Thanks for a Great Summer!


On behalf of Union Soccer Schools, I would like to say, “THANK YOU” to each and every family that joined us this summer to make the camp season absolutely unforgettable.

Across our twelve sites spanning three states we were able to make a positive difference in the lives of over 1,000 campers. The summer was filled with many highlights, including our campers playing on the field at Talen Energy Stadium with MLS All-Stars Keegan Rosenberry and Andre Blake, watching Alejandra Bedoya’s first training session as a member of Philadelphia Union, playing alongside Union captain Brian Carroll, being personally trained by Jim Curtin, and meeting the entire starting XI – just to name a few.

We take great pride in what we do and thank you for choosing to spend your summer with Union Soccer Schools. It is a rewarding experience to see the smiles on the faces of our campers as they learn new skills, make friends, connect with the beautiful game and have dreams come true during their experience at Talen Energy Stadium.

I speak for our entire staff when I say it was a pleasure and an honor to be able to watch our campers grow day-by-day as soccer players and as individuals who embrace values like teamwork, sportsmanship, inclusion and honor. It’s our duty to keep each individual camper safe and maximize their time with us, and I have the utmost confidence that you as a camp parent saw us in action and the measures we take to ensure these are met.

The image of watching parents and their campers say goodbye to our staff on Friday after our Awards Ceremony is something I will never forget. To see our staff make such an impression in just a short period of time is incredibly gratifying for me.

As sad as we are to see this summer end, we now begin the countdown to 2017. We hope you join us next year and wish you the best during the school year and on the pitch, wherever you play!
