Development Academy

What is the Bainbridge Island FC Development Academy?

Bainbridge Island FC Development Academy is a unique program competing in a competitive (select) level league and tournament format. Rather than hold tryouts, where 8-9-year old are told if they are good enough or not to participate in a competitive (select) level environment, we host open registration for all 8-9-year old who would like to be part of the program.

Our philosophy is a simple one: we want to develop players who have fostered a love for the game!


2020 Summer/Fall Season

2020 Summer/Fall Development Academy

Bainbridge Island FC and it's coaching staff are committed to the development of its players through best practices policies and documents from the US Soccer Federation (USSF), US Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) and the United Soccer Coaches (USC).  Additionally, Bainbridge Island FC is committed to the development of our coaching staff, through United Soccer Coaches educational courses, regular internal staff training, and online training classes.  Our Development Academy will focus on individual player and team development through guide and discovery.  Soccer is a player-centric game, coaches will create environments to allow the player to make decisions and problem solving.  Players will experience success and failure and will grow from these.
