Washington East is excited to announce that Noah Whitman and Tyler Smith have both signed with the University of Washington men’s soccer program! The UW is widely recognized as one the top 10 men’s soccer programs in the country. This incredible accomplishment will be the first time in 12 years that a Spokane boy has signed to play with the Huskies! The last signing was none other then Seely Soccer Academy player, Brett Hite. Congrats to Noah and Tyler from the entire WE family! Keep on the look out as the Club’s final two seniors are still making their decision on where to play college soccer. #WE #Seely
Washington East is a family-oriented academy style soccer club. We don’t boast to be the biggest club in Spokane, but rather narrow our focus on having quality on the soccer field. Proudly we make our home at the beautiful and well-manicured Spokane Polo fields. These spacious grounds offer the opportunity to have our teams train together thus reinforcing our soccer family. Our focus is developing our athletes with excellent ball skills and game awareness. We believe that our club’s strength is in our coaching and we are proud of this. Developing great players is our focus, not necessarily winning. Our developmental age groups will focus on player development, skills acquisition, and fun rather than winning. Winning games is not paramount rather growth and player growth is a product of successful training led by personalized coaches.
We are very proud of our coaches and coaching tree. Under the leadership and guidance of our Club head coach, Tim Seely, our club has assembled a team of highly dedicated and talented coaches. Our coaches are hired and are not volunteers. They are solely dedicated to their specific team and the development of each individual athlete. Our training style hinges on repetition of key drills with attention to the fine detail. Gradually over time this training translates to the magic we see on the field. Each coach is committed to their team and we make our promise that your coach will be present with your athletes teams.
We are proud of our style of training at Washington East and our training fees cover the costs of 10 months of training. When an athlete joins a WE team they have a dedicated coach who is compensated for their leadership. Our coaches are not volunteers and our coaches are experienced former soccer players. We believe our training will develop each individuals soccer skills and footwork that will show our training fees are well spent. In addition to our training fees each athlete will pay an annual club registration fee ($250) and need to buy a uniform kit that should last a 3 year cycle. Any additional fees will be based on the activities your team elects to compete in.
Washington East is committed to providing the highest level of youth soccer in Spokane. WE utilize the family oriented academy style to develop players to their highest potential. At Washington East we strive to cross train all players across all teams. Utilizing the same training space to encourage movement of players to their abilities and to help coordinate our WE “Style”. We strive to compete at the highest level in the state and in the nation. Our goal is to teach our players to think as a team, play with passion, intensity and sportsmanship.
