The BFS Complex will create a vibrant business cluster through job and revenue creation that will drive local economic growth. The complex will attract visitors from around the world who will boost tourism, which in turn will help our neighboring small businesses. Prestigious global investors and corporations will have yet another compelling reason to visit our county and consider it as a site for vacation or expansion.
Having coaches and players from all over the country and even from around the world visit Atlantic City, will significantly enrich the fabric of the local community. The new complex will become an exciting visitor destination for participants and families to watch the sports action, as well as explore the nearby attractions and all that Atlantic City has to offer.
A Commitment to Atlantic City Youth and Recreation – “AC First Initiative”
One of the most important aspects of this project is the cultivation the youth of Atlantic City. By providing first-rate fields and training facilities, this project can, and will, help train and cultivate local talent. BFS has retained talented coaches and mentors, providing local and out-of-state youth with an unparalleled opportunity and advantage to excel in sports.
Part of BFS mission is to grow local talented youth players through training and mentoring in an attempt to further their education and development through sports. The BFS team is committed to developing local talent and assisting in placing those young players who have the capability to go to the next level in college programs or even the professional ranks.
In addition to providing first class instruction to the youth of Atlantic City, the staff of BFS will also establish a “Coaches Academy” for various sports where community members who want to be involved with coaching the youth of Atlantic City will have an opportunity to learn the best techniques and skills from some of the best coaches in the game at the highest level. If BFS teaches coaches “how to teach and how to coach”, we believe it can have a profound impact at the very youngest of levels that will carry on as the youth of Atlantic City develop into young responsible adults. BFS will run the “Coaches Academy” courses several times per year.
