KATHRYN LOESCHER

PRESIDENT

Simply put, soccer is a gift.  Whether aware of it or not, in daily life players utilize something they learn from the game every day.   The realizable potential for players to grow through the game is what sparked Kathryn’s passion to give back to the game through club committees, fundraising work, support of High School soccer in the school systems, and ultimately Board leadership over ten years ago. Stepping officially into the role of President of our club in August 2020, after serving as Interim President for one year, Kathryn helped the Board set the club on a course for change, that would ultimately result in the creation and launch of Northwest Elite FC in the fall of 2021.
