On Sunday, June 10, the Philadelphia Union Foundation and the Union Juniors partnered with Chester City United to host the second annual “Pass Back Day” at YSC Sports in Wayne, PA.
Adult volunteers and youth players from the Union Juniors Academy team helped prepare and run the event, which brought over 70 kids from the Chester area for a day of soccer activities.
Participants rotated through various stations manned by Union Juniors, including a penalty shoot-out, an obstacle course, and a small-sided game. Philadelphia Union players and coaches were on hand to provide coaching instruction and encouragement. Among those in attendance were interim team manager John Hackworth, goalkeeper Chase Harrison, defenders Ray Gaddis and Sheanon Williams, and midfielder Krystian Witkowski.
Signed Union T-shirts, hats and jerseys were raffled off to participants at the end of the day. The event concluded with an autograph and picture session with Union players.
The Philadelphia Union Foundation thanks all of Sunday’s volunteers for making the second annual Passback Day a success!
