The Union Futures program is free of cost for selected boys U7-U9 and provides supplemental training and competition opportunities for young players of promise. Our "club and country" format enables selected Union Futures to remain registered with (and play games for) their local youth club teams. Union Futures are "called up" into free supplemental training sessions to help develop and nurture 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.
SELECTION PROCESS OVERVIEW:
Philadelphia Union is invite only for players from Philadelphia Union's home territory. Philadelphia Union and YC have developed a regional scouting network to identify talent from within Philadelphia Union's home territory. Youth club coaches, directors of coaching and/or club presidents may also contact Philadelphia Union Academy business operations director Tim Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org should they believe they have a player who fits the profile of a Union Futures player.
