Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club has been in a great partnership with the Knox Club over many years. A valued sponsor, they have welcomed us for post game day award ceremonies and hosted dozens of fantastic events from balls to presentation nights. We are very proud to have the Knox Club as our Platinum Sponsor.
All BHFNC players are members of the Knox Club and enjoy the great benefits that come with it. If you’d like learn to learn more about a membership or any of their offerings, please visit the Knox Club website.
The Club will be hosting a RSA accreditation course on Monday the 5th of August at 6:30pm.
This session is intended to certify a team of our senior players and club members who can then assist with the serving of alcohol during the senior finals series at Tormore Reserve from 25 August to 14 September.
We have a limit of 30 participants for the course, which will be fully funded by the Club, with no cost to participants. It will be run by Peter Rosenthal from Good Sports. At the end of the session, participants will be fully certified to serve alcohol at Club events, including finals, as well as at other venues.
To express your interest in the course please email Dave at email@example.com or send me a message via Facebook. Places can not be guaranteed for everyone, so please sign up early!
Work has now started on the new lights at Tormore Reserve.
We will have four new 28m poles, each one carrying 6 lights. For the sparkies, they are 6 Philips Optivision BVP525 LED Luminaires. They will be a significant improvement for training sessions and will enable us to conduct twilight and night matches.
Many thanks to Alan Tudge MP for his support in funding this tremendous addition to the facilities at Tormore Reserve.
Finally, thanks our Grants Co-ordinator Kerryn Westcott for successfully managing the submission process resulting in our winning the grant; and to our Project Manager, that amazing man of many talents, Kristan Wood!

Great news for our Boronia Auskick Centre! We have recently been advised that we have earned recognition as a AAAAuskick Centre.
The Access All Abilities(AAA) NAB AFL Auskick program is designed to ensure that Auskick Centres are as inclusive as possible and that children of All Abilities have access to participate in the great game of AFL football.
The implementation of our Sensory Space at Boronia Auskick has been a significant reason for this recognition.
SamDunkinson, our Auskick Co-ordinator, uses the space to assist the kids who might get a little overwhelmed by everything and just need a quiet spot for a while. The Club has been supported in this initiative through the generosity of our great supporter Sam Dib and Lipari Pizza Pasta.
Enquiries regarding Boronia Auskick may be directed to Samantha Dunkinson on 0419 502 633.

Please join us in congratulating Luke Hannon on achieving the milestone of 50 games of senior football for the Club. Luke joined Boronia in 2017 with a CV including stints with Eastern Ranges and Casey. With two Bob Henry Medals and a Premiership to his credit in his first two seasons, Luke is sure to make a significant contribution to the Hawka for many years to come.
Please join us in congratulating Kellie Newton on achieving the milestone of 50 games of EFL Netball for the Club. Kellie was the founder of the Club’s netball program back in 2014 and was a member of the inaugural EFL Premier Divison premiership team in that same year. In 2018 the Club recognised Kellie’s contribution by naming the Club’s Netball B&F in her honour.

Over the next two rounds, the Eastern Football League and Eastern Region Girls junior competitions will be launching a new initiative, ‘EFL Silent Sunday’. Some key objectives are:
Give players an opportunity to trust their skills and instincts without sideline input and/or correction.
Remind coaches, parents & players that PRACTICE is the time to learn and receive instruction. GAMES are to showcase their learning.
Remind everyone that junior football is solely for the kids and their enjoyment.
To support the umpires who are officiating the game and developing their skills
Clap and cheer after each score only (for both sides).
Encourage players and umpires.
Enjoy the game
Verbally abuse umpires.
Verbally attempt to correct or instruct umpire’s decision.
Verbally abuse players.
Verbally attempt to correct or instruct players.
Verbally abuse any opposition players, officials or supporters
Clubs also have the opportunity to opt-in with the two below extras; these however are not compulsory.
Clubs can opt to have no spectators on the ground during the quarter-time and three-quarter time breaks. This will help ensure the coaching/instructing messaging is coming from the coaching staff (please communicate with the opposition club’s team managers and announce on PA should your club wish to include this option). PA announcements
Prior to the commencement of the game, those clubs with a working PA system can choose to deliver a message before each game (this has been communicated to clubs). Clubs may also utilise the PA at half time of games to remind spectators of the guidelines.
Boronia Hawks have partnered with our neighbours at Knox Leisureworksonce again in 2019 to provide a fantastic health and fitness facility for our players, members and supporters.
As part of this partnership, we are proud to announce that Zack Brasher will be sponsored by Knox Leisureworks with a 12 months Platinum Membership!

Boronia Hawks are very pleased let all our supporters know that Samantha Dunkinson has been nominated for the AFL’s AUSKICK VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD. #auskickvoty #boroniahawks
Sam is our Junior Vice-President and took on the role of Boronia Auskick Co-ordinator at the start of this year. Boronia Auskick has gone from strength to strength under her guidance, with 105 registered players getting out for a kick on Friday nights at Tormore Reserve.
Sam has got it all running smoothly, reflecting her training as a teacher. Parents are getting involved in running the groups and we have senior players from both our men’s and women’s teams actively involved in helping the kids to develop their skills.
Sam has brought an enormous passion and commitment to Boronia Auskick, resulting in some great initiatives. She has brought sponsors Boronia McDonalds and Lipari Pizza on board to assist with funding of new equipment including footballs and water bottles. Sam has also introduced a Sensory Space to assist the kids who might get a little overwhelmed by everything and just need a quiet spot for a while.
Sam’s contribution to the Boronia Auskick has seen a real boost to our junior numbers with many Auskickers also choosing to play junior footy with Boronia Hawks. Our two new Under 8’s teams are a direct result of the boost to our Auskick program over the past two years.
Well done Sam! We congratulate you on your well deserved nomination and wish you well when the awards are announced. You are already a winner in our eyes!
