Information about BVB IA Washington

BVB Washington - Renton Director of Coaching Sheldon Daniel and BVB Washington - Renton Technical Director Darrel Marcelle will represented  our Academy at the mother club in Germany this week.

They attended training designed to help BVB International Academies better understand how to train player to play the BVB way. Our affiliation with BVB allows many opportunities for both coaches and players to benefit from BVB's world class player development system. Here are a few pictures from their incredible trip!
