BUSA-South Development Program
The BUSA-South Development Program is an extension of Birmingham United Soccer Association that looks to provide the BUSA experience to players and families from the Chelsea, Greystone and Inverness areas while also acting as a feeder program for Birmingham United’s elite level programs such as BUSA’s Academy Program (Boys) and BUSA’s ECNL Program (Girls).
Sunday Soccer: Under 4 – Under 5
The BUSA-South Sunday Soccer Program is designed to provide children an introduction to the game of soccer as well as an opportunity to explore their motor skills and interact with other children their age. Volunteer coaches will introduce their teams to the game of soccer while encouraging a fun atmosphere in which the overall objective is enjoyment with a little soccer mixed in!
Recreational: Under 6 – Under 18
The BUSA-South Recreational Program is dedicated to offering players from Under-6 to Under-18 the chance to play the game of soccer within their local communities. The BUSA-South Recreational Program provides a fun atmosphere for players young and old to develop their soccer skills and technical abilities.
Jr. Academy: Under 7 – Under 11
The BUSA-South Jr. Academy Program serves as the developmental link between the BUSA-South Recreational Program and the BUSA-South Competitive Program. It is open to all players between the ages of 7 and 10. The Jr. Academy’s primary focus is on a player’s individual technical development. The Jr. Academy staff will encourage players to express themselves by using their individual skills and technical abilities to problem-solve and create opportunities for themselves and their teammates.
South Training Program
South Training for U-9 through U-12 Players:
This is for any 2009, 2010, 2011, and even the occasional 2008 that wants extra sessions, missed a north session, and or lives in the south area and cannot get to north training. This is a great program and Will and Lee are excellent trainers and coaches.
