By PSC Soccer, 05/13/24, 10:30AM PDT


After learning about European clubs B71 Sandoy of Faroe Islands & Bodens BK from Sweden, last week we learned about USL Championship side Tampa Bay Rowdies. Today we stay in the US and look at USL League One Side Northern Colorado Hailstorm who will be scouting at our upcoming summer pro tryouts. Read on to find out why you should want to impress the Hailstorm Coaching Staff …

Country & League
USA, USL League One

How long have they been attending events?
Head Assistant Coach Colin Falvey has been attending PSC Tryouts for four years, Head Coach Eamon Zayed for the last 2 years also!

Have they offered opportunities to players from PSC events before?
Yes! As recently as this year. After our winter tryouts they invited three players into pre-season training and even played a showcase pre-season friendly against PSC's best XI from our winter tryouts. In the last week they have signed five PSC U21 players that will be announced shortly. The club offers pathways for both USL Academy and League 1.

Why play for the Hailstorm in USA?
On the field
Hailstorm had a very strong 2023 season finishing third in the league just 3 points behind top and boasting the leagues top scorer, Trevor Amman. In playoffs they progressed to the semi-final losing out to eventual champions a strong North Carolina outfit. Further success followed when Trevor Amman signed with Sacramento Republic of the USL Championship as a result of his performances in USL League One for the year. Showing that one good season at the League One Level can see you move up the divisions. Next stop MLS!

Off the field
The State of Colorado boasts some of the most beautiful scenery and natural views across the whole of USA. Nature lovers will feel right at home as well as anyone with a ski pass to their World famous slopes. Not a fan of the cold? Enjoy the hot springs instead to refresh yourself for your next game!

PSC Directors Comments on Northern Colorado Hailstorm
PSC Director Tom Taylors thoughts on playing with NorthernColorado Hailstorm:
"The Hailstorm have two very knowledgable coaches who can help any player new into the professional game develop into a starting player and move them onto higher leagues. They have proven this with Trevor Amman who signed his first pro contract with the Hailstorm and is now in the USL Championship with many saying he has a future in the MLS. It is the perfect stepping stone to bridge the gap for US players looking to break into the top division in this country"
