Throughout the year BSC will hold events, clinics, and seminars aimed to further our players and families experience with the club. All off-the-field functions are designed to not only to strengthen our players on the pitch but give them an opportunity to learn and grow as individuals. Oh, and occasionally have a little bit of fun.
Below are some of the events that the club hosts. Please make sure to subscribe to our newsletter and follow our calendar in LeagueApps to keep up-to-date on all of the latest happenings with the club.

February 29, 2020 at Lakewood Country Club
The Bethesda Soccer Club (BSC) was established in 1979 and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The club proudly serves more than 1100 boys and girls across 80 teams starting with our juniors program at age four through our high school seniors.
Through the years, the BSC scholarship fund has been specifically dedicated to providing financial support to local youth who would ordinarily not have the opportunity to play travel soccer. For many of our scholarship athletes, their BSC practices and games provide an important, scheduled after school-activity encouraging them to be involved and productive members of a community. Time spent with coaches and fellow players who value them affords the scholarship athlete a chance to excel as a leader and teammate, while also providing a physical fitness outlet. For some, their BSC experience becomes an important element of their profile on the path to college.

BSC Golf Tournament
The BSC Golf Tournament is our annual charity golf tournament aimed at raising money for our Travel Scholarship Fund. In 2019 the club raised over $25,000 for our scholarship fund.

College Soccer Days
During the fall season BSC players will have the opportunity to watch local college soccer matches and learn what it takes to make to the next level. In the past players not only had the opportunity to watch matches at Georgetown University, George Washington University, Mount St. Mary’s and the University of Maryland College Park but also serve as ball kids, player escorts, and play short-sided games at halftime.
Games will be announced as in late July/early August. To make sure your player does not miss out make sure that you are signed up for our Newsletter and checking out our calendar for updates.
Throughout the year BSC will have speakers come in to talk to our players about important topics like injury prevention, maintaining mental composure on and off of the pitch, the importance of financial stability, and diversity in the locker room. Speakers will be announced via our newsletter and on the club’s social media channels.
New Player Orientation
At the start of each season BSC will offer an orientation program to all new players and parents who are coming into the club. The orientation will cover the club’s values, points of contact, parent and player rules, and give additional information on the BSC experience including college information.
Information on our new player orientation will be announced on our Newsletter and on our Calendar. If you have any questions or were unable to attend please contact our marketing team at firstname.lastname@example.org
