BECU members have one more thing to cheer about: BECU partners with the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) team, Seattle Reign FC.
The Seattle Reign is a young organization, arriving on the Seattle sports scene in 2013. It was an exciting time to launch a professional women's soccer team, and just two years later, the entire nation was swept up in the U.S. women's victory at the 2015 FIFA World Cup. The championship team that year featured the Reign FC's own Megan Rapinoe.
We paired Reign mentors with young BECU athletic mentees – click below to view three videos (and perhaps even sneak a peek at coaching tips from Megan Rapinoe herself).
Producing world-champion level athletes is what the team is all about, both on and off the field. The Seattle Reign FC operates the Reign Academy, a three-tier training program that fosters young female athletes to pursue excellence both on and off the soccer pitch. BECU, too, champions the organizations that can motivate young women to pursue athletic excellence, as well as learn valuable lessons in dedication, teamwork and perseverance. Such lessons are valuable not just in sports, but in one's education, career and yes – finances!

Chosen participants will receive sideline access before and during the match, participation in the Reign FC Legends ceremony and pre-game walkout, a special edition pink “ball girl” shirt, fast pass to the BECU FanZone and a ticket to the game.
Local girls' soccer teams are selected to participate in a coaching clinic with the Seattle Reign FC. This is an incredible opportunity to get playing tips from the players themselves. This is for girls aged 8 - 16 years old, and includes a game-day ticket, a training t-shirt, a 90-minute clinic led by Assistant Head Coach Milan Ivanovic, and an opportunity to meet the players.

BECU Ball Girl Experience details : The Ball Girl package includes a ticket for the Ball Girl. Additional tickets for family and friends may be purchased at the group rate ($20 for Upper, $15 for Lower, and $12 for Upper Grandstand). There is not a cap on the number of tickets that can be purchased using the group rate.
Ball Girls are typically booked as part of a youth team activity. Currently, reservations are made through our ticketing department and based on game availability. Ball Girls must be capable of fielding out-of-play balls with minimal direction and able to stay alert during the match as balls often leave the pitch at high velocity and can be dangerous for younger children. There are typically 8 – 12 ball girls per game.
