Whitefriars Football Club was established in 1986 and plays in the Victorian Amateur Football Association.
We are proud to belong to the College community. We exist to provide opportunities for Whitefriars College students and their friends to play football together under the Whitefriars name and wearing the Whitefriars jumper both during their time at the College and after their schooling has been completed. We provide an avenue for current and past students, interested players, and their families and friends to gather together for the benefit of everyone involved. We aim to provide a caring, committed, unified and successful environment on and off the field, and are respectful to all who encounter our club. With the great help of founding president Chris Mason and a motley assortment of players pulled from all potential sources. The College was quick to throw it's support behind the old boys and provided the main ground to play on.
We are an amateur club that seeks to operate as professionally as possible, with a full complement of qualified coaches, trainers and support staff in place. In 2014 we fielded 4 teams to be the biggest Senior Club in the region with 141 players wearing our jumper. We had two open age teams and two Under 19 teams. The club provided playing opportunities to 69 Under 19 players in 2014. In 2013 our Under 19 team won the Premiership in Section 3. Now in 2017 we have 128 active players ready to hit the field and deliver a premiership for the Whitefriars Football Club, while 20 players are still active students at Whitefriars College.
There is no doubt we are well placed to be a young, exciting and successful club in the years to come. We have the luxury of playing our home games at the College on one of the best playing surfaces in the region. We have a very vibrant and varied social calendar that caters for everyone.
Everyone is invited to join the club either as a player, official, helper or supporter. In particular we are looking to have strong Under 19s, Reserves and Senior team. Bigger and better proceedings to occur at the club and we would love you to be part of it!
