Beachesside Soccer Club is one of the newest clubs in Bellevue, Washington, and its opening in 2016 has become a major success story in the area.
Its current home is a luxury beachfront mansion on the grounds of Bellevue High School, and it currently has more than 1,200 members.
The club has been a beacon of support for Bellevue soccer, and for more than two decades, its president, Steve Pomeroy, has worked tirelessly to improve the soccer experience in the city.
“It’s a pretty amazing thing to be able to be at a place like Bellevue that’s a little bit outside the bubble, and to have an opportunity to get a home with a club like Bellevuesside Soccer, that’s been a dream of mine for a long time,” he said.
“The best part about it is it was a great challenge to be here.
It was a long, long process.
But I really believe it was worth it.”
For his part, Pomeroys wife, Susan, said she was thrilled with the experience of joining the Bellevues side of the house.
“I think it’s going to be a fantastic fit for us,” she said.
“We’re so grateful for the opportunity.”
Pomeroys family first moved to Bellevue from Kansas in 1995, and he said that Bellevueside soccer was “a little bit of a throwback to when I was growing up.”
Bellevues was home to the U.S. Naval Academy, where he attended high school, and Pomeroya says he’s had the opportunity to learn a lot from the Naval Academy and its players.
He believes that the Bellevue team is going to make a great foundation for his club, and added that he’s “ready to work hard.”
Pommeroy said that he wanted to get involved with the Bellevuresside Soccer club because “it’s a fun club to be around.
It’s not as big as some of the bigger clubs, and they’re still young, so they’re growing.
But you know, it’s just a lot of fun.”
After his initial meeting with the club, Pommeroya said he felt the pressure to make the club better.
“The thing that makes me feel the most comfortable is that I’m a former Navy SEAL,” he added.
“So if they’re willing to help me out, I feel comfortable helping them.”
The Bellevues club is one step closer to making a name for itself, and even though it is still in the early stages, Pomprey is eager to take his club to a larger arena.
“You can’t really do this without support, and I think they’re doing a great job with their support,” he explained.
“I’m going to keep doing what I do, and just keep on getting better,” Pomeray added.
