February 23, 2013 - Penn Fusion Soccer Academy and West Chester United Soccer Club share an important announcement with our membership. Please click on the plus sign for more information.
These are exciting times in the local soccer community. As you may know, in 2009 West Chester United Soccer Club and Spirit United Soccer Club formed a joint venture called Penn Fusion Soccer Academy to ensure that the players in both clubs we given every opportunity to play at the highest level in youth soccer. Penn Fusion has quickly grown to a premier club on the local,regional and national level. On the girl’s side, Penn Fusion is a member of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), which is focused on the development of female youth soccer players at the highest level in the country. On the boy’s side, Penn Fusion competes at the Region I Premier League, USYS National League, and Eastern Development Program (EDP) levels. Through player development, Penn Fusion provides opportunities to, and has successfully placed, players in all levels of collegiate soccer programs. Our relationship with the Philadelphia Union affords us a clear pathway for our players to progress to the Union Juniors and Union Academy programs.
West Chester United Soccer Club has recently been informed by Spirit United Soccer Club of their intention to withdraw from Penn Fusion and pursue a change in direction for the 2013-2014 soccer season, which will dissolve the current joint venture. To that end, West Chester United sends its best wishes to Spirit United Soccer Club and its members.
Moving forward, Penn Fusion will be managed by West Chester United, including its Board of Directors, Directors of Coaching, and staff. West Chester United’s plans are simple - We are 100% committed to the long term success of Penn Fusion and West Chester United. Our vision is to evolve the game of soccer to the highest level through a crystal clear commitment to player development.
Our coaching directors are continually working to improve our developmental approach to our players as well as sourcing the best coaches available, locally, nationally and internationally.
We will continue to provide periodic updates to the soccer landscape, however, please feel free to contact our coaching directors with any questions or thoughts you may have.
