The Sporting Club Network (SCN), presented by Price Chopper, is an affiliation program between athletic organizations and Sporting Club, the parent company of Sporting Kansas City & Swope Park Rangers. Through this new, innovative and free partnership, clubs receive exclusive access to events, opportunities and educational experiences just for being a member.
Throughout the year, we offer free events exclusively to SCN members such as clinics, chalk talks, open trainings, coaching educations, contests, and special events.
Here is the 2019 Spring SCN Schedule (February-July):
These 90-minute clinics feature on-field instruction from Sporting KC staff, a Q&A session with a SKC player and the opportunity to walk away with autographs. Clinics are held at various locations throughout the year.
