"You do it because you love children and you want to give them the rich experience associated with participating in team sports."

James Sidgwick, Founder of BSA 

The Brussels Sports Association

Established in 1958, the Brussels Sports Association (BSA) is a not-for-profit volunteer-run organisation that provides quality sports opportunities open to all children. Today, the BSA offers soccer, basketball and baseball training in English to children up to the age of 15 years old coming from 45 different international and local schools in Belgium.

Our ethos

The BSA strives to be recognized across Brussels as the home for high quality sports programs and a vibrant international community. It promotes fair play, skills development and fun for children and their families

The BSA CONNECTS families, INSPIRES potential and DEVELOPS passion for sports across the international community in Brussels.

Our Governance

Led by its Managing Director, the BSA’s Board of Directors oversee the running of the organisation.

The BSA depends on the incredible generosity and commitment of its volunteers – from its coaching staff to others helping out behind the scenes.


The BSA is formally recognised a not-for-profit organisation in Belgium (asbl - Une association sans but lucrative) but receives no government funding.

It fully depends on the incredible generosity of Corporate Sponsorships, partnership support and participation fees to cover all overheads. This includes the International School of Brussels who offer their state-of-the-art fields.


James Sidgwick initially established the BSA in 1958 to provide baseball for children from the international community. The Association has expanded since then, adding soccer (1970) and basketball (1979). Membership has grown from 200 families in 1958 to more than 800 families coming more than 48 different countries today.
