Hey, soccer fans! I’m Emily Tull, the new office coordinator at Broken Arrow Soccer Club. I’m so excited to be part of BASC and dive right into the world of youth soccer! A little bit about me: I’m a 2013 graduate of Rogers State University with a background in communications and graphic design. I live in Tulsa with my husband, Chris, and I enjoy going to concerts, binging Netflix and YouTube, and learning Japanese. (こんにちは!) If we haven’t already met, I look forward to meeting you soon!
Enough about me – we have some AWESOME new things going on at BASC! One of these things is the introduction of GENESIS FOOTBALL, a recreational program for U7 to U10 players led by our president, Jason Dobbins. The purpose of Genesis is to provide recreational players the opportunity to train and play with others with similar skills and abilities without the limitations of traditional recreational team formation rules.
Genesis is not a replacement for the BASC Closed Recreational League or the Recreational Select League; it is a supplemental, recreational program intended to enhance the player experience and provide a more well-rounded education.
Genesis is a little bit different than typical recreational soccer. Genesis doesn’t have formal teams, and there is no league to play in. Instead, players are trained in a pool or festival environment, so all players train together. Games consist of scrimmages at the end of each training session, friendly matches with other Genesis or Closed League teams, and other entities in the Tulsa area.
Genesis Football’s goal is greater than winning games. We want to train young players in a manner which facilitates their future success in soccer – at any level. Lessons about sportsmanship, respect for the game, respect for officials, honesty, perseverance, integrity, and a desire to compete are important areas Genesis will cover to help your child grow in the sport.
There is SO much going on with this new program, and we are thrilled to introduce it this season! You should join us at the Genesis Town Hall Meeting on August 15th at 6:00 PM to meet the director and learn more about how Genesis would be a great fit for your child. You can also follow along and join our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/290601188079963/ and register at http://www.bascok.com/programs/genesis-football. We hope your child will soon be playing with Broken Arrow Soccer Club AND Genesis Football!
