SCN: A year in review

By Liam O'Connell

The past year has been an exciting one for more than just the high-paced soccer being played at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park.  The Sporting Club Network has been incredibly active, holding countless special experiences exclusive to our members in the Kansas City area and beyond.  From having our players sign autographs at the opening day of an affiliate’s season, to bringing local youth coaches to pre-game talks led by our coaching staff, to giving member’s access to international clubs’ practices, we here at the Sporting Club Network are doing our best to bring people together through the power of sport.

Fortunately, the word is spreading. Even highly popular outlets like ESPN, have begun taking notice, noting how in just over a year, membership within the Network has gone from zero to over 70,000.  And while it may be fun for us to garner national praise, nothing compares to the positive feedback we hear from the participants in our events and the members of our affiliate clubs. A recent testimonial from Kyle Bockover, President of the Southeast Kansas Soccer Academy in Pittsburgh, KS, is a perfect example of this –

“We have seen more growth within our club in the last few months than we have in the entire lifetime of our existence. I firmly believe this is a direct result of our affiliation with SCN… Thank you again for the opportunities you have provided to us.  Your generosity and support is making a huge difference for the game in Southeast Kansas!”
