Two local women complained to police that they were raped by a group of men on Saturday, October 10 at Cowes on Phillip Island.
One of Montmorency's coaches said the trip was not officially connected to the club.
"It was not an official trip, the only official football trip involved seniors and reserves players that went to Glenelg," he told AAP.
"There was no under-19s footy trip, I think a few of the boys went away with friends.
"We had a lady from the AFL come here halfway through the football season who gave a talk how to respect women.
"We don't want any trouble, we just want to play the game, be successful, give some of these young blokes a game and get them off the streets."
