Women’s Football with Boronia Hawks in 2018

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club is offering exciting opportunities to be involved in the explosion of interest in Women’s Footy.  Please contact our General Manager, Harry Burgess, to be part of this booming sport option for women.

 

One Club – Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club

Boronia Football Club and Boronia Junior Football Club are very pleased to announce to all players, members, sponsors and supporters that the three resolutions put to a vote at last night’s Special General Meeting were passed. The two clubs will now proceed with plans to formalise our merger to one Club, the Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club.

The One Club Solution will ensure a sustainable football pathway from AusKick to Juniors to U19’s to Seniors, and even to Veterans. The goal is to provide a similar pathway for girls footy from AusKick to Juniors then Seniors, and also to build on our current commitment to the Club’s Netball program.

Last night’s meeting was well attended and provided an open forum for discussion and understanding of the Club’s future strategic direction. Many thanks to all those who attended or lodged proxies. Thank you also to Kristan Wood and Ellisa Schmidtke for successfully leading this initiative for our Club’s future.

Girls Footy “Come and Try” Day

The Boronia Hawks Girls Footy “Come and Try” Day was a great success with all the girls getting stuck into it and having a great time. We all look forward to another footy clinic for the girls during the September holidays.

Harry Burgess, BFC GM, had a dream team assembled to look after the girls. We extend a huge thank you to: Olivia Flanagan from Box Hill Hawks VFL Womens & Vic Metro Girls; Mel Hogg & Elle Short, womens football players with AFL Victoria; Sean Buncle from EFL; Craig McKenzie from BJFC; and Damon Webb from BFNC.

Boronia Football Club and Boronia Junior Football Club are working together to give girls in Boronia the opportunity to enjoy a good game of footy out on the ground, not from the sidelines. Look out for more action photos on Facebook very soon!

Boronia Football Club has been fortunate over the past few years to have Rick Castricum with us as our Club Chaplain.

More importantly, Rick is available to any of our players who may feel they need to talk to someone about the ups and downs of life. Please feel free to get in touch with Rick on 0418 375 377.

School Holidays “Come and Try” Day for Girls Footy!

Do you know any 10-13 year old girls interested in giving footy a go? Maybe they already play and want to take their game to a new level?

After the success of the recent Girls School Footy Day (which was enthusiastically supported by our club), we would love to see a whole range of 10-13 year old girls join in our school holiday clinic. It is set to be lots of fun and a chance to develop skills and knowledge about our great game.
