Boronia Hawks launch Gender Equity Plan

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.


JOHN ALAN BETTA HOME LIVING – Our featured sponsor for June.

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.

Congratulations and Thank You LMac

BHFNC wishes to extend our sincere gratitude to LACHIE “LMAC” McKERNAN who has decided to step away from leading our senior men’s team after 5 years at the helm.

LMac has been an inspirational leader, setting high standards and being the perfect role model for our younger group of talented players who have been coming through our ranks.

A premiership captain, L Mac’s legacy is the younger leaders at the club who now know what it takes to be an effective and meaningful leader at the BHFNC. Our Club is most grateful to Lachie and we hope his playing career continues to shine and he stays injury-free so that his impact is still felt for a few more seasons to come!

Greg Hannon, SENIOR PRESIDENT, BHFNC


Knox City Council Supports Boronia Hawks


Boronia Hawks welcome the tremendous news that Knox City Council has voted on Monday night to waive annual fees for all not-for-profit community organisation for 2021. In short, we won’t pay for the use of our two grounds and pavilions again in 2021.


Council has provided enormous support to Boronia Hawks and similar sporting clubs through their COVID-19 Community and Business Support packages over the last two years. Such support is incredibly valuable as the local community emerges from the wellbeing and mental health impact of lockdown.


Local sporting clubs are important community hubs and we extend our gratitude to Yvonne Allred – Councillor for Baird Ward and Mayor Lisa Cooper – Knox City Council for their generous support in helping us to do what we do best – bring people together for health, friendship and wellbeing.

Scott Nicholas
CHAIRPERSON, BHFNC


Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club are very excited to announce the line-up for BORONIA DIAMONDS for 2021. We welcome all new players to the Club and hope that they thoroughly enjoy their new home. Please make them feel very welcome!

Thanks once again to G.J. Gardner Homes Australia for their great support of our netball program.
