Our Junior Program is for boys and girls 6 to 18 years old.
The NBSC Junior Development Program is in line with the FFA National Curriculum.
Our Junior Development Program focuses on players between 5 & 18 years of age.
We have a ‘Coach the Coach’ approach, where the focus is on:
how to conduct training
match day preparation
ensuring every player plays to their full potential whilst having fun
There is a logical progression of training from year to year, ensuring it is age appropriate. Players will be taught how to play the game properly and flexibly in a team-oriented setting.
Through this program, players are free to express themselves and be creative. The main foundation is the love of the game, which is the program's root, whilst learning life skills such as teamwork, respect and discipline.

JUNIOR HUB (6-7)
The group is split each Sunday morning into small teams who play small-sided games against the clubs nominated by Football West in our hub.
The small-sided games involve teams of four North Beach players, guided by a game day leader volunteer, playing against teams from either Balga SC, Stirling Lions or Balcatta.
The game is played on a 30×20 meter pitch per the FFA small-sided game rules.
The focus is on participation, skill development, teamwork and enjoyment rather than winning.
MiniRoos is a modified form of 11-a-side football, designed to meet the needs of players under the age of 12, who have very different developmental characteristics and needs to adult players.
MiniRoos focuses on enjoyment and freedom of expression and aims to make football a better experience for children.
It aims to provide more touches on the ball and more opportunities to make decisions, allowing for more actual play.
Players will be more active due to playing both attacking and defensive roles within a match and will understand the importance of teammates and playing and working together.

Football is taken more seriously once the children turn 12, and the boys and girls typically separate into their own leagues.
At this stage of the Junior program, full-sized pitches, balls and teams are introduced, along with the opportunity to train twice a week.
The club is a strong supporter of developing the women's game by providing opportunities for girls to play football from an early age.
If there are two or more teams within an age group, the club undertakes a grading process to distribute players into the appropriate team. Please refer to the club's Grading Policy for more information
