Bayside Hosts First-Ever Soccer Tournament: Local Sports and Job Opportunities

Bayside Soccer recently hosted its inaugural soccer tournament on November 11th at the Hannahville Ice and Turf sports complex in Wells. The tournament featured three divisions of play for 12U, 14U, and 16U, with teams from Iron Mountain’s 906 FC, Houghton FC, and Bayside Soccer and its affiliate Delta United Soccer Academy participating.

The goal of the tournament was to create a fun and competitive event for players while raising funds for the high school team. Organizer Amy Blahnik said, “This is our first time hosting a tournament, and we look forward to having more in the spring and next fall.”

The games were played in a round-robin style, with three-on-three matches. The top two teams at the end of group play had a playoff for first place. The 12U group was won by 906 FC, Houghton FC Red took home the prize for the 14U division, and Bayside – Delta United Soccer Academy emerged victorious in the 16U group.

Bayside Soccer was established in 1996 to provide recreational soccer for the region, offering a great sports experience for families that focuses on player development, teamwork, and positive coaching. Their programs include summer recreation soccer and a High School Club program that competes regionally.

Delta United Soccer Academy, operating under the Bayside Soccer umbrella, has both fall and winter/spring seasons and almost 60 players 10 years old and older. They compete with other clubs in the UP and attend tournaments in Wisconsin, focusing on providing high-quality training for players interested in improving at soccer.
