Kent Knows Sports: 4 Teams Call Kent Home

Kent has maintained this tradition of being a sports-loving town.

February 4th, 2016

In 2003, Kent, Washington was named Sportstown USA by Sports Illustrated. Though that was 13 years ago, Kent has maintained this tradition of being a sports-loving town, including offering more than 500 sports programs for every age, interest and ability in its schools and throughout the community. Thatís one of the many reasons these four teams call Kent home

Seattle Thunderbirds: The Seattle Thunderbirds is a youth hockey team that plays as part of the Western Hockey League. They practice at the Kent Valley Ice Centre, play at ShoWare Center, attend Kent-Meridian High School or area colleges, and live with Kent billet families during the hockey season. The team also participates in a local mentorship program through the Kent School District.

Seattle Ravens: As part of the Northern Pacific Hockey league, the Seattle Ravens are a tier 3 junior hockey team. They play home games at the Kent Valley Ice Centre and away games throughout the area in Bellingham, Tri-Cities and other Northwest cities.

Tacoma Stars: New to Kent is the Tacoma Stars indoor soccer team. Playing home games at ShoWare Center, the team travels across the country for away games in California, Missouri, Nevada and other locales. While many of the players are locally-based, some hail from as far away as Maryland. We are pleased the Tacoma Stars call Kent home.

Seattle Mist: The Seattle Mist is part of the lingerie football league. Though they have an abbreviated scheduled, they play their home games at Kentís ShoWare Center, delighting area football fans who can enjoy their favorite sport in the NFLís off season.
