About the club
The Old Camberwell Grammarians’ Football Club has been a successful club as part of the VAFA since it was created in 1960. To date the club has won 15 premierships including 6 Senior Team flags, the latest of these won in 2007- promoting the club to B section for the second time in its history. The competition in which it plays is very competitive but the club is a very social, relaxed environment off the field. The ‘Wellers’ enjoy a majority of Old Boys on its playing list but anyone is welcome to play and are encouraged to come down if they are interested in playing.

About the Club
Old Camberwell Grammarians Soccer Club was established in 1984. The club currently resides at Deepdene Park on Whitehorse Road in Balwyn. The club was originally formulated to provide an avenue for soccer players post schooling years and other interested soccer players in the area to enjoy the 'world game' in an enthusiastic club environment.
Originally the club fielded a Seniors and Reserves team in the Amateur League (sometimes two games were played each weekend) and has now progressed to fielding a Seniors and Reserves team in the Provisional League Division 3 South East and a Veterans / Thirds team in the Thirds Metro Division within the Football Federation Victoria.
The club has traditionally strong ties with Camberwell Grammar and has assisted, and going forward, will escalate its assistance to the progress of soccer through the school. The ability for players to have an avenue to progress and continue involvement with soccer beyond their schooling years is encouraged and fostered.
The club has prided itself on its ability to grow and promote an environment where the game of soccer can be enjoyed. When we run out on the park the mantra is one of tough but fair. The club is a haven for enjoyment and comradery.
** The Murray River Marathon will be celebrating its 40th and final race at the end of the year. The Old Boys have always enjoyed a strong representation at the race and it would be great to get 2 boats on the river for the last time. The kayaking committee will be meeting in September, if you would like to attend the meeting to express your interest in being involved in the marathon you are more than welcome to attend. The MRM organisers are expecting hundreds of paddlers to take part and as such entry numbers will be capped so it is important to enter the OCGA teams as soon as possible.
For more information click here to visit the MRM website, to express your interest being involved in the MRM contact the Development Office at CGS.

The OCGA Kayaking Team or 'Wallies' as they are more commonly known, launched their first boat in 1998 to enable old boys who had competed in the Murray Marathon while at school, to continue enjoying the sport.
The Red Cross Murray River Marathon was established in 1969 and each year since has seen thousands of paddlers, support crew and officials from right across the world converge on the banks of the Murray River on December 27 to take part in the longest annual canoe race in the world. Over five days, the event covers 404km of the Murray between Yarrawonga and Swan Hill. The school has entered a number of teams in the Schools Relay every year for the last decade and in 2002 was successful in winning the division for the first time! More information regarding the event can be found at the Murray Marathon website. The team made a stunning debut on the Murray that year finishing fourth in the Men's Open Relay having entered only one boat. In 1999 the Wallies returned with a bigger team and two boats one of which came first across the line, the other fifth in the Men's Open Relay. The 'Wallies' have remained competitive, continually finishing in the top 3 or 4 and in 2007 once again winning the open mens relay.
Early April to end of September (excluding finals)
Hockey Victoria Competition
Open (All Ages), Metro 4 East Division
About the Club
The hockey club is collegiate group of people interested in playing hockey
to the best of our ability and catching up over a quiet drink after the
game. Team membership covers a broad span of ages from early fifties to
early twenties. We play a reasonable standard of hockey but not with the
objective of being the best team in Victoria - though certainly best in the
division is a goal. Our last premiership was a year ago and we are very
much looking forward to the next one.
