Bridgewater Soccer Academy Club Competitive Structure
BSA (5v5 Grassroots Soccer) U5 – U8 Program
BSA believes creating a love of the game starts from early childhood. The BSA $’s program promotes what we like to call "fun and focus soccer". We work heavily on foot-skills, small sided game play and decision making, all in a fun environment. Game related soccer is heavily utilized to keep the kids attention.
Touches on the ball are key and rarely will the players be without a ball at their feet during this program. Individual skill development is stressed and 1v1 and 2v2 scenarios are common. We generally play 4v4 and incorporate the “numbers system” and allow the players better positional awareness and, thus maximizing their touches on the ball and allowing them to make decisions from a very early stage.
