PSV Union Football Club is a youth soccer club based in Palo Alto, with competitive teams ages 7-18, and an Academy for ages 4-6. Our philosophy is based on long term development using a unique teaching method designed by PSV Union FC Director of Coaching, Gary Ireland, acquired through his experiences as assistant coach to Wiel Coerver and Hubert Vogelsinger, as a coach at Liverpool FC Youth Academy and as a coach/trainer all over the world. PSV Union FC has a strong "club" model to promote this development, in which all teams, players & coaches collaborate and cooperate in order to provide a comprehensive and diverse learning experience for all players.
PSV Union FC offers a complete education within a safe and focused learning environment. Whether your child simply wants to learn more about the game, or aspires to play collegiately and professionally, we can provide the material and instruction to help them improve. We have developed many players who have found success at both youth & adult level: e.g Collegiate scholarships and championships; Youth and Adult National Teams; Pro and Semi-Pro adult teams.
