BSA Joins Wisconsin Developmental Academy
for 2013/2014 Season
Beginning in the fall of 2013, Brookfield Soccer Association Select teams will compete in the Wisconsin Developmental Academy (WDA). The WDA provides the optimum developmental environment for the top soccer players, coaches and clubs in the state by emphasizing development through quality training and competitive games.
The unique aspects of this program focus on Club Directors of Coaching, in collaboration with the WYSA State Coaching Directors, making decisions on a player and coach centric league. The directors will have the tools nd resources to make adjustments to immediately impact any aspect of competition so player development can be enhanced. An additional component is the increased ratio of player trainings to competitions for greater player skill development.
The league portion of the WDA allows game day roster flexibility to encourage the team coach to focus on player development over win or loss. Promotion and relegation are not part of this program. Clubs are admitted to the WDA as clubs, rather than individual teams.
“To have our teams competing week in and week out at the same location offers a variety of benefits” said BSA Director of Coaching Art Kramer. “Flexible rostering allows players greater developmental opportunities and having the entire BSA coaching staff at the same site enables coaches to work together teaching and evaluating our players.”
In addition, The WYSA will coordinate Player identification and College Showcase events for clubs participating in the WDA. This will maximize the experience for the players and coaches. Players and Teams will still be able to participate in some leagues and the Olympic Development Program.
Jim Launder, WYSA Director of Coaching says, “The concept that the WDA is founded on all relate to enhancing player development using proper training to game ratios and minimizing the club “fear” of relegation and will make quality player development the standard.”
Clubs competing in the WDA include:
Bavarian Soccer Club – Milwaukee, WI
Brookfield Soccer Association – Brookfield, WI

“We are pleased to have these clubs partner with us to bring this innovative program to Wisconsin. It is the next step to complement our Youth Academy Accreditation program for the U-8 to U-10 ages that started a few years ago. We have 17 members clubs accredited in this program that provides many of the same philosophies for players and coaches at younger ages.” says Peter Mariahazy, President of WYSA. “The Academy model of focus on player development over pure competition is used around the world, and Wisconsin is excited to discover ways to incorporate it here.”
