65 Essendon Keilor College students or staff have played or umpired VFL/AFL Football since 1947.

Elite Football Program – Select Entry
Essendon Keilor College was the first elite football school established in Victoria in 1999. It involves strong partnerships with the Calder Cannons and Western Jets TAC clubs (part of the elite Under 18’s competition in Victoria) and Victoria University. This provides direct pathways for our students into the Sport and Recreation industry.
Access to the VET Sport and Recreation Football course enables students to combine their VCE with a Cert III in Sport & Recreation and a football development program.
