Idaho’s Premier Coaching Staff

The strength of BNSC has long been the depth and quality of the coaching staff. The BNSC Coaching Staff is comprised of both a Technical Training Staff and a Team Coaching Staff. We take great pride in a staff that is indisputably the top staff in the state of Idaho and one of the best in the Region. Our coaches are selected based upon each of the following areas: coaching experience, playing experience, proven success, education, commitment, personality relative to age group and character. While all members of the Technical Staff are required to have a current national coaching license, all members of our coaching staff as a whole either have coaching licenses or are in the process of obtaining a license.

Our depth is unparalleled, giving families the comfort that each and every year you will not be left wondering if you will receive a quality coach. We have a stable of both experienced and young coaches who we develop for the future, to ensure the quality of our staff for years to come. Young coaches are mentored and developed alongside experienced staff to continue our legacy of Idaho’s top coaching staff. Our coaches stay with teams for one or two year cycles before moving on to a new team. The quality and depth of our staff ensures that you will have a quality coach every year. Across the board, the vast majority of our coaches also work exclusively with one team. While it is not guaranteed, most of our teams also have two or more coaches, to ensure quality development for our players.
