The Grassroots Football Project

For anyone interested in the history of soccer in Australia and the players that have achieved what every young soccer player dreams about, representing their country,  The Grassroots Football Project website is an informative and interesting read.

The mission of the Grassroots Football Project is to provide a place for Australian football players that have represented Australia as a Matilda or Socceroo to give back to their Grassroots club by nominating and acknowledging the grassroots club that they started their soccer journey with.

Altona City Soccer Club is proud to have five players nominate Altona City Soccer Club as their grassroots club.

#242 – Mike Micevski

#265 – Peter Laumets

#292 – Alan Davidson 

#352 – Vlado Bozinovski 

 #545 – Jason Davidson 

**the numbers next to the player’s names are their official FFA cap numbers.

Let’s Stay Active! 

During COVID, it is more important than ever to stay active and maintain our physical fitness. It’s vital to keep our body and mind healthy to come out of lockdown physically and mentally strong. 

During a lockdown, it can be hard to find the motivation so we have put together a number of links to get you up, moving and football ready.

  • ⚽ Ultra Footballs – Best Football Drills to do by Yourself – Ultra Football shares some of the best football drills to do on your own that you can do anywhere so you can reach new personal heights. CLICK HERE

CLICK HERE for 8 of the best soccer drills to do alone. 

These are exceptional times. The coronavirus pandemic has profoundly affected grassroots football and our ACSC Community. We don’t know when this cycle of lockdowns and social restrictions will come to an end. But it will end. And when it does, we will have stayed active and be ready to hit the pitch at HC Kim Reserve.

    Fantastic news that two of our U111 Kanga Boys, Nicolas, and Dahnil have been selected for the Melbourne Victory’s Pre-Academy.

    The Pre-Academy provides players (girls U9 – U14 & boys U9-U12) a platform to enhance their skills alongside Victory’s technical coaches in a weekly training environment at one of five venues across metropolitan Melbourne. The curriculum focuses on ball mastery and key technical components and is the pathway into the youngest Academy team at the Under-13 level.
