Dempo Sports Club has joined hands with Salcete Football Club to form a well structured grassroots and youth football development program for 8 – 10 year olds which will help raise their football skills to the next level in a fun and entertaining environment.




Since its establishment in April 2013, the grassroots centers have seen attendance from over 150 enthusiastic children. Aged between 8-12 year old, school children are invited to come out and participate in the entertaining football drills specially designed by our Dempo SC coaches. The grassroots program is implemented in a way which is specific to a child’s skill level and which helps him to discover his own talent.


Currently Dempo Sports Club operates two grassroots centers, namely

  1. Tilamol Grassroots Center, Quepem
  2. Don Bosco Grassroots Center, Margao


If you need to enroll your child for any of these centers please contact 0832-2441444 (9:30 am to 5:30 pm)
