The Union Juniors program is free of cost for selected players (boys, U9-U13; girls, U10-U13) and provides supplemental training and competition opportunities for top players in Philadelphia Union's home territory. Our "club and country" format enables selected Union Junior youth players to remain registered with (and play games for) their local youth club teams. Union Juniors are "called up" into Union Junior session for free supplemental training and/or competition opportunities to help develop and nurture their growth as players. This "club-neutral" model enables Philadelphia Union and YSC to effectively partner with local youth clubs and share in the process of developing Philadelphia’s future.
