2019-2020 Team List

BUFFALOS FC SCOUTING REPORT

In 2018-2019 the BFC Board and DOC voted to change the model of our club, we are moving away from one team per age group and moving to a (2) teams per age group model. All BFC teams will be formed based on age and skill level.  This change will help to keep BFC more competitive by keeping players in their appropriate age group with similar skill sets on the same team.  Below is a team projection list, based on age group and gender. This may vary based on the number of players who sign with BFC in 2019-2020.
