Philadelphia Union today announced the launch of Philadelphia Union Soccer Schools, a high quality youth summer camp program throughout July and August at four area locations. Boys and girls ages 6-14 will experience a top level professional environment just like a Major League Soccer player as they participate in skills development, contests, station work, scrimmages and game action all while wearing an official adidas Union Soccer School uniform. Campers can go to as many of the five one-week sessions as they choose, running July 18-August 19, as no two weeks will be the same.
Philadelphia Union Soccer Schools feature a professional coaching staff, which includes top college and high school coaches, collegiate athletes and special guest appearances from Philadelphia Union players and coaches. Campers will benefit from extensive conditioning and stretching, professional coaching and skill development, all while learning how to “Win Everything, Everyday!”
All-Access privileges include an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Philadelphia Union’s home stadium PPL Park; weekly skills competitions where winners are invited to compete in the Philadelphia Union’s World Skills Clinic Competition on August 18th at YSC Sports in Wayne, Pa. and a Player Reunion Night, where campers will be invited to participate in an on-field parade during halftime of a 2011 Union home game. Team photos of all campers will also be featured on a “Wall of Fame” at PPL Park.
