Registration 2016 Soccer Camp

The camp will as usual be hosted by the Freeport Rugby and Football Club at their fields on East Settlers Way, Freeport. Many local soccer-playing kids are very familiar with the venue since the club also hosts hundreds of girl players in the Girls’ Development League every Saturday afternoon and the club’s own boys coaching sessions during the week.

The daily sessions will begin at 9am and finish at 3pm with lunch provided, along with chance to take a cooling mid-day dip in the club’s swimming pool.

The Club usually runs 3 teams in the adults’ Grand Bahama Football League; two men’s teams (Freeport FC and Brita Red Bulls – our Youth team) and one women’s teams (Freeport Jetwash).

Both Men’s soccer teams practice on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6.30pm.

Ladies soccer is currently taking a hiatus !

Boys Youth soccer (ages 8 to 19) includes a new Intermediate league for boys aged 14 to 17 and is every Wednesday from 5pm to 7pm

Freeport Rugby & Football Club is the oldest and most successful soccer team on Grand Bahama. Indeed the original organized soccer league on the island began at the Rugby club- initially between casino croupiers, hotel workers, teachers etc

The men’s soccer team under its various guises (of Cambridge, Campari, Pub on the Mall Red Dogs, Paint Fair Corona, Stella Athletic , Freeport Football Club and Brita Red Bulls) has won the Grand Bahama League title 5 times, the local cup 3 times and numerous 5 aside and 7 aside tournaments. In addition, it is still the only Grand Bahamian team to have ever won the Bahamas National Title (defeating JS Johnson by 3 goals to nil in 1996 to win an unprecedented treble).

We are currently the GBFL men’s champions through our youth team Brita Red Bulls who, although primarily comprising high school players , still managed to win the men’s division ! That team swept the GBFL honours for the last season with Rika Bazille winning MVP and Defender of the Year and Roger Johnson winning Young Payer of the Year. Freeport FC’s Jerone Cocker won the golden boot. Numerous Freeport FC players tied for the title of slowest player and worst foul! Two of the victorious tema are currently on soccer scholarship in the US with at least 3 more expected to follow next year

Anyone interested in playing is either welcome either simply to train (Mondays and Wednesdays 6.30pm to 8.30pm) or play in competitive or less serious surroundings.

In addition, friendly (more social ) games are organized against local hotels and visiting ship crews from vessels in Dry Dock at the local shipyard.

It goes without saying that we welcome visiting teams to our Club and shores to partake in some soccer and social interaction. This is at all levels, youth, all age, senior, mens, womens, co-ed ! You want it we’ll do it.

For our more experienced players (be they seasoned campaigners, old war horses or simply old farts) we continually look to put together an Over 35s team which both host teams but also carry their fearsome reputation to foreign lands.

Regular games are played against Florida teams in the Florida Annual Cup. We have even traveled to Brazil for a friendly (yes we are that desperate for games) however the opposition had to cancel at the 11th hour as they could not get a full team-–a pity they could not of told us before we got on the plane!
