2019-2020 Bethesda SC Scholarship Information

General Information

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.

BSC provides an environment that promotes disciplined young leaders and athletes with lifelong skills while offering world-class soccer opportunities. While the club’s most recognizable moments may be its national championships and other outstanding on-field performances, its most important contributions could very well be the opportunities it provides its scholarship athletes every season.
