Collingwood will soon add a number of young players to its list

Collingwood is now taking expressions of interest for its Host Family program.

Each year, the club recruits new players via the national and rookie drafts. The majority are young men aged between 18 and 20 and can relocate to Melbourne from all over Australia.

The club's needs vary from year to year, as it may draft players from the Melbourne area or draftees may stay with family or friends.

Nonetheless, the club recognises the need to provide high-quality accommodation to our young men in their first year of playing at the elite level and for their long-term development as responsible adults.

The most important factors when assessing your suitability are:
- Player having their own bedroom
- Comfortable facilities in your home
- Home is located within close distance to the Collingwood Football Club
- Willingness to embrace the player as part of the family
- Recognise that the player has strict training, dietary, and competition demands
