Established by our Union Juniors Director and UEFA A Licensed Coach Iain Munro, Union PDP emphasizes a fun, nurturing environment that emphasizes technical proficiencies and the joy of the game to raise your son or daughter’s skill level while instilling a lifelong passion for the sport.

Players will enjoy an eight week program designed to develop both the player and the athlete! Program cost is $275 for an eight week session. Includes official Union Youth training jersey.
