Eastern Pennsylvania Unity Cup Youth Clinic

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association and the Philadelphia Unity Cup are banding together to help teach the beautiful game to the next generation. On Wednesday, Oct. 13, the two groups will be hosting a youth clinic from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at James Ramp Memorial Recreation Center in Philadelphia.  


Since the Unity Cup kicked off at Smith Playground in South Philadelphia on Aug. 27, the tournament has featured action from 52 teams representing different countries. Although there are fans of all ages on the sideline, there are no youth players competing in the tournament. 


Led by Technical Director Mike Barr and Grassroots Soccer Manager JT Dorsey, the clinic is free for children ages 8-12 who have parents or guardians involved with the Unity Cup.  


“This clinic gives us an amazing opportunity to connect with the youth of the Unity Cup,” Dorsey said. “The adult players get to enjoy all the aspects of the tournament and the clinic is a way to help the youth be part of the tournament as well.”  


The tournament recently wrapped up its Quarterfinal Round on Oct. 2 and 3, with Brazil, Guinea, Sierra Leone and three-time defending champion Liberia advancing to the Semifinals, which will be played on Oct. 9.
