About Our Club
La Trobe University Soccer Club is dedicated to the the personal and sporting development of young people. Through our men's and women's soccer program, all players have the chance to learn about the game, practice their skills and develop the ability to contribute their own unique voice in a supportive environment.
While striving to be the best performing soccer club we can, we will always create a fun and social environment where members can build lifelong friendships and positive memories of their time at LUSC.
La Trobe University Soccer Club is a member-run community organisation with a 50-year history. What started off as a group of 11 men in 1968, interested in a social kick on the weekend, has turned into a club that is proud to be represented by over 210 members, with players representing every continent of the world. Last year, the club had nine senior teams: three women's and six men’s. We also run a successful Junior program for 7-12 year olds that compete in the FV junior leagues.
Our Club has a rich culture of social values and has always maintained its initial concept as a place for people to enjoy themselves and play soccer. This is evident in not only the number of members the club has attracted over the past few years, but also the acceptance of multicultural values that each member brings.
