Committee & Volunteers

The success of the BJFC is shaped by the many volunteers and families who share their time and energy to help build a better place for our children to enjoy and learn to play Australian Rules football. These people come together from all walks of life, bonded by the Yellow and Black of Balwyn and committed that our children not only See The Future but can Be The Future here at BJFC.

On Match Days you will see our volunteer Tigers helping in many ways – often the smallest contribution makes the biggest impact and behind the scenes organising our teams, you will find our special breed of the Balwyn Tiger helping to make our Club the envy of our competition. From trainers, to managers, to coaches to our time keepers, to our goal-umpires and cutting the oranges…our Balwyn Tiger Army is second to none.

Together, this Tiger Army guides a Club which enjoys a strong foundation of expertise and contribution from our Committee who manage a broad range of areas in order to enable the Club to function. The Committee brings together a diverse range of experience and functions as a professional collective in order to ensure our Club caters for the needs of our local junior players this season, but also so the cries of Go Tigers!, can be heard well into the future.

Our Committee lead by our President, prides itself on providing a safe and enjoyable experience for each and every player and being a responsible and active organisation within our local community.
