It is a pleasure to announce a partnership with PSV Union FC. PSV Union is focused on high-end player development, players seeking to play at college and in national and international venues. WIth this partnership, PSV Union augments our already impressive range of programs and extends our range into the very highest levels of training and play.
Through this partnership, Palo Alto AYSO's Elite and Select Programs will benefit from clinics, assessments, and other training support activities. Our Instructional Programs will benefit from the enthusiasm, skills and leadership provided by PSV's senior players.
Our players of the highest ambition and commitment to training, and school grades, will benefit by having this seamless pathway to college and international competitive venues.
This first-of-a-kind partnership is an exciting development in youth sports in Palo Alto, and for the first time we can offer our families and players a seamless choice of programs ranging from recreational, through competitive, to the highest level of competitive training and play.
Our plan is to begin experimenting this summer in our Elite Program, and to learn what works well for joint activity. We will then expand upon the activities in the fall, and through continuous experimentation and learning, will eventually learn how to cooperate with the most positive effect for our respective organization and families.
