CALLING ALL FOOTBALLERS who are keen to develop their skills and take their game to the next level in 2022! Combine your first year of tertiary level study with football development training based at the Carlton Football Club in the Carlton College of Sport Football Development Program.

This program is designed for male and female football players of all skill levels, from community football to NAB League and VFL/VFLW, to develop their football skills in a high-performance environment with coaches at the Carlton Football Club.

The Carlton College of Sport will host an information session for the upcoming intake for the 2022 Football Development Program on Wednesday 18 August at 5:30pm at IKON Park.

Come along for a special Q+A session with Carlton co-captain Patrick Cripps to hear about his career so far and his ongoing football development journey.

The information session will include a tour of the Carlton College of Sport campus and the Carlton Football Club facilities and high-performance gym. Coaches from the Football Development program, Torin Baker and Maddy Prespakis, will give a presentation that will cover details of the Football Development Program as well as the academic courses.

Current footballers in the Carlton College program will also attend to answer any questions you may have about joining the course. Learn about their progress so far this year, weekly schedules and their individual football development plans designed by Carlton coaches.

The session will also outline the application system, selection criteria and interview process.
