About the club
The Old Camberwell Grammarians’ Amateur Football Club (OCGAFC) was founded in 1960 by several former students and teachers and joined the Victorian Amateur Football Association. To date the club has won 15 premierships across Seniors, Reserves, Under 19s and Club 18 Teams. It enjoys a close relationship with the school through the OCGA and retains the schools motto of Spectemur Agendo - by our actions will we be known. Amatuer football is highly competitive and we strive to win alongside promoting our core values of respect, fun and building community. We're social, relaxed and welcoming and have a diverse mix of Old Boys and players/supporters from regional Victoria, interstate and the Boroondara area.  The ‘Wellers’ or 'Wells' encourages interested players and supporters to join us on match days and can subscribe to our mailing list via our website - www.ocgfc.com.au With over 140 registered players we're always eager for help and please contact the president with any enquiries.

About the club
The Old Camberwell Grammarians Cricket Club was recently restarted in the 2015/16 season when a group of 2006 OCG leavers decided to take up running the former Hartwell Uniting Old Camberwell Cricket Club.

 

The first season comprised of 1 team in MCA B grade which made the grand final of that season. Our most recent season saw an expansion to 2 teams, adding a C-north one day team. Again in our second season, we made it to the grand final but fell short of the premiership.

 

Our club is built around mateship and community and we have a mix of OCG old boys and non-Old Boys. The club is highly social and will host many social functions for club members, family and friends throughout the year.

 

With the new OCG sports complex completed, we are extremely excited to be calling the venue our home ground for both matches and training. Our next goal is to continue expanding the club, with a particular focus of connecting more with OCG students, allowing them to play senior cricket while still in high school.

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 State League 4 Eastand 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.

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.
