Chelsea FC have a wonderful home at the HD Thomas Reserve on Edithvale Road, in EDITHVALE. We are situated about 900Metres from the beach and boast a wonderful set of facilities and playing grounds. We were recently granted Five Star Club Status by the FFV because of our fantastic community spirit, innovative programs and our philosophy of coaching.

The club prides itself on getting quality coaching and currently boast two ‘B’ Licenced and five ‘C’ Licenced on staff. This is the same quality of coaching that you would find at NPL clubs. In fact, one of our ‘B’ Licenced coaches runs the Goal-kick and U7 programs – ensuring youngsters get the best possible start to their football career.

We follow the Skill Acquisition Program as outlined by the FV and FFA, as well as aligning our coaching philosophy with the FFA. Our goal is to produce players that will love the game and play this game for many, many years. In the last five years alone, we have produced more than 70 players who currently play at NPL level at NPL clubs.

In 2019, some of our teams’ successes include victory in Bendigo FC, Easter Cup and Kanga Cup as well as winning league division – with each victory being produced by playing possession-based football. Our seniors also won their state league divisions in 2018, gaining promotion.

We are now seeking interested players to continue to join our football family. We have openings in all sub Junior groups (Goalkick to U12) as well as Junior teams (U13 to U18.) We also seek players interested in playing senior football. Positions are open to both genders.

Instead of trials for U8 to U11, Chelsea runs Gala Days where the players can come down and trial at their age group. These dates will be announced very soon and will not clash with NPL Trials.

Goalkeeping Development Program - Term 4

 Professional Goalkeeping Coach Coming to Chelsea FC
Chelsea FC has acquired the services of Spanish Goalkeeper Coach LUIS MIGUEL VELAY VIVEL to work directly with all goalkeepers – from beginners to experienced. This is a wonderful opportunity as it is rare to be able to get this type of instructional quality. Here is what Luis has to say about his own Goalkeeping path –

“My experience as a goalkeeper was mainly developed in Portonovo SD Academy. Some of my coaches in this Academy were professional Football Players (e.g. Borja Burgos), professional managers (e.g. Jose Barcala) and professional goalkeeping coaches (e.g. Edu Rodríguez). When I was sixteen, I signed for Villalonga FC. During that season I was training with the professional team and playing with the U-18’s. The team played the Promotion Play-Offs to 2nd B Spanish League. After that season, I signed for Portonovo SD, where I played alongside professional players like Tinaya (Real Madrid and Alverca) and Ibrahim Baptiste (Nantes).”

Luis is more than just a great keeper. He is also a school teacher and professional coach. He has degrees in both secondary and elementary teaching and has worked across Europe as a coach. He has worked at Goalkeeping academies such as Portonovo SD, CX Sanxenxo, USD O Grove and facilities such as Abrente and The Bridge London School.

Luis will be starting his Keeper coaching at Chelsea FC with a 4-week program in 2019 and then extend the program throughout 2020.
There are two group sessions which he will be taking in 2019.
