Union Juniors Satellite

Union Launches Union Junior Satellite Locations:
The Philadelphia Union is excited to announce a new opportunity for aspiring players in the Delaware, South Jersey and Lancaster area soccer communities. Starting this spring, Philadelphia Union will be inviting selected male youth soccer players born in 2005 or 2006 to participate Union Juniors at partner club locations located within their home communities.

Location Partners:
Thanks to the efforts of local partner clubs / programs the Union has been able to secure high quality training locations for the Union Junior sessions. While the sessions are “club neutral” and available for players from any youth club the Union would like to thank our local partners for making their locations available for this unique free of cost program.

Lancaster:
Hosted by US Soccer Development Academy League member PA Classics, and USYSO club Penn Legacy.

Delaware:
Hosted by University of Delaware, and overseen by Ian Hennessey, Delaware’s Men’s Soccer Head Coach and US Soccer Scout.

South Jersey:
Hosted by NJ Real Soccer Club at the Medford Holly Rd. Location.

About Union Juniors:
Union Juniors is Philadelphia Union’s official identification and player development program.

Union Juniors is a free of cost development program, for selected youth players in the region who show exceptional talent and promise.

Union Juniors is the first step of the Philadelphia Union’s Youth Developmental Program, which provides elite training and competition opportunities for players aged 8-18.

Union Juniors program is focused on individual development of soccer skills in a game related, fun, yet competitive, learning environments where players are encouraged to embrace a personal commitment to excellence with no fear of making mistakes.

Union Juniors is a supplemental development program. The “club and country” format enables selected Union Junior youth players to remain registered with (and play games for) their local club team. Just like when national team players are “called up” to represent their national teams while still playing for a professional club team, Union Juniors are “called up” into Union Junior sessions for free supplemental training and/or competition opportunities while remaining on their local club teams.

Union Juniors is an invite only program. Player recommendations must be sent via email to UnionAcademy@philadelphiaunion.com directly from the player’s club coach and/or Director of Coaching.
