Premier Academy

FC Spokane provides additional Academy at no extra charge for our Premier Academy Players. By incorporating this additional training players with FC Spokane no longer need to seek additional training opportunities outside of the club. Premier Academy Players are given the opportunity to train with players throughout the club in a manner which creates a family atmosphere.

WHAT IS ACADEMY?
  • The FC Spokane Academy is a supplementary training program conducted by experienced and qualified FC Spokane coaching staff. It is not designed to replace a player's team practices or games but instead to complement them. FC Spokane Premier Academy players are players with heightened interest in the sport and participate in the FC Spokane Academy program to help improve their skills through proper instruction and regular supplemental training.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
  • FC Spokane Academy training is designed to allow players of similar age and ability to train in a competitive environment with players from various teams within the club. At FC Spokane we believe that all training fees should be built in to the club dues and should not cost extra for Premier Academy players. We do not believe our Premier Academy players should have to pay for additional training outside of our club setup, Therefore we encourage our premier Premier Academy players to attend all sessions.
