"To see it is to believe it," explains a U10 Shadow parent. "My child's soccer skills, enjoyment of the game and understanding of the game have just eclipsed what we thought he would learn. Joining U10 has been just incredible for his soccer!" Learning the SSC Shadow Way - in South Spokane, North Spokane and Spokane Valley - brings vital training and focus on fun to our youngest players. Way to go U10's!
