various levels of competition
National level play
For those players who want to play at the highest levels, our club provides the support, knowledge and history of having teams play at this level. We have made it to two National Finals, won two NJ US State Cups and we are committed to add to our club’s legacy.
If you have a multi-sport child who wants to play with his/her multi-sports friends on a team of like minded players and parents – we can offer a level of soccer that allows your child to continue at a competitive level while maintaining commitment to other sports. Parents and player need to be realistic in how much commitment they can offer each sport.
Just playing at a little higher level of sport
If you have a single sport child that you would like to play at a little higher level of sport beyond intown and have your child be allowed to develop as a player without the pressure of winning at all cost. We form teams with that in mind.
A happy, confident soccer player, an inclusive program
The development of a happy, confident soccer player is a long process. The goal of making happy, confident players progresses gradually from a simple to a more complex understanding and attainable skills in playing the game. The Bloomfield Soccer Club philosophy that we focus on the long-term development of the player while keeping in mind both the importance of competition and achievable performance as well as enhancing the player’s love for the game and the parent’s happy participation.
Competition at various levels
We try to place teams at levels of play that will allow the player to build confidence in themselves and his/her teammate. Many teams start at the development level and through the years they progress to levels that take them as high as they can go.
What parents have told us many times over the years is that they want their child to have fun and be excited about attending practices and games. If their child can achieve a higher level that’s great, but not at the cost of fun, accomplishment and confidence.
The path to fun and confidence in soccer is putting the right player on the right team.
