BayShore Soccer, CCYSA join forces
CENTREVILLE — Rich Langford, president of BayShore Soccer Club, has announced a new partnership with Caroline County Youth Soccer Association.
“The boards of directors from both soccer organizations have agreed to a partnership that will benefit all the soccer players in our area,” Langford said in a statement. “Both clubs believe that both recreational and travel soccer programs are essential for our goal of developing ever y player to their highest potential. This partnership is an opportunity to expose players to the highest level of competitive play, enhanced coaching and skills development.”
The two organizations began talking about working together over a year ago, with more detailed discussions occurring this spring. Although, initially conceived as a way to combine top players into competitive travel teams, working together will also provide for additional opportunities for all players, the expansion of TOP Soccer for young athletes with disabilities, increased coaching education, referee certification, combined soccer camps, futsal training, future tournaments and community growth initiatives at all levels.
The partnership will allow the clubs to combine resources and provide families with the best soccer experiences for their children, organizers said.
“The coming together of two of the most successful clubs in the area is truly an exciting opportunity for our entire community at a time when soccer is growing locally and nationally. As always, our clubs are committed to long term development, both on and off the field, which will cultivate a lifelong passion for ‘The Beautiful Game,’” Langford said.
