Bermuda Athletic Association (“BAA”) are pleased to announce it is re-entering a team into the BFA’s First Division after reshaping our football program to meet the challenges of modern football creating a professional and inclusive youth program that provides players with the necessary skills and abilities to take the sport as far as they wish, to seek scholarships to further education, as well as play in the BFA leagues.
Andrew Bascome, who will serve as the head coach of our new First Division team is not only the most decorated coach in Bermuda, but is also the coach that led BAA to win the First Division title and promotion to the Premier League back in 2018.
Coach Bascome also took that team to a 6th place finish in its first Premier League season, and with his continued dedication to the development of the youth players, we are confident that BAA and its players will become successful.
BAA President Mike McGrath stated, “I am delighted that we have reached the stage in the development of our football program where we can re-enter the BFA senior leagues, and look forward to a future return to Premier League football with BAA competing against the best for silverware in all competitions. In Bascome, we know we have one of the top coaches and program managers in Bermuda and are excited by both the player development he oversees as well as his efforts to strive to continually work to improve our coaches to ensure a continual stream of both talented players and excellent coaches.”
If any players are interested in being a part of this exciting project they can contact Mike McGrath at President@baa.bm or Andrew Bascome at email@example.com.
We will be holding sessions on July 6th & 8th 7-8 pm on BAA’s Goose Gosling field for players to get together and understand the vision for the team and everyone is welcome to participate.
