Burnt Hills United Families,

It is my great pleasure to announce that we have hired Brian Bold as the Burnt Hills United Director of Coaching. Brian will be a great resource and an exciting addition to our team. Please see Coach Bold's quote and Bio below. We are looking forward to a great year with Brian at the coaching helm!

“It is with great excitement that I return to the club where I began my coaching career twenty plus years ago. I look forward to working side by side with our coaching staff, our Board, and our parents, but most importantly with the players. My goal is to retain players, educate coaches, and inform parents but my main focus will be on player development. If you coach with passion, your players will play with passion. Teach them to strive for excellence in all that they do. Excellence is not an act but a habit.”
