Students from Melbourne City FC’s College of Football program had the opportunity to spend the morning with the Club’s three-time championship winning Westfield W-League side on Wednesday.
Six students from John Fawkner College, Overnewton College, Bendigo SE and Rowville Sports Academy spent the morning touring the Club’s City Football Academy (CFA) in Bundoora and watching the Women’s side train, before completing their own session which was run by Women’s Head Coach Rado Vidosic.
The training session was followed by lunch alongside the senior team, before the girls were able to enjoy some of the activities that the facility has to offer, including a competitive game of table tennis.
The Melbourne City College of Football is a football development and student learning initiative that was established as a result of a groundbreaking partnership between the Club and John Fawkner College in Fawkner, Victoria. The program has now expanded to 10 colleges across Victoria.
The key function of the Melbourne City College of Football program is to provide local Victorian schools with access to coaching resources from Melbourne City FC, establishing areas of co-operation in coaching, football services, elite training and playing opportunities, female coaching and commercial and community opportunities.
