Twin City Announcement

SEATTLE, WASH. – Seattle Sounders FC today announced that North Carolina’s Twin City Youth Soccer Association has become the club’s first official out-of-state youth partner. Twin City joins Sounders FC partner club Seattle United, as the Rave Green extends its youth development infrastructure and Academy program across the United States.


“We are dedicated to becoming not just a target club for the best players in Seattle, but for the best players across the entire country,” said Sounders FC General Manager & President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey. “We are excited by the quality of play and coaching we see in Twin City and think the partnership will be useful in scouting and developing players across the United States.”


The partnership with Twin City includes North Carolina and Seattle-based Sounders FC events such as coaching education workshops and player ID camps – where young players can be recognized and brought into the club at an early age. Sounders FC 2 and Twin City are co-hosting an open tryout at BB&T Soccer Park in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on January 28 and 29. Additionally, the collaboration also allows Twin City players an opportunity to be placed on Sounders FC Academy teams. Further details pertaining to the partnership will be made available at a future date.
