Checkout everything you need to know about the Colac Football Academy

The Colac Under 15 Football Academy was established in 2016. It took in Under 15 players from the Colac & District Football League and the Colac Football Club. The Academy is designed to  up-skill local junior football talent. In 2016, the Academy was 8 sessions long, culminating in a match against a Geelong Junior Football Under 15 Interleague team. A number of the Colac Academy players were selected to represent the Geelong Falcons Under 15 side in September.

The 35 boys selected in 2016 were able to gain valuable learning’s from experienced coaches and mentors such as Dale Amos (Carlton Football Club Assistant Coach), Dave Newett (Former North Melbourne Football Club Development Coach), Barry Orvis, Brendan Forssman and Paul Liistro (Geelong Falcons Under 15 Coaches).

As part of the Academy experience was  to spend a day at the Geelong Football Club with coaches Blake Caracella and Paul Hood. It was in conjunction with the playing of a Geelong VFL game at Simonds Stadium.
