THE SLAMMERS DIFFERENCE Welcome to Rainier Valley Slammers! We are very proud of our outstanding local coaches and volunteers, but one thing that makes our club different than the rest is our association with Walid and Ziad Khoury, Founders and Directors of Coaching for Slammers FC of Newport Beach, California. Slammers FC is one of the most successful and prestigious youth soccer clubs in the United States, www.slammers.org. Walid and Ziad help train our players and our coaches on a continual basis, and we are incorporating their highly successful curriculum and style of play into all our teams. Walid and Ziad are there for us at the national level, helping our teams and players get the attention they deserve from tournament directors and college coaches. This partnership is helping us build a truly premier soccer program. Rainier Valley Slammers is a member of the Regional Club League (RCL) and plays against the other top Premier clubs in our state. We are a club on the rise! Most importantly, we put player development, and communication with parents first. All of our players are guaranteed significant playing time throughout the year. We put special emphasis on developing our own young players, and showcasing older players to college coaches. Winning is important, but training young people to be great soccer players and great students and citizens is our main mission!
