The partnership will allow students and coaches to work closely with the Club and the Melbourne City College of Football in establishing areas of co-operation in coaching, football services, elite training and playing opportunities, female coaching and commercial and community opportunities.
Head of St Michael’s Grammar School, Simon Gipson said: “We are tremendously excited about St Michael’s new affiliation with Melbourne City Football Club. It will enrich the School’s robust football program, and provide our students with access to various elite opportunities.’
Director of Sport (7-12), Tyren Montebruno said the partnership was a fantastic development to the school’s already growing football program.
Montebruno, Sophie Gardener, Director of Physical Education at St Michael’s, and students Mima Golias, Siena Mulia, Aiden Leung and George Giannakarios visited the City Football Academy for a tour of the facilities, meeting players and staff to celebrate the new affiliation.
