Philadelphia Union Youth is always on the lookout for our country’s best and brightest soccer players. Philadelphia Union boasts one of the best setups for development within all of MLS, and our scouting network is constantly searching for boys we believe deserve a chance and fit our system. Players from all over the country and of every shape and size have come in and impacted our program. We are constantly searching for players with talent, internal drive, passion for the game, and an incredible work ethic that strives to reach our First Team. Players that attack the game and readily accept challenges have been incredibly successful within our setup. The Academy works on individual progression within a team and club foundation, and boys that are able to balance achieving their own goals while also helping the group are a key trait the Union seeks.
Players interested in being a part of our Academy program (U12-U18) should have their club’s Director of Coaching contact us at UnionAcademy@philadelphiaunion.com. Tryouts are not offered for our Academy programs.
Players interested in being a part of our Pre-Academy (U8-U11) should look for tryout announcements in late winter annually (U8-U9), or have their club’s Director of Coaching or have their head coach contact firstname.lastname@example.org (U10-U11).
