The Ballistic United U14 Academy team travelled to “Indy” this past weekend for the end of season National Showcase.
BUSC has the youngest team in the United States and the most players in Northern California in Market Training and US National Team Program.
The team goal was to impose the BUSC Style in all 3 games and end with our best soccer of the year. “Playing attacking, possession soccer is the best way to develop and showcase our players “stated, U14 Academy Coach Andrew Ziemer. “The US National Team Scouts and opposing coaches were impressed with the way we played soccer and our players. At least 4 BUSC players were scouted as possible players to attend future National Team Camps.
In the 4 Day showcase, BUSC tied 2-2 vs Beachside FC of Connecticut, tied 1-1 vs Columbus Crew Wolves SC from Detroit and ended strong by beating North Carolina Fusion SC 5-0.
Ballistic United travelled with 17 players, Coaches Andrew Ziemer and Luciano Estrada and 4 chaperones. The entire Ballistic Academy team would like to thank all of the generous support in the community from private sponsors, players who attended the U14 Academy Spring and Summer Camp and everyone who bought raffle tickets for the 2 ipad raffles. This support gave ALL 17 players the chance to travel and play together.
