At Sandringham SC, we believe that investing in our players not only fosters their love for the game but, also increases the range of opportunities available to them. We currently operate four key programs – Budding referees, Budding coaches, Goalkeeper Training and Development Training. All program places will be advertised via our website and social channels. If you would like more information, you are welcome to contact us and a club representative will be happy to help.

Our Budding Referee Program was established in 2002 and is open to all junior players aged 12-16. It provides them with training to referee U8 to U11 Miniroos Sandringham home games on a Saturday morning. This is a great way for junior players to gain refereeing skills and confidence in real game situations. Many of our former “Budding Refs” have gone on to become official FFV referees and many other clubs have now adopted the program.

As part of our commitment to fostering the love of football amongst our youth, we are proud to offer our Budding Coaches program to our junior members.  Learning the skills of coaching builds not only football knowledge but also leadership and communication skills.

Junior coaches are paired together and allocated to teams across our miniroos teams with full access to our football department and adult coaches for support and guidance. 

Do you want to be the next Emiliano Martinez or Christiane Endler? Or maybe you have your heart set on aspirations closer to home.  Either way, we are here to help you achieve your vision. Sandringham Soccer Club offers dedicated goalkeeper training opportunities throughout the year.

We offer a range of programs throughout both pre-season and the regular season to support our players in developing their skills and confidence.

Development program opportunities will be shared via this website.
