Affiliated with EFNL. Seniors, Reserves, U19's, Junior Boys & Girls Teams, two Women's Teams, Veterans Football & Women’s Netball. We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in Boronia.
BHFNC wishes to pass on its sincere condolences to the Holding family on the sudden passing of Louise.
Louise is the mother of former players Steve ( who sadly passed away last year ) and premiership player Michael ( Plugga ). She was also the wife of Barry who was our senior treasurer for many years.
For the past 35 years, Louise has sat in the car on the far wing and watched hundreds and hundreds of matches, cheering on her Hawks! She loved watching her two boys play footy and she continued watching long after their retirements.
We hope Barry and Plugga and extended families are doing okay during this difficult time.
AFL Victoria has released updated protocols that identify the requirements to enable sporting clubs to return to training activities. The EFNL is keeping the Club fully informed on these matters, and the Club’s Board is making appropriate preparations.
IN THE MEANTIME, THERE IS TO BE NO TRAINING CONDUCTED BY TEAMS REPRESENTING BORONIA HAWKS.
The Club’s Board and Committees will advise when this can commence, but it will be subject to strict compliance with all state government, local government and EFNL requirements.
Individual exercise may continue in accordance with Victorian Government guidelines in respect of COVID compliance.
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.
