Kitsap Soccer Club partners with Harrison Medical Center (press release)

Kitsap Soccer Club Inks Three-Year Sponsorship With Harrison Medical Center
Bremerton, Wash. – The Kitsap Soccer Club today finalized a three-year sponsorship agreement with Harrison Medical Center. Harrison now becomes the title sponsor for all of the Pumas’ burgeoning youth outreach programs.
The Harrison Medical Center/Pumas Pro Youth Academy and Youth Outreach Program is the first fully comprehensive, youth soccer training program of its kind in the region.
Harrison’s three-year commitment will foster the development of youth players from across Kitsap and surrounding counties. Support will include year-round training of young players by the Puma’s own professional coaches and players; team and player camps; and youth team sponsorships.

“This is an exceptional commitment on the part of Harrison Medical Center,” says Pumas’ executive director Ben Pecora. “To have one of the largest, most-comprehensive and recognizable firms in our region put its considerable muscle behind these critical programs, means the world not only to our club but to so many youth and families throughout our area. Harrison’s support of the team and especially our youth program ensures that our kids will receive the highest-level of training and access ever offered in the region. We are extremely grateful for this support as we build the club toward even higher highs.”
“Our partnership with the Kitsap Soccer Club is an outstanding opportunity to invest in local youth activities that promote fitness and a healthy lifestyle,” says Tom Kruse, Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer at Harrison Medical Center. “As a regional medical center, we look forward to highlighting all aspects of the full range of health services Harrison provides, including wellness, preventive health education, and the promotion of active lifestyle choices.”
Harrison Medical Center is a not-for-profit hospital and the region’s largest medical center, with five locations–Bremerton, Silverdale, Port Orchard, Belfair, and Poulsbo–serving the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas. Harrison provides the region with specialized treatment in cardiovascular services, oncology, orthopedics, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics. With 400 physicians representing 40 specialties, Harrison offers comprehensive medical and surgical services, 24/7 emergency care in Bremerton and Silverdale, as well as urgent care services 24/7 in Port Orchard and 12 hours a day in Belfair. Harrison is a Level III Trauma Center. To learn more, call the Referral & Information line at 866-844-WELL.
