BSSA: Bali Schools Sports Association

The BSSA soccer season is soon upon us. For those of you new to the school, BSSA stands for the Bali Schools Sports Association. There are 10 schools in Bali involved in this organisation.

The seasons are:

  1. Soccer – Term 1 & 2
  2. Volleyball – Term 2
  3. Basketball – Term 3
  4. Swimming – Term 3
  5. Cross-Country – Term 4
  6. Athletics – Term 4

If your child wishes to participate in the BSSA soccer season they must sign up with their classroom teacher (Primary) or PC teacher (Secondary).

All classroom teachers and PC teachers have access to the sign-up sheet.

All teams will have an assigned coach and a practice session once a week outside of school hours. Usually, practices are in the morning. Every Wednesday afternoon, your child will have a practice or game at CCS, or they will travel to other schools to play games. Details for each week’s matches will be sent out via email at the start of each week. Please ensure your correct email address is with the school.

If your child is unable to make the practice times, that is okay. However, he/she must be able to attend Wednesday games/practices. Sometimes this means your child will not be back at school until 5 pm.

If the above is the case, your child must notify the coach so that the coach is aware that he/she will be missing practices, but will be attending Wednesday’s sessions.

Your child must also sign a BSSA Code of Conduct and Permission Slip. If your child has already participated in a BSSA sport, they will have already completed the form and you will have already signed it. It does not need to be signed again. This form covers the child’s participation for the rest of their school enrollment at CCS.

A form is attached here, but hard copies will be handed out to students who need them at the start of each sports season.

If you have any questions about the program, please email Mr Steve at
