BRIDGE CITY SOCCER ACADEMY

Fiercely Committed

Bridge City Soccer Academy was founded in 2019, on the firm belief that every young player should be in control of her own pathway; not only as a soccer player, but also as a person.  Our main objective is to give control and decision-making back to the player, both on the field and in life.

Our Mission:
Develop, preserve, or in some cases restore, the joy and passion for the game of soccer for young women. We strive to create an environment that puts player and human development first. Our goal is to see players mature as leaders and soccer players regardless of where they are at in their journey. Through training and guidance, we will empower our young athletes by teaching and providing them with the necessary tools to make confident and positive decisions on or off the field.

Our Vision:
To create an academy whose goal is to train and empower young female athletes as players and people, to help them excel in soccer and life, while respecting each individual's unique pathway.

T
he Problem Statement:
There are many lifelong benefits from playing sports, especially for girls, but today's youth soccer culture is increasingly not a positive one for a majority of players. Coaches fight to stack teams with the top players, while neglecting the rest.

Soccer clubs are not set up to provide reliable and honest information about the best path for players, or how to support them in and out of the the game. Top players end up playing high pressure soccer at too young an age, traveling too much and burning out by high school. Players who don't shine at an early age are written off before physical maturity, and not given opportunities to develop to their highest potential. In all of this, the fun and joy of playing a game is lost, resulting in declining participation in organized soccer.   

In Portland few clubs field multiple competitive teams at U14 and above. At Bridge City Soccer Academy we want to break that cycle and create an environment where the development of the whole player comes first. A club built on transparency and honesty.

The Solution:
BCSA was formed on the firm belief that every young player should be in control of her own pathway; not only as a soccer player, but also as a person.  Our main objective is to give control and decision-making back to the player, both on the field and in life.

BCSA will offer soccer Academy Training across all levels of ability.  When appropriate for each individual player, we will work with the Thorns Developmental Academy, ECNL programs, and/or other local clubs to ensure that each girl has the opportunity to choose her own competitive pathway.

Concurrently with the Academy Training, BCSA will offer a year-long program geared toward leadership development and community impact.  Our aim is to instill self-confidence and self-belief in each girl, encouraging and developing each individual to become a strong leader within their respective environments.

Through our community impact program, we will provide a bridge for girls from underserved areas to find acceptance, growth, and opportunity within our academy community. Our goal is to inspire and motivate each player to make a positive impact in their communities.
