What is Bryst Football Academy?


Bryst Football Academy provides an Academy Teams Program for competitive players. BFA has been modeled using the European Professional Club Youth Academy training environment and competition. We identify talented players at a young age, develop and nurture them in a professional environment, with professionally trained coaches, over a longer period of time (10 months). We must also provide competition based on these same principles of development versus only winning games.

We offer an option in the marketplace for parents and players who are dissatisfied with the current Club system, where the focus is on winning at all costs, even to the detriment of individual players. Our focus on each individual player and their development allows players to flourish to their full potential in a safe yet demanding environment.

This program has grown since its inception both within our Academy and within our SAAC League. We offer an option in the marketplace for parents and players who are dissatisfied with the current Club system, where the focus is on winning at all costs, even to the detriment of individual players. Our focus on each individual player and their development allows players to flourish to their full potential in a safe yet demanding environment.

Ontario Soccer has now accepted the Academies under their umbrella as full members and is now operating the Ontario Academy Soccer League. Bryst is a tier 1 academy in this system, which means we meet the highest technical and administrative standards set by Ontario Soccer.  With full membership rights we are able to enter Showcase tournaments and scout the Academy players for Regional and Provincial programs through the Talent on Location Day. Several Bryst Players have been identified through this program.
