Football - Christian Brothers College


Playing Football since 1895.

Immerse yourself in a footballing legacy built on the spirit of brotherhood.

The CBC Football program follows a rich tradition of fostering a passion for the sport, with a key focus on the development of physical and interpersonal skills of our boys. Structured to afford our students the best opportunity to succeed on the field, our Football Program teaches skills including resilience, strength, fitness, teamwork, and commitment, in addition to practical and tactical knowledge of the game.

Football Program

Students involved in the CBC Football Program engage in rigorous pre-season training which includes strength and conditioning sessions and a pre-season camp, conducted over two key locations:

  • CBC Ovals (Park 15)
  • The College Gymnasium

As part of the co-curricular component, football students will participate in a series of games under the Sports Association for Adelaide Schools Program (SAAS). SAAS’s Aussie Rules is played during Term 2 and 3, bringing together teams from across South Australia to compete for the State Cup.
