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.
