AFL/W Academy

Applications are now closed.

Our extremely popular and successful AFL/W Academy offers students the opportunity to be taught by specialist teachers, coaches and players during school contact time with the aim of growing their passion for AFL and developing them into elite footballers.

Academy entry and Scholarship opportunities are available to students entering Year 5, 7 and 10-12 at CGS at the beginning of the school year.

Entry into the Academy is based on a tryout process and students are ranked according to their performance. Scholarships are awarded to the highest achieving players on the day, depending on the number of scholarships available for their year level. The results of the tryouts also allow students who perform at a suitable level to gain a place in the academy without gaining fee reduction.

This scholarship is awarded in 3 categories in each applicable year group, with the maximum discount shown below:

Category A:     50% fee reduction

Category B:     25% fee reduction

Category C:     No fee reduction, acceptance into Academy

The continuation of this scholarship and placement in the Academy is subject to acceptable achievement and positive contribution to the ethos of the school, including a commitment to the co-curricular program. This is reviewed on an annual basis.

For further information, refer to our AFL/W Academy section of the website, under the "Opportunities" tab.
