For the benefit of ALL players regardless of age, gender or ability.
(Tulsa, OK) MLS franchise Sporting KC and TSC Hurricane have announced that TSC Hurricane will become the official Oklahoma juniors affiliate for Sporting KC! This is a long-term commitment where Sporting KC will be highly engaged in every aspect of our program from assistance with our efforts to gain USSF Development Academy membership to camps and clinics for younger ages.
"MLS franchises across the league have continued to expand their reach in player development and we feel this new partnership will provide a unique platform for Oklahoma players to reach their goals. ALL of our players regardless of ability, age or gender will benefit from the engagement of Sporting KC into our programs. We’re going to leverage this relationship with Sporting KC to take our club to the next level,” said DOC Mark McIntosh.
Members of TSC Hurricane will receive a variety of benefits from this partnership. Some of these benefits include:
1) Innovative Coaching Opportunities - Our staff will work collaboratively with the coaching staff at SKC and will be educated and trained in the coaching philosophies and strategies endorsed by the US Soccer Federation, MLS and Sporting KC. These philosophies will then be integrated into every level of soccer offered at TSC Hurricane. Some members of our staff will also be engaged in Sporting Kansas City’s pre-season camp held in Florida this year.
2) Exclusive Clinics and Camps - Our players will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive camps and clinics hosted by the SKC coaching and training staff. In addition to player development, examples of these clinics may include such things as speed and agility training, nutrition and fitness and a college prep course.
3) Access and Interaction with SKC Players - Our members and coaching staff will have unique access to senior SKC training sessions, match analysis (chalk talk) and exclusive opportunities to interact with SKC players during the season. Players may also get unique opportunities to take a tour of LIVESTRONG Sporting Park stadium including the locker rooms while they are in KC for a tournament.
4) Membership - All TSC Hurricane members will receive a Sporting Club membership profile where they will have access to discounted SKC tickets, exclusive partner offers and presale opportunities for other events at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park.
"We are very excited to become the exclusive junior affiliate for Sporting KC in Oklahoma. This event is an important milestone in the implementation of our overall strategic plans and will lead to a new era of Oklahoma soccer for ALL levels and ages of players. We can’t wait to roll up our sleeves and begin working with such an impressive MLS franchise with a very engaged ownership group and staff. Over the course of the next several weeks, we will be communicating to our members what this means for our players, coaches and the club,” said Executive Director Jim Tindell.
