MAC Football Academy
Mount Alexander College, iVET and Melbourne City Football Club are collaborating to promote elite soccer talent at MAC and establish strong learning outcomes for these students. The group of 18 students selected to participate in the 2017 program comprises three Year 8s, three Year 9s, three Year 10s and nine Year 11s.
The students train three times a fortnight with an accredited coach provided by Melbourne City Football Club. These sessions run in the mornings before school. The students also compete in interschool sports, arranged friendly matches and a variety of tournaments throughout the course of the year, including the Melbourne City Cup.
All students who participate in the program are required to sign a document committing to the positive behaviour expectations of the school and the Melbourne City Program expectations. The Year 10 and 11 students will also complete a Certificate III in Sport and Recreation over two years. Theory periods are run weekly during Clubs & Societies.
