Junior Program

Berwick Churches Soccer Club is proud of its inclusive Juniors program that is aimed at promoting the enjoyment of playing soccer, as well as the development of each players skills.

In Season 2021, BCSC had over 450 young people playing across 32 teams in the VCFA Junior competition. We field teams in all age groups from Under 8s through to Under 17s, this includes female-only teams at under-12s and under16s.
As well as this, BCSC has a strong focus on growing and developing our youngest participants through our ‘KickStart’ program, which aims to promote fun and development for children aged 3-6 years.

Junior teams usually train once a week at a set time and day, from Monday - Thursday. There are no training sessions for KickStart, their sessions are every Saturday morning.

All junior games are played on Saturday mornings with home games at Grices Road Recreational Reserve, and away games at various locations around Melbourne and surround suburbs.

We are always looking for volunteers to help out with our Junior program, from coaches to team managers, to canteen volunteers. If you’re interested or if you require any more information on our Junior programs, please don’t hesitate to contact our Junior Coordinator, Rob Newell via e-mail
