Busselton Junior Soccer Club (Inc) was started in Busselton around 1981 by Lyla Douglas. Initially the Club was comprised of sixty or so boys from Busselton and surrounds playing in the Bunbury League. For the first year, this meant traveling to Bunbury each week. By the second year, however, the fixtures were home and away which greatly enhanced the appeal of the Busselton Club as travel time was cut by half.
Numbers steadily grew with teams coming from Vasse, Margaret River, Capel Dunsborough and Nannup. It wasn’t long before Busselton started it’s own competition to be played at Churchill Park. A decade ago Busselton invited other groups to help organize the competition and an association was formed with John Cannam being the inaugural LNJSA president.
Since this time, Busselton as a club has continued to be a dominant presence in local soccer. With their distinctive red and white strip Busselton players are hard to miss! Busselton’s home ground is Churchill Park, but we also play and train at Barnard.
Busselton Junior Soccer Club (Inc) maintains the following values: affordability, accessibility, respect amongst players and officials, optimal resources and support for players and officials in developing their skills and above all a love and enjoyment of the game.
In 2017, Busselton Junior Soccer Club (Inc) has a strong and dedicated committee comprised of; Paul Coshott (Pres & Coaches Liaison), Grant Bennetts (VP & Equipment), Anneline Enslin (Administrator), Ali Beazley (Fundraising), Karen Ardler (Registrar & Social Media), Ianto Ward and Ken Delbridge (committee members). Of course, the committee can only do so much and that is where our coaches, managers, referees and linesmen are invaluable! And with our sponsors, The Good Guys, we are now playing in our brand-new strip!
Busselton Junior Soccer Club believes Grass Roots Football should always be about individual development first, with team results second.
