The Success of Essendon Keilor College's Elite Football Program

 

Essendon Keilor College is the first established elite football school in Victoria.  The program has been so successful that in the 15 years since its beginning, the College has produced 28 players drafted into AFL lists and over 50 others who tried out with VFL clubs (a large percentage of whom have gone on to make it in the VFL).

 

One of EKC’s unique programs is that which they offer to prospective AFL recruits.  Essendon Keilor College has formed partnerships with Victoria University and two TAC Cup clubs in the Calder Cannons Football Club and the Western Jets Football Club.  Both of these clubs are part of the elite Under 18’s competition in Victoria.

 

The success of this program has been amazing as evidenced by the former students who have gone on to be drafted into the AFL since 1999:
