Uni Blues is more than just a football club; Blues have extensive social and professional networks throughout many industries that are willing to support you. We have many high profile and successful people associated with our football club.

Our medical team is arguably the best resourced in the VAFA, and the envy of most professional clubs, ensuring that our players receive the best medical care and rehabilitation.

Our senior coach is Quinton Gleeson, an ex-premiership Captain (2004) and now premiership Coach (2014). Quinton is supported by a fantastic group of assistants including ex-Fremantle Dockers midfielder James Walker, ex West Coast and North Melbourne forward, Ben McKinley and experienced Reserve coach, Christian Neeson.

Our Under 19s program participates in the VAFA Under 19 Premier competition which is arguably the strongest under age competition outside of the TAC Cup.

The Blues Under 19s environment helps to develop young footballers both physically and socially within the broader club and assist with their integration into university life, particularly those who are new to the city from country Victoria and beyond. The individual development focuses on both personal and professional development and fosters growth and mentoring with senior players, support staff around the club and the extended Blues Alumni.

If you’re interested in playing quality footy at one of the highest standards available within the Melbourne area with a fantastic bunch of blokes, don’t hesitate to drop us an email or give us a call on the contact details below.
