Chester, Pa. (March 4, 2011) – Philadelphia Union today announced the launch of Philadelphia Union Soccer Schools, the official soccer camps of the Union. The youth summer camp program will run throughout July and August at four area locations. Boys and girls ages 6-14 will experience a top level professional environment as they participate in skills development, contests, station work, scrimmages and game action. 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 benefits include an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of PPL Park, an official adidas Union Soccer School uniform, weekly skills competitions with winners invited to compete in Philadelphia Union’s World Skills Clinic Competition, an opportunity to participate in an on-field parade during halftime of a 2011 Union home game, and inclusion of every camper in a team photo on PPL Park’s Wall of Fame.
