Buffalos FC has a developed a training program which is designed to remove the soccer politics of the Player Placements process and to create a learning environment which puts the player in the their own driver seat. Players get to learn at their own pace, players work to earn a BFC PDI Badge by end of a seasonal year (Fall & Spring), then players are placed on a team equal to their PDI Badge Level: Select, Elite, Premier, or Showcase. Click on Player Development Pathways to learn more about PDI Badge Levels and what is involved with each level.
