Senior Men's & Women's Football and Netball, Junior Boys & Girls Football, Auskick and over 35's Veterans and Masters Football. Affiliated with EFNL. We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in Boronia.
The Dower boys (triplets) have amassed 174 Senior games between them since finishing with our Juniors but had never played together in the same team due to injuries etc, until Round 10 against The Basin.
Great young men, who epitomise Hawka culture. Keep up the good work boys. #Respect
Today we remember the life of Monique Lezsak, whose life was tragically cut short 2 weeks ago. Monique was the much loved cousin of Boronia Hawks player and coach Stacey Peril.
Monique was the mother of 10-year old twins, she enjoyed bodybuilding, wanted to become a Police officer and had a huge amount of life in front of her. Our Women’s Squad wore white arm bands during their most recent games in memory of Monique, in support of Stacey and as a way to raise awareness of domestic and family violence.
Our Senior President, Greg “Flash” Hannon has a message for the club community at the mid-point of the season as we head into the June long weekend.
It’s hard to fathom that we are at the halfway point of the season already. What’s not hard to fathom is that our teams are having great success which is not only due to talent but also hard work from the Board, Committee, Coaches, and the army of Volunteers that continue to support our club!
So – I wish to acknowledge and thank the following:
~ Our players are all just quality people and terrific ambassadors for our club! Keep supporting our functions and keep using your drive, energy, and initiatives to make our club grow and improve.
~ Our coaching staff are not just great coaches but they all build meaningful relationships with their players and care about the wellbeing of each individual at our club.
~ Our Incredible volunteers range from Committee Members to Board Members to the many that just give a little of their time to ensure our club can tick along nicely. Without our volunteers, we just don’t have a club so a huge thank you to you all!
~ To our Hawks Nest Coterie leadership, our Coterie members and to all our supportersthat give our club undivided support on and off the field.
~ Our loyal sponsors. Our sponsors give us the funding that we require to operate a successful club. Thank you to all of you!
~ To the families of our players. Your support behind the scenes often goes unnoticed. You feed, clean, and offer emotional support to your child, husband, wife, partner, parent and we thank you for that. I’m sure our players do!
So this is an exciting moment. With funding now in the budget that means we can move a step closer to delivering the facilities these legends and the broader community deserve.
$1 million will go towards delivering the new pavilion and $200,000 will go to helping the clubs fit-out the rooms – which means a lot of the stress that usually comes with a new home.
It’s no secret. I’m a massive supporter of grassroots sports and unashamedly so. I believe in it’s power to change lives.
And with these new facilities – it’ll make that job even easier and encourage more people to get involved, particularly girls and women who maybe couldn’t have due to the dated facilities not being fit for purpose.
This will change all that. Now, let’s get on with it!
Thanks to Team Manager, Ellisa Schmidtke, who sent us some pics and a report on the night:
“Great opportunity for these young men tonight. They were super impressive with the way they represented the club, and no doubt they all learnt a lot and have a new found appreciation of what it takes to get behind the wheel.”
