Travis Forney Memorial Scholarship

Travis Forney was an integral Sounders FC camp staff member where he served as a camp site director and a dedicated Sounders FC fan. He had a bright personality, was an engaging individual, and displayed a fantastic rapport with young children.  His passion for the game of soccer and for coaching was infectious. In February of 2015 we lost Travis Forney, but his spirit is still with us every day at camps.  To continue Travis’ legacy of providing positive experiences for youth soccer players, we have dedicated several Sounders FC camp scholarships each year to provide a full week of camp in his memory.


Christian A. Vera-Cadena Memorial Scholarship

Christian Vera-Cadena began what was to be his life-long passion for soccer when he was three years old. He furthered this passion and developed his skills by attending summer soccer camps at the age of five, up until he aged out. He was an avid Sounders FC fanatic and a faithful, energetic season ticket member. He had a loving, kind personality and a gentle spirit. He sought to inspire love of the game. While coaching kids’ soccer, he endeavored to be uplifting, funny and compassionate. He dreamed of donating soccer balls to underprivileged kids all around the world.  This Scholarship Fund was established by family and friends to honor Christian’s legacy of Family – Friends – Fútbol. This scholarship fund, in partnership with Sounders FC’s charitable arm, RAVE Foundation, provides several Sounders FC Camp scholarships so children in need an enjoy a full week of camp in his memory.
