PSC Director, Tom Taylor’s commented;

“Partnering with the SoCal Reds was a simple choice for us. They are an extremely well run organization, with professional standards which allows us the opportunity to work with talented youth players from within their organization. The UPSL offers high school aged and graduating players the chance to compete in a top level open aged environment that see’s players with a wide range of backgrounds from division 1 college players to top aspiring youth players to former professionals. We want to offer the local youth players a chance to play at the highest levels and the opportunity to receive professional exposure on a regular basis through PSC. We are a proven pathway for talented players in this country that are looking to play at the professional level as we have the capability to place players at all different levels in a range of countries around the world. I will be coaching  the Boys U19 Elite Academy team and UPSL team for the 24/25 season and I am excited to start working with the organization and providing a pathway for players at the club.”
