For players that are U11 and older (for the 2022-23 season, this will be the 2012 birth year and older), our competitive program is called Select.
Our core values of loyalty, honesty, and positivity, impact upon every training session and game that we coach.
BSC Select players are coached by our dedicated, nationally licensed team of coaches. We are very proud to have college coaches, high school coaches and Olympic Development Program (ODP) coaches on staff, to oversee the development of the players.
Players are coached to a club curriculum in accordance with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). This curriculum is designed and implemented to nurture the technical, tactical, physical and psychological aspects of a player within a team environment, while fostering a love for the game.
Our aim is to develop players' technical ability and nurture strong fundamentals, while being capable of making decisions independently for success in individual, group and team situations on the soccer field. We want BSC teams to play exciting soccer, and our coaches, players and parents to hold themselves to the highest standards.
Our focus is on the development of the player and person. Success, in terms of results, is a byproduct of effective development and a positive coaching environment.
