Collendina Cobras Football Club

Collendina Junior Football/Cricket Club in partnership with Ocean Grove, is a proud community based junior club.
The Collendina Junior Football Club (CJFC) was established in 2002, based out of Collendina Reserve on Minerva Close, Ocean Grove. Two U/12 sides were entered into the Eastern Colts Little League (ECLL). The following season, the CJFC conducted a merger with the junior section (U/14 and below) of the Ocean Grove Football Netball Club (OGFNC), which was then ratified in January 2003. The Ocean Grove Collendina Cobras Junior Football Club was born.

This saw the club swell from having two Cobras teams compete in 2002 to eight Cobras teams compete in 2003 (four U/12, four U/14). The first piece of recognition for the club came in 2004, when star junior Jordan Jones won the league best and fairest award in the U/14 Division 1. Jones would later go on to play AFL for the West Coast Eagles.

The trophy cabinet got its first lot of silverware in 2005 when the Cobras won the prestigious U/14 Division 1 premiership, defeating much fancied teams from around the Geelong metropolitan area under the tutelage of coach Dave Farrell.

The U/12s also staked their claim with back-to-back Lightning Premierships in 2005 and 2006. By now the club was fully established, having entered its first U/10 team into the ECLL in 2006. This provided a pathway directly from Auskick.

In the decade since, the club has gone from strength to strength, catering for the growing population of Ocean Grove and surrounds. The club has inducted two life members for their contributions: Neale 'Wal' Walter (2011) and Brett Pearson (2014). The Cobras have also produced four AFL draftees, one of whom  Zaine Cordy  became a premiership player for the Western Bulldogs in 2016.

With the recent introduction of U/9s football and AFL Barwon's restructure of junior football age groups, the Cobras now have a huge presence in the local area with 12 teams set to compete in 2018. The continued support of club stalwarts, volunteers, parents and friends has allowed the club to thrive and grow exponentially across its short history.
