— Sounders FC forward/midfielder Lamar Neagle recently ran a private camp with the River City Foxes, a youth girls soccer team from Spokane (above). One of the players, Hallie Vevair, had won a VIP skills clinic from an MLS player in a nationwide contest by Degree deodorant.

— A couple other Sounders, Nate Jaqua and Taylor Graham, stopped by Vashon Island High School earlier in the week to hang out with the Pirates’ boys soccer team.

— The Emerald City Supporters will be hosting an outdoor beer garden before the May 14 home match against Portland, the first Cascadia Cup match between two MLS teams. Obviously it’s a 21-and-over event and starts at 2 p.m. at the corner of Occidental Avenue and South Washington Street.

— The Seattle U. women’s team is hosting UW at 5 p.m. Friday. Before the game, at 4 p.m., the team will run a clinic for the Special Olympic athletes from the Seattle Public Schools Unified Sports soccer teams. During halftime the Redhawks’ men’s team will play a game against the Special Olympics athletes.

— The Tacoma Tide has signed Chase Tangney and Daniel Gray, two local products, for the upcoming season. Elliot Morton and Cam Vickers are also coming back to play in yellow.

— Kickoff for the Kitsap Pumas’ May 14 home match against Washington has been moved to 1 p.m. Recently the team has signed Kendell McFayden, Chris Andre, Zac Lubin and Sam Roca. In another release the team announced signings of Steve Mohn, Robby Christner, Elliott Fauske, Graham Davidson and Manny Hernandez. All the team’s 2011 matches will be webcast live on the website of new broadcast partner KMAS.

The Sounders Women opened the season last week with a 3-0 exhibition win against Western Washington University at Starfire. The team plays Seattle Pacific tonight at Interbay Stadium.

— The Kent Sister City Association, the city of Kent and the Kent Youth Soccer Association are working together to send a group of boys to Norway this summer to participate in a cultural exchange program and play soccer. They need help raising funds. Contact tleistiko@comcast.net if you might be interested.
