Player Development Philosophy
BSA - Bees Soccer Academy - was founded by Coach Tony Niccoli in 2007. The Blossom Soccer Field was dedicated to him by the City of Brecksville and Mayor Hruby August 2015 and named “Tony Niccoli Field”.
Coach Tony touched many lives through his 30 years of teaching History in the Brecksville-Broadview Heights School System and on the field through soccer. He was one of the first coaches to sit in his chair and coach from the sidelines. His philosophy was, “If I did my job right, I won’t be yelling.” Coach Tony inspired everyone, yes, everyone to do their best. Coach Tony suddenly passed away in January 2016. BSA proudly continues his traditions.
The BSA directors and coaches have HUGE cleats to fill, and strive to continue in Coach Tony’s memory in educating your player on the field.
