Local Soccer Clubs Unite for the Growth of Soccer
Baton Rouge Soccer Club partners with Zachary Area Soccer Association
A new partnership between the Baton Rouge Soccer Club (BRSC) and Zachary Area Soccer Association (ZASA) will combine the resources of both clubs for the continued growth of soccer.
Starting in the fall of 2013, all ZASA players from ages nine and above will register with BRSC. The younger age group players will continue to register with ZASA for another year. This process will give older ZASA players the opportunity to choose a variety of program options provided by BRSC including Recreational, Academy, and Competitive levels of play.
“The primary mission of Baton Rouge Soccer is to provide a quality soccer experience to all members by offering players the option to play at the level most appropriate for their skill and commitment levels,” said Gary Buete, BRSC Executive Director. “We are super excited to be able to provide the same opportunities to those who live in the Zachary community!”
Also in the first year of the partnership, the two organizations will combine each other’s resources to continue the growth of soccer in the Zachary area. Baton Rouge Soccer will help provide coaching education, infrastructure, player development, additional program options and marketing support to ZASA.
“ZASA has done a tremendous job growing and promoting soccer in their community, and with the addition of our professional staff and experience, we know we can help further develop and enhance the programming offered by their organization,” said Buete.
By the fall of 2014, all ZASA players will register with BRSC. These younger teams will still play their matches at the Flanacher Road Complex, and will be the start of Baton Rouge Soccer Club – Zachary Campus.
“ZASA is very excited about our partnership with BRSC, said Brian Dubee,” ZASA Vice-President of Operations. “Over the past 11 years we have seen the game of soccer grow in our community and want to be able to take it to the next level. This partnership will allow our soccer community to be able to get to that next level and beyond. We know it is a win-win for both clubs and communities.”
