Graduates of our Football Academy have secured senior and international playing positions, as well as obtaining employment within the sporting industry.


The Underdale High School Football Academy celebrated many successes including 8/9 Boys Metropolitan Champions, Year 10 Boys State Knockout Champions, Open Boys 5 a side State Champions and individual students have been selected as state representatives for national championships, Australian Futsal and State National Training Centres. Several Underdale High School students were also selected for state team representation and invited to trial with English clubs. The Underdale High school team was a succesful competitor in the SINGACUP 2016 in Singapore, coming second in the competiotion.


We offer HPE opportunity for students to join our Year 8-10 Netball Special Program as part of the HPE curriculum. This is an elective course conducted for a semester and is not compulsory for students. The course is designed for students who have a genuine interest in and commitment to learning about netball.
