Junior School Rugby & Football Training

All training will begin on the week beginning the 25th March in preparation for the internal trial matches organised at Villa Park on Sat 30th March. All players wishing to try out are to make themselves available for the two trials, so the coaches can get a good look at the boys. The schedule is below. Please be aware that the rugby trial times will be the same as training for the season, but the football trial times will not match training times. Due to the space needed for the large number of teams, training will be held for footballers on different mornings and afternoons depending on the availability of each team’s coach.

Year 5 and 6 Football

The trials for Football will be held on the following days at Langlands.

Football Squads Monday 25th March/1st April Wednesday 27th March/3rd April
YEAR 5 3.15pm- 4.45pm 7.00am-8am
YEAR 6 7.00am-8am 3.15pm- 4.45pm

Please note that after the trials, all football players will train either on Langland’s or Whinstanes with days and times to be confirmed by the coaches. Bibs will be supplied to help identify the boys, if they don’t have a soccer jersey to wear. They will also need to wear shin pads, footy socks and boots.

Villanova Football Uniforms 

All students who play football from Years 5-12 must purchase the Villanova football uniform in readiness for the up-coming season. This includes shorts, jersey and socks. The Uniform Shop will have all football gear available for purchase.

IMPORTANT – all boys who sign up for rugby and football WILL make a team, therefore, parents can purchase these items of clothing.

Villanova Football Uniform

  • Villanova Football Jersey
  • Villanova Football Shorts (not the PE shorts/ not the Basketball shorts)
  • Villanova Rugby/Football socks
  • Shin guards compulsory
  • Villanova Green Zip Jacket or Villanova Track Suit optional (no other jackets/jumpers are permitted)

Please Note

  • Football players must wear the Villanova Football shorts not the Villanova Basketball shorts, which do look similar.
  • The Canterbury Rugby and Football socks are the same.
  • What to wear at training? – It is acceptable for both the rugby and football players to wear any coloured/club clothes to training. Boys are not encouraged to wear their Villanova playing uniform to training but may do so if they wish. We certainly would not recommend rugby players to wear their PE uniform or any shirt that will get ripped and torn. The Uniform Shop has some old stock in limited sizes (jerseys and shorts) which would be prefect for training but not to wear on game days. Old stock prices start at $8.

The Senior Football Development squad (1st/2nds and Japan tour group) will now train at AC Carina Football Club each Wednesday from 3.45-5.15 pm. Details below.

Any questions or concerns should be directed through the Villanova AIC Football Co-ordinator – Mr Anthony Kemp Email:

All students at Villanova College are eligible to take part in our annual football program. Preparation for the AIC Football competition begins towards the end of Term 1 after the cricket and volleyball seasons. However, the 1st XI and development squads commence preseason training earlier.

Football coaches consist of Villanova staff, parents and Old Boys, while a number of highly qualified and experienced specialty coaches are sourced from outside to assist in player development.

All AIC games are played on Saturdays, with home matches at our Villanova Park playing fields in Tingalpa. The football uniform consists of the Villanova football jersey and playing shorts, green and gold hooped socks, football boots, and shin guards, which are compulsory.

All football training for the Year 5 and 6 teams is conducted on Whinstanes Oval, located on the College campus, or at Little Langlands Park, located across the road from Villanova. All teams from Year 7 to 12 are transported to Villanova Park for training.

The season generally consists of seven regular games with at least two trial games. Boys in the A or B sides can expect to attend two training sessions a week, whilst all other teams have between one and two sessions a week.

Each year, Villanova’s top football players are invited to partake in an exclusive preseason program held throughout Term 1, which challenges them to develop themselves as players and competitors.

A football tour to Japan is offered every second year as part of our development program. Every alternate year the players travel to Sydney to compete against our brother school, St Augustine’s College.

Football is supported by an active parents of players group who assist primarily with the canteen at home games and with organisation of the yearly tour.

Since the inception of the AIC Competition in 1999, Villanova College has taken out the title of the ‘AIC Champion Football School’ and has won many premierships including the ‘1st XI’ title on four occasions.

During the season, additional information such as training times, team lists, coaching staff, schedules and results is available on the College website.
