Year 9 & 10 Football Program

Essendon Keilor College was the first established elite football school in Victoria.  The Program has been very successful.  Since its beginning in 1999, the College has produced 28 players drafted onto AFL lists (the most of any school in Australia).

 

Essendon Keilor College has formed partnerships with 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.
