Students recruited to play with the Union Academy soccer program may qualify to live in a residency home managed and maintained by the Union Academy. All students in residency are enrolled in YSC Academy. The school coordinates carefully with the Union Academy and with the residency parents to ensure the quality of students’ experiences in residency.  

Our residency program is comprised of our residency house, as well as host families and home stay program. Roughly 15 student-athletes are a part of our program annually. Each house is staffed by a couple who is responsible for preparing all student meals, providing transportation, and maintaining the home. Questions about residency should be directed to Jon Scheer, Director of Talent Identification, at jscheer@philadelphiaunion.com.

Students have chores and responsibilities in the home, determined and managed by the residency parents.
