Collingwood City Soccer Club in Richmond
Collingwood City Soccer Club is a vibrant community based club in Richmond, close to Kew and Hawthorn, that has teams for boys and girls from kinder through to junior and youth and Senior men's.
Collingwood City FC (CCFC) seeks to offer a modern player development program through high-level and up to date coaching techniques. Our coaches are dedicated and passionate about developing their junior and youth players and their main experience and focus is this age group. CCFC programs, progress with the player and we believe that the basic fundamentals cannot be missed. This must all occur while the young player is having "fun" and enjoying attending the training and games.
The CCFC programs cover the basic fundamentals of football through to technical game training sessions. We believe that we have implemented one of the best all round programs that is both affordable and of the highest standard. We offer footballers training programs to suit their requirements, whether it's a program for a social soccer experience or to pursue their desire to progress into a technical skilful player that can aspire to play at the highest level.
The focus on player development is in line with the FFA national coaching curriculum and world best practice

Fabulous news: $1.5 million in funding!
Yesterday the Minister for Sport John Eren MP and Richmond's local member Richard Wynne MP made a trip to CCFC to announce $483,707 in funding from the Andrews Labor Government for an extension and refurbishment of Malcolm Graham pavilion at Kevin Bartlett Reserve, thanks to the Labor Government’s Female Friendly Facilities Fund.
The mayor of the City of Yarra Daniel Nguyen was also in attendance and announced that the CoY will contribute over $1,000,000 to the project.
This is an outstanding commitment to community grassroots sports and the Collingwood Football club would like to thank all those involved in making this happen.
The plans look fantastic and we cannot wait to use our new change rooms and utilise our modernised clubhouse (that will have both heating and cooling installed!)
On most weekends, tens of thousands of girls, boys, women and men can be found playing and officiating football matches across Victoria, watched and supported by thousands more parents, family members, club officials and volunteers.
Over time, a minority of these people have unfortunately decided that it is ok to:
Abuse referees, both official and volunteers
Scream and yell at players, coaches and officials
Criticise performance rather than celebrate effort
Ignore, manipulate and question rules and decisions
The impact this behaviour has on our game cannot be understated. People stop playing the game, referees stop officiating, tensions between clubs rise.
In order to make a genuine difference to the behaviour of everyone involved in our game, a cultural shift needs to occur. This needs to occur at all levels. We need to Respect The Game.
