Developed and run by BSC coaches, this program is fully integrated with the other soccer programs that Burlingame offers.

  2. Professional Coaching – At such an important developmental age, players will be taught the right skills the right way. The skills that the players will learn in the Rec+ Program will last a lifetime.
  3. The Burlingame Soccer Club Staff – The coaches working with the Rec+ Program are the same coaches that work with some of the highest level teams in the area. Senior Club coaches were involved in the design of the program and will be involved in its execution.
