Support for Junior Teams from Knox City Council!

Boronia Hawks would like to thank Knox City Council for awarding the Club $2,760 under the Community Development Fund to cover the costs of Sport Trainer and First Aid/CPR training to support our Junior teams in season 2022.

Completion of these courses by team volunteers is mandatory and essential for the physical wellbeing of our players. The cost of these courses is the responsibility of the Club and so we are very appreciative that it will be covered in 2022 through the Council’s generous support.

Many thanks to our two fantastic volunteers for their work in gaining this funding for the Club: KAREN LITTLE (Director, Community & Inclusion) and KERRYN WESTCOTT (Grants Program Co-ordinator). These two ladies work very hard to gain extra funding for the Club’s activities through our grants programs.


Boronia Hawks receive new grant from Knox City Council

Boronia Hawks’ Community Programs have received a very generous boost from Knox City Council’s fund for Community Development Grants.


The Club successfully applied for a grant to assist with the funding of programs to support our juniors in the important area of mental health.

Program 1 is to be provided for Junior players by our partners at Outside the Locker Room. Two sessions will be conducted with the first covering Mental Health and the second covering Social Media and Cyberbullying.


Program 2 will be provided by St John Ambulance for our Junior Committee and /or coaches and will cover the essential skills and confidence to recognise and support people with a range of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, suicide and addiction.


Once again the extraordinary skills of Kerryn Westcott in writing a professional grant application have benefitted the Club in funding these two programs. We are very grateful to Kerryn and of course Karen Little, our Director of Community & Inclusion, for their teamwork in developing our Grants Program to support our young players.
