I played all growing up. I have 3 boys and have been coaching multiple soccer and basketball teams since my oldest was 4 and now help with the Sherwood wrestling program as well. I love being a part of this community through sports, church, and work. It is hard to express the joy that comes from coaching the youth in Sherwood. I have developed many great relationships with the parents and boys over the years and still get a “Hi Coach” from boys on my team years ago. I view the players as my own kids and strive to teach them respect, discipline, and the ability to push themselves beyond what they believe they can do. There is nothing greater than watching them learn and grow and to see the pride in their eyes when they recognize what they have accomplished. I am excited to work with this great group of volunteers to help our soccer program continue growing and help make it the place to play in our community.
