We’re building our Masters Team!

We’re looking for women 35 and over who are keen to join our squad and play on a fortnightly basis, no previous experience playing footy necessary.

Boronia Hawks are delighted to announce that Stacey Peril has been reappointed as Masters Coach for the 2024 season. Stacey was our inaugural coach in 2023 and lead the team through their first season as the player numbers grew along with the team development and enjoyment. Stacey has played with Boronia since 2018 and in 2023 she played her 50th game and also represented Vic Country in Masters Football. She has been actively involved with the Hawks as a junior mum, committee member, junior coach, senior player and now continues as Masters Coach.

Our friendly and welcoming women’s squad train as one group every Tuesday and Thursday at Boronia Heights Primary School from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Training will move to Mondays and Wednesdays when the season begins.

If you or someone you know would like any more information, please reach out to Candyce Wright on 0431 731 671.

Dean Grice is Back to Boronia

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club are very happy and excited to announce to all our supporters that DEAN GRICE has committed to the Club for the 2023 season.  We are also delighted to let you all know  that Dean will wear his father’s number 13 on his back in 2023.

Dean is a six-time winner of the Bob Henry Medal for senior Best & Fairest at Boronia. He also won four League B&F medals in seniors and one in the Colts. He was named six times in the EFNL Team of the Year. Dean has played a total of 150 senior games for Boronia and kicked 169 goals after a strong junior career for the Hawks with more B&F medals. Dean played senior VFL football with Port Melbourne in 2012 until a serious knee injury in his eighth game.

The Grice family needs no introduction to long time supporters of Boronia. Dean’s dad, Mark, was a stalwart player with the club during the late 70’s and early 80’s and went on to be senior Team Manager for several years when Dean was at his peak. Mark tragically passed away in November 2022.  Dean’s mum, Jan, has been a much loved and valued volunteer at the club for many, many years. 

Jan and Mark Grice

Following Mark’s passing, Dean returned to the club in January of this year. He hasn’t missed a session and is keen to continue his legacy at the club. We ask all players and supporters to welcome him back to the club he loves, and to give Dean and Jan all our love and support for the coming season.

Under 12’s take on Gaelic Football!

Congratulations to our U12 boys that played in the Noel Walsh Gaelic Tournament today at La Trobe Sporting Complex.

3 Round Robin Games:

  • Won 17 – 1
  • Won 22 – 3
  • Won 14 – 0
  • They made it through to the Semi to win 11 – 10

Unfortunately after a super long day and lots of hard play and determination they lost to the Young Melbourne Gaelic Team in the Grand Final 6 – 24

They represented Boronia Footy Club with Passion, Mateship, Determination and Class. They have started their preseason superbly!

Good Job Boys!!

Hawka Polos – Coming Soon

A huge thank you to everyone in our community who voted on the new look for our Hawka Polos. This was the most engagement we have ever seen from our passionate Hawka family.

While we know we can never make everyone happy, the majority voted for this new colour way – inspired by AFL Clubs who have modernised their brands to ensure their players and supporters want to wear their uniform and merch as much as possible.

The new design features a charcoal trunk with brown & gold accents for that distinct Hawka look and feel as well as sponsors:

Also, a big thank you to Your Clubroom who supported us with design concepts to help us elevate our look in 2023 and beyond.

Polos will be available to order on our store soon, with both men and women’s cuts available.

Go Hawka!
