EBC partnering up with Victoria University


Luke Casey the Acting Sport and Recreation Coordinator from the City of Moonee Valley has announced some exciting news for Essendon Baseball Club.

EBC has been selected by Victoria University to be one of just three Moonee Valley City Sporting Clubs involved in the inaugural ‘Increasing Sport Participation at Your Club’ program.

The program will involve Victoria University students designing a participation framework and associated strategies for a targeted group of participants identified by our sports club. EBC will be working closely with Associate Professor Clare Hanlon of Victoria University during this initiative.

Victoria University has recently debuted in the top twenty-five percentile (number 55 out of a possible 243) in the inaugural Times Higher Education Asia-Pacific University Rankings (2017), placing it among the best universities in the region. It is the only international performance ranking to evaluate universities across their core missions of: teaching, research, industry income, international outlook and citations.
