De La Salle College & St Kilda Football Club

The Saints are one of 18 clubs who compete in the national AFL & AFLW competition, representing more than 55,000 members and a significant community in Melbourne’s south stretching from Port Melbourne to Portsea. This includes many of the suburbs that our students reside in through the St Kilda FC heartland.

In 2018, the Saints returned to their spiritual heartland of Moorabbin and to a new $40 million headquarters that rivals any other in Australian sport. The Saints are proud of their contribution which includes a range of programs designed to foster inclusion and provide an opportunity for every young footballer in the region to reach their potential. In enabling this to occur the STKFC has joined in partnership with De La Salle College through their STK Education programs Students are guided through the inner sanctum of the industry and schools can choose their experience. The relationship enables our students to access a range of components of a high-performance sports facility.

For De La Salle College, this has included football clinics with our Primary students run at RSEA Park and Health and Physical education classes, specifically in areas of Footy, Technology and Innovation.  We have been fortunate that given the strong relationship, we have also seen our Senior Football side play ACC matches at the Saints home ground, RSEA Park.
