This program provides Burlington Youth Soccer players the opportunity to train and be coached by our High School Varsity teams, in an attempt to build a relationship based on support, positive reinforcement, and player development.

This program is free of cost and will take place at Marshall Simonds Middle School.  U8 and U10 players will participate from 12-2pm, and U12 and U14 players will be participating from 2-4pm.  You do not have to be affiliated with BYSA to participate in this event.  This fun and informative training session will include free t-shirts, competitions, and giveaways.
