Dear Bladium Youth Soccer Community,

At Bladium, we are working hard to improve the quality and staffing of our youth soccer instructional programs.  We are very excited about several program changes that will be implemented in Spring 2020. We strongly believe these changes will elevate the level of soccer instruction and class offerings at Bladium.

The biggest change will be consolidating our BISA program into our NEW Skills Institute Level III.  In order for a player to enter a Skills Level III class, they will need to have previously played in BISA or be recommended from a Skills Level II class.  Most, if not all, of the Skills Level III classes will take place on the outdoor fields and have a more advanced soccer curriculum.

Registration now open!


It’s our vision to support as many players as possible in achieving their individual soccer training and development goals. From Lil’ Kickers all the way through Skills Level III, we now offer a robust and comprehensive soccer training program for players of all levels.

Our hope is that all of the current BISA players sign up for Skills Level III classes as we have added a lot of new class offerings to the Spring schedule.  In addition to Skills Level III, we are starting the SISL (Skills Institute Soccer League) for U6, U8, U10, and U14. The SISL is a semi-competitive program where the kids can come and play games under the supervision of our coaches.

We look forward to meeting all of you and we’re excited to launch this program at Bladium!
