Parker Bulls Soccer Club
The Parker Bulls Soccer Club (PBSC) was formed in 2011 to provide a player development program for youth soccer players in the Waimea community. The club is an extension of Parker School but is open to all players, regardless of their school affiliation. The club is looking for motivated players who aspire to improve both their individual skills and knowledge of the game as they progress through our program, which incorporates elements of the US Soccer Federation’s Youth Development Curriculum and a number of professional youth development programs.
PBSC competes in the Big Island Chapter of the Hawai’i Youth Soccer Association (BI-HYSA). BI-HYSA offers seasons in the fall (Sept-Nov), and spring (Jan-May) each year. We currently offer teams in U8, U10, U12 and U14 age divisions.
