With a focus on adolescents, our volunteer team members are available to assist anyone in our Club community including coaches, team managers, parents and players.

We are very appreciative to the Knox City Council for the Community Development Fund 2020/2021 which funded this training and their ongoing provision of grants to support our Club community.
Thank you to Samantha Dunkinson for coordinating the training dates and requirements with the course provider. Thank you also to Karen Little, our Director, Community and Inclusion for her incredible work as our champion of mental health support within the Club.
Football will return to the Eastern Football Netball League this weekend.
The Victorian Government yesterday announced further easing of restrictions across the state, which take effect from 11:59pm on Thursday 17th of June and allow the return of Community Sport.
Below is a summary of key changes from the government and what they mean for matches played this weekend in Metropolitan Melbourne.
Travel restrictions lifted: • 25km travel restrictions have been lifted and people can now travel between regional Victoria and metro Melbourne.
Metro community sport: • Competition for seniors and juniors can resume with the minimum number of people required to participate and facilitate the activity. • People necessary for events and participation, including those who need to accompany children, such as parents, guardians and carers, as well as teachers, instructors, trainers, coaches and umpires, can attend matches and training. • Spectators are not allowed.
Indoor venue limits remain at 50. Unfortunately, this means that our Netball Competition cannot resume on Friday.
The League acknowledges spectators not being permitted to attend this weekend’s matches is a major challenge for clubs, and a disappointing outcome for supporters. However, we respectfully ask the entire EFNL community to please respect the protocols implemented by the Victorian Government for this weekend’s games.
These protocols have been put in place with the community’s health and safety the priority.
Updated Return to Play protocols will be distributed to clubs once they are provided to AFL Victoria by the State Government.
We thank the EFNL community for your assistance and understanding.
We have a proud Club history, with many memorable milestones achieved. This 2021 season sees another milestone being the first season that Senior Women’s and Development football teams and four netball teams have taken the field and court.
The benefits of the increase in our player numbers are many and a re-evaluation of our facilities and the way that the Club operates has been necessary. The allocation of resources to all of our sporting teams and meeting the needs of our volunteers and members is critical in creating a Club environment that is welcoming, family-friendly and inclusive, that gives all the best chance of experiencing success.
As a strategic approach to achieve this, the Board is pleased to present the BHFNC Gender Equity Plan. The plan links to the club’s vision statement “Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club is one club; working together for success, on and off the field”.
The plan will evolve and develop over time, with the needs of the Club. Feedback and suggestions are welcomed and should be directed to Scott Nicholas, Club Chairperson or Karen Little, Director Community and Inclusion.
When I arrived at the club way back in 1980, John Alan on Dorset Road was a valued sponsor of our club. Now, 41 years later, owner Brendan Lee still gives our club incredible support making John Alan Betta Home Living – Knox one of our clubs longest and most loyal sponsors of ‘The Hawks!’
If any players, supporter or member needs any new electrical items, make sure you pop down to John Alan; tell them you are from Boronia; or even seek out Brendan; and he and his staff will make sure you get the every best deal! Brendan, a local for his entire life, knows the importance of a thriving local football club and his support has been nothing short of sensational.
