Bayside Hosts First-ever Soccer Tournament: Local Sports and Employment Opportunities


Nov 21, 2023

Bayside Soccer 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. 906 FC won the 12U group, Houghton FC Red won the 14U, and the 16U winners were from Bayside – Delta United Soccer Academy.

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 aged ten 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.
