Boise Timbers | Thorns Soccer Club (BTT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is a top family-oriented youth soccer club in Idaho, providing quality coaching that emphasizes education, character, and innovation. BTT is not your average youth sports organization. As the oldest and most successful soccer club in the state, it continues to make an impact on the sport not only at the state level, but regionally and nationally.
You donation will lessen the financial burden many of our families are facing. If you, your business/company or employer are in a unique position to be able to give during this time, your financial gift will help our players purchase uniform kits, pay for club travel to tournaments, and provide much needed scholarship help to pay for club fees.
Likewise, education of both our players and coaches is an important component of our mission. Our College Placement Program (CAP) encourages our athletes to take ownership of their futures by equipping them with the tools necessary to find a home at the college level. As a club, we are committed to not only player development, but truly being the catalyst in helping our players fulfill their dreams of playing collegiate soccer and accessing higher education. We also recognize the importance of the role that coaches play in helping our players achieve success at the college level. As a club, we invest in the education of our coaches by offering them the opportunity to seek educational licensing tailored to their experiences and needs of their players.
We believe that education is a journey, and our goal is to provide the necessary tools, guidance, and mentoring a coach requires to be successful. By providing educational opportunities for our coaches, we believe this will elevate our coaching to impact player development. Having better trained athletes creates more opportunities for our players to compete at higher competitive levels and have the opportunity to play soccer in college.
Coaching education is expensive and can easily cost $4K to $5K a course depending on the level of licensing, location, and related expenses (travel, lodging, food). Please support our players and our coaches by donating to ensure our players have the funds and the exceptional training to achieve their highest potential.
