Sporting KC Youth Director Interview

Sporting KC Juniors director of coaching Jon Parry, who is responsible for overseeing the entire Juniors curriculum and coaching of the U-16 Sporting Juniors team, was kind enough to sit down with Talkin’ Touches on Tuesday afternoon before each of the teams’ three training sessions a week, all held in the early to late-evening at the senior club’s Swope Park training facility.

Among other things, Parry revealed that Sporting will attempt to help TSC Hurricane get into the US Soccer Development Academy, that they are interested in – and have held preliminary talks with – similar clubs around the region about a similar partnership, and some basic facts about Major League Soccer’s Juniors program, such as you must live with your parents to be able to count as a Homegrown Player.
