Accelerated Football Program
In 2018 the Williamstown Football Club has continued to run its Accelerated Football Program. The club initially started the program in 2016 with Williamstown High School and now have expanded the program out to Bayside College (Williamstown Campus) with programs to Year 7-9 for both Boys and Girls. The Accelerated program runs weekly throughout the school year by qualified Williamstown FC footballers. This program teaches the students key skills on and off the field that they can use to improve their football knowledge and leadership skills. In 2021, VFLW premiership-winning coach Penny Cula-Reid will join Club Community Manager Andy Dandridge and several VFL and VFLW players in delivering the program at the brand new, recently developed Bayside College Williamstown campus ovals.
