Polishing the SSC Shadow Way!

2016-2017 Season Overview


Spokane Sounders Premier/RCL



SSC Shadow Select




The Spokane Sounders boasts the most experienced coaching staff inthe region.  The U13 - U19 program follows a seasonal curriculum that teaches possession-oriented soccer.  The club wide philosophy of building from the back, moving the ball through the midfield at speed with short combination and attacking in large numbers is a major feature of our curriculum.

Your son/daughter will be exposed to a variety of coaches through their Spokane Sounders career, all of whom follow club philosophy and teach their team to play the same way.  Children are exposed to a variety of teachers on their academic path; the same will be the case for our Spokane Sounders players.

Director of Coaching: Mike Pellicio

Volunteer coaches with various levels of coaching experience.  Some have certifications and high school or college playing experience. 

We offer unique benefits that other Select soccer programs do not:  a licensed Director of Select Coaching guides our volunteer coaches.  They receive active information that flows from the Premier side of the club to them, following similar philosophies and emphases.

League Play Spokane Sounders Premier/RCL teams compete in the Washington Youth Soccer Regional Club League - the highest level of state-wide competition available.  We hold the only Inland Empire membership in the Regional Club League - a testament to the commitment to Spokane Sounders focus on the four pillars of the Club -
development, competition, community and enjoyment!



Our Select teams compete in the Northwest League, hosted by Idaho Youth Soccer.

Our focus is on development of the player; therefore, the training environment is our highest priority at this level.  This environment is what separates our club from others in the Greater Spokane area.



Spokane Sounders Premier/RCL teams practice 10 months of the year between Dwight Merkel Sports Complex, Plantes Ferry Park, Andrew Rypien Field, South Complex and Cravens Sportsplex.
We have an “open” practice policy.  For players who desire more training, they are welcome to attend other RCL/Premier team practices.


SSC Shadow Select teams train in the area of town in which they live:

City of Spokane = SSC Shadow United Select
City of Spokane Valley = SSC Shadow Elite Select

Our Select teams train 6-8 months of the year.  Tournament participation by teams is optional.

This level of play provides continued opportunities for players to play the game with others that have similar levels of ability and desire.
