Bridgewater Soccer Association (BSA) is excited to announce that it has entered into a strategic alliance with PDA (Players Development Academy), the leading youth soccer training organization in New Jersey, and one of the leading youth soccer organizations in the country. This initiative will provide the chance for BSA to recommend its top players for evaluation by PDA and will create opportunities for all BSA players to attend certain training sessions with PDA professional trainers. BSA believes that through this new affiliation with PDA, BSA will continue its mission to offer a truly outstanding soccer experience for local youth players in Bridgewater and Somerset County, one that is focused entirely on development and growth of the youth soccer player. BSA is thrilled about this opportunity to work with PDA to build the best development platform for its youth soccer programs.
Dan Adams (BSA Coaching Director) stated, "The BSA-PDA affiliation will allow our club the chance to identify talent and give players the opportunity to excel toward the very highest level of youth soccer both in the USDA Boys academy system and in the ECNL for the girls. The BSA board is committed to enriching and building the complete soccer experience for its players. This is a relationship that is being made for purely soccer reasons and to build a healthy soccer network in our local area."
Sam Nellins (PDA Director of Operations and Boys Academy Director) Stated "It is with great excitement that we partner with BSA and Dan Adams. Having a club right on our doorstep which exercises the same thoughts and ideas in and around player development will allow for a thriving partnership. We look forward to the day when the very best BSA boys and girls make valuable contributions to our ENCL girl's teams and our Boys Academy Program. We look forward to hosting BSA players and coaches to our PDA training sessions and sharing ideas. Being so local excites us and we look forward to working with BSA to enhance player development in Somerset County"
