BUSA ANNOUNCES WPSL TEAM!

Birmingham United is proud to announce that we are starting a WPSL (Women’s Premier Soccer League) team in Birmingham this summer that will play under the banner of Alabama F.C.!!  The team will mainly be comprised of players who have played for BUSA who are currently playing collegiate soccer.  This will also provide our current U-18 ECNL players and top U-17 ECNL players an avenue to be challenged and grow in the game before they head off to college in the near future!

BUSA is committed to providing a competitive soccer environment to our current and former members.  We are very excited to offer this opportunity for our players to compete at the national level in a professional environment while maintaining their amateur status.  BUSA WPSL Coach Joel Person commented, "This is an excellent way for our current and former players to continue to develop during the summer months!  It also provides a platform for our younger players to look up to and aspire to play for the team one day."

The team will be coached by Joel Person (BUSA ECNL Director and former Head Coach at Francis Marion University), Kevin Laux (BUSA Staff Coach and former Asst. Coach at the University of Mobile), and Andrew Brower (BUSA Director of Coaching).
