Youth Development


We have always sought to offer our members the best development opportunties possible.

In 2021 we launched our very own Academy Program.

Additional and seperate to regular training, BCSC members and friends will have the option to receive specialist training from our experienced coaches.

BCSC already provides an opportunity that is both affordable and nurturing for any child to begin and enjoy football.

BCSC Academy will now provide further opportunities to any child in the the City of Casey, but especially those that already play for BCSC. Children that play in a team will now be able to further their skills at a quicker pace and higher standard, due to the extra training on offer.

Young footballers who are looking to begin playing, but might feel daunted about joining a team can use the BCSC Academy as a stepping stone to competitive football.

The role of the academy is to support existing players and open the door to players that may want to join but lack the confidence.


Sessions are weekly on a Monday and a Wednesday for 90 minutes from 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Program Options include:
10 sessions (either on a Monday or a Wednesday )
20 sessions (both Monday and Wednesday evenings every week)

BCSC Academy sessions are at Grices Road Recreation Reserve, Berwick.

"I began playing football when I was 8 years old. It was my Dads decision, my Dad had brought my family and I to Australia from Northern Ireland and with that came the sport I was to play.

I have been coaching at BCSC for 11 years. I have also spent a lot of my own time outside the standard schedule developing training strategies that can cover the wide spectrum of players inthe game. I was a coach at the Aurora Soccer Academy for 5 years before running my own academy SEEFA for the last 12 months..."
