Thank you for your interest in attending an SKC Affiliate Observation Day. As part of this exclusive opportunity, Academy Affiliate coaches of Sporting Kansas City will have the chance to observe training sessions from the youth & professional teams that make up our club. Depending on the daily schedule, these on-field coaching education opportunities could include our Centers of Excellence (U9/U11), our SKC Academy (U12, U13, U14, U16 & U18 teams), the Swope Park Rangers (USL), and even the SKC Senior Team (MLS).
Throughout the 2017 MLS season, Academy Affiliates have the opportunity to schedule Observation Days specific to their club. However, in an effort to increase participation, Sporting KC will host three Observation Days, open to any and all affiliate coaches. Below are the tentative dates for these seasonal opportunities (subject to change):
- Spring SKC Affiliate Observation Day: Wednesday, April 19th
- Fall SKC Affiliate Observation Day: Wednesday, September 27th
- Please Note: individual Academy Affiliates can also schedule private Observation Days throughout the year, pending approval from SKC. Simply email Liam O'Connell (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set these plans.
To confirm your attendance at one of the scheduled SKC Affiliate Observation Days, please fill out the below form in its entirety. In the days & weeks leading up to this event, you will then receive additional information from Sporting KC's Youth Development Department via email.
Please note: final training schedules of each respective team will not be available until 1 week prior to the pre-determined observation date & are subject to change. For scheduling purposes, Sporting KC will typically train in the morning, Swope Park Rangers in the early afternoon, & the youth teams (Academy & COE) between 4pm & 8pm.
