Book An Appointment Now

The Melbourne Centre for Athletic Performance (MCAP) is the EDFL’s Exercise Science & High Performance Partner.

The EDFL has a unique partnership with MCAP that is the envy of other community football leagues.

In 2020, the EDFL partnered with Adam Larcom and his MCAP team of professional strength and conditioning coaches to provide and promote high performance conditioning for Australian Rules Footballers of the EDFL.

The partnership has since flourished with a number of EDFL players accessing MCAP assets around strength, power, speed and muscular endurance.

To launch this partnership in 2020, MCAP offered the opportunity for seven EDFL players - Juniors and Seniors- to apply for EDFL/MCAP Scholarships.

The successful applicants were given six months of complimentary, open access to utilize the cutting-edge studio of MCAP under the guidance and instruction of elite MCAP staff.

The successful EDFL candidates also received courtesy physiotherapy sessions to promote recovery and overcome injuries incurred from training and playing.

With the EDFL season set to recommence shortly, set up an appointment at MCAP to experience a holistic approach to physical performance for football now.

For an appointment contact Adam and the team at MCAP on 1300116227.
