Under the direction of FC Spokane, youth can learn the needed life skills of sportsmanship, mental toughness, self-discipline, commitment and proper work ethic through athletic competition. The group situation encountered in training sessions and matches will provide opportunities for learning how to work with diverse personalities and help achieve proficiency in conflict resolution.
A by-product of the FC Spokane program is the development of leaders who have pride, integrity, high self-esteem and exhibit "true" sportsmanship through this great game that provides physical fitness for a lifetime.
Through competition at the highest level of play available and participation in high visibility tournaments, the dedicated athlete who wishes a chance to compete at the collegiate level will be prepared to seek that goal. It is the direct aim of the program to place as many FC Spokane youth soccer players into high school and college soccer programs as possible.
As an end result of participating in the FC Spokane program, players will possess the necessary life skills to obtain future success whether it is in athletic competition or the professional work place.
