Home to over 700 players, the Royals currently run four footballing programs.
Check back on this page for updates throughout the year as we advertise current openings, expressions of interest opportunities and more.
Regardless of what is happening at the club, there will always be a Waiting List form you can fill out to leave your details with the club.
We will contact all players on the waiting list when openings become available or when there are opportunities to trial for positions at the club.
Young players aged between 4 and 9 in 2022 looking to play football for the first time are encouraged to participate in the Essendon Royals MiniRoos Kick Off Academy in 2022.
This is the perfect place to start your football journey before moving into teams in the coming years.
