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.
