The Oakleigh Chargers are an Australian rules football club playing in the TAC Cup, an under-18 competition in Victoria, Australia. They are based in Oakleigh, Victoria, representing the eastern suburban area of Melbourne. The Chargers were one of two additional metropolitan clubs introduced to the TAC Cup in 1995 as part of a plan by the AFL to replace the traditional club zones with independent junior clubs.[1] This was to help aid in player development and the process of the AFL draft. In June 2008 the Chargers moved into a new pavilion at their Warrawee Park.[2]

Oakleigh has had many of their former players drafted into the AFL, including Luke Power, Heath Black, Marc Murphy, Bret Thornton, Ashley Hansen, Andrew Carrazzo and Campbell Brown.

The 2008 Jim Honey Medallist (best & fairest) was awarded to Xavier Gotch on the 10th of October.
