"The importance of the youngest ages, of having a quality, positive coach is integral in the development of not only a soccer play, but as a person," said Technical Director Abbas Faridnia. "Enjoying the game, while learning is vital at this age. The long term development of Spokane Sounders players starts at these youngest ages. The curriculum and coaches are the integral part of Spokane Sounders having success at the later stages in a player's development. The event calendar provides the best possible development at each age group, balancing travel with the appropriate age as well as the level of competition."

“We are also excited to begin the process of competing in the ECNL by selecting the top players in the region for this fantastic opportunity. We are ecstatic to be part of a league that will further the development of our players at the highest level available in our region and the opportunity to maximize college exposure for our players.”
