DOC Soccer Academy & DOC United Soccer Club 

Short but progressing history
DOC Football opened in Australia in 2005 and is situated at Eltham College/Research. The facility and its playing fields has to be one of the best in Victoria and is a fitting home for both our top class DOC Football Academy and DOC United Football Club.

David O’Connor founded the DOC Football Academy in Singapore in 2002 where he coached in the S- League. He recognised the need for an academy when he discovered there was a lack of grass roots coaching being offered to the children of Singapore. DOC Football Academy grew very quickly to become the leading Academy in the country.

In December 2004 David returned to Melbourne and spent almost a year setting up the Academy here to make sure that it was ready to offer the very best coaching possible for all kids. The most important thing was to get the right coaching staff and we believe that we have done that as all the coaches have been handpicked by David himself.

There are a great many coaches in the game of soccer that can teach skills and game concepts. However DOC Football is not just about soccer. We use the great game of soccer as a vehicle to develop players to their full potential to be future leaders on and off the field. DOC Football Academy trains players from other Clubs. Tom Roberts and Tray Sullivan were a two of our best players developed at DOC Football Academy.  Our programs focus on fostering a positive environment that allows the development of highly skilled players and teams, as well as leaders for tomorrow.

Huge Potential for DOC players
DOC Football Academy is affiliated with English league club Sheffield Wednesday and talent scouts for them. We have taken a number of our players overseas to train with professional clubs in the UK and had one selected to train with A-league club Melbourne Victory.  Over the past five years 12 Academy boys have signed for professional clubs in the Victorian Premier league, an achievement which we at the academy are proud of, as it proves to us that we are on the right track. Our number one objective is and always will be to give our kids the knowledge and skill to follow their dreams of playing the game professionally.

DOC Football Academy runs three programs:

Soccer Kick - For Beginners

DOC Kick - For Competent Players

DOC Football Academy - For Elite Players (players can't come into the group until they reached a certain standard and is by invitation only)

Our Players’ Achievement & Success
DOC United Football Incorporated was created by David and entered into the FFV leagues to enable players in the academy to play regular competitive football.  It has since grown within our community and become a very successful club, giving our juniors the best standard of competition possible. Our junior boys and girls teams up to U/12s were very successful last season with all of our teams finishing on top of their respective leagues. The U/11 girl’s team went through the entire season unbeaten and DOC Football is a big supporter of Girl Power. We know this success is because these kids have come through the DOC Football Academy from as young as 5 years of age

Our Adult Players keeping active while having fun...
The club also offers competitive football for both men and women in the Metropolitan League and over 35s in the Masters League enabling it to bring back mums and dads into the game, enjoying themselves whilst getting back into a good level of fitness and healthier lifestyles.  It also offers Veteran players over the age of 45 years the opportunity to keep playing well into their sixties in a non-competitive environment.

DOC Football has run its own Veterans league for the past three years. This league is for players over 45 years of age who still want to have a kick but just for fun and fitness not in an over competitive way. We have players still playing over sixty years of age.

Any player interested in joining DOC Football Academy or DOC United Football Club can register online.

Our commitment
DOC Football believes in giving back to the communities in which we live. We work actively within the community to raise funds for charities. Over the past few years we have raised money for many worthwhile causes such as the Lions club, Special Needs and the recent tragic Melbourne bushfires, to name a few.

DOC Football assists players to obtain education/sports scholarships at selected colleges and to date has successfully obtained these scholarships for a number of players.

DOC Football runs a free program for people with special needs. Furthermore, we also sponsor them and help with fundraising. David personally coaches the kids and generously dedicates his time. He wants to expand this program and intends to form a special needs league in the near future.

Our Vision
DOC Football is proud to offer soccer programs at every level – Special Needs groups, Competitive, Recreational and Developmental.  The traditional goals of our soccer programs include, but are not limited to, providing a structured, challenging learning environment where friendship, teamwork and lifetime mental & physical fitness can evolve.  The Academy and Club offer the most positive outlets for soccer players and is a place where the community can come to make friends and enjoy a good social atmosphere.
