What PSC are doing here in Orebro, Sweden is great. It’s a chance for American players to be seen by great coaches and scouts. As a coach its always fun to come out and see new players, even more to see players from a new country and different culture”
Axel Kjell, Orebro SK Coach (Swedish Allsvenskan)
I have had a great relationship with Tom Taylor PSC for 5 years now. At combines I get to work with players directly and learn their character which is important. I also trust PSC’s judgement of players even if I have not seen the play directly as they have a great reputation in the professional game
Christian Samuelsson, BK Boden Sporting Director (Sweden)
I’ve been working with PSC since they began in 2010 and these events are great for players and for coaches. I get to see a large number of players all at one time playing in a high level, professional environment that PSC create for the players.
Dave Irving, USL Hall of Famer, Tulsa Roughnecks (USL Pro)
“PSC helped me showcase my skills for five weeks in Europe, and earning a trial with a club in the Championship is something I never thought was possible for me. I feel ready, especially after training hard every day with PSC’s professional coaches for the last five weeks.
Stevie Manios (CSU Northridge) trialed with Brentford FC (England)

Tori Ornela (CSU Bakersfield) signed with Haukar FC (Women’s Icelandic Premier League)

It’s an amazing opportunity and I am very thankful to PSC, Tom and Simon (PSC Directors) for making it happen.”
