That's a duo you'll be seeing a lot more of during the 2012-13 season. Sporting Kansas City announced on Monday that St. Louis soccer icon Tommy Howe has been added to the Juniors coaching staff for the upcoming campaign. He'll assist Juniors Director of Coaching Jon Parry with both the under-16 and under-18 academy teams and will serve as the head coach for the under-12 pre-academy team.

The first step toward the 2012-13 season took place last night with the first of three days of tryouts for the U16 and U18 teams. Lots of talent took the field at the Sporting Club Training Center in Swope Park. Good luck to all!
