Transport Accident Commission (TAC)

 The BFNC travelled by bus today, united as one club with a joint vision to support the TAC’s Towards Zero campaign. It is more than just a number and we must all stand together and encourage safe road user behaviour and put a stop to the growing road toll and number of serious injuries on our roads! #morethanjustanumber

Jaimie Hooper

 Congratulations to Jaimie Hooper who will be playing her 150th game for BFNC on Saturday!! What an amazing achievement and a massive milestone JJ has reached. 

 “I am personally excited to be congratulating my sister Jaimie Hooper, who will play her 150th senior netball game tomorrow! Woohoo! It is an amazing achievement, especially after a few breaks in service to give me an adorable/gremlin of a niece and nephew, and whilst also performing such a critical profession in our community. Your dedication to your family, self and our club in your current capacity as Junior Vice-President and Canteen Manager, and also all your dedicated service over many years as a coach, premiership player, netball coordinator and general mentor, has been outstanding!!! I am very proud. I have also been lucky to play alongside you over the years, although mainly when you were back as a defender as we could NEVER play together in goals! We would always get in each other’s way despite us being able to read each other’s mind and finish each other’s sentences – go figure! Enjoy the occasion, and I look forward to the day you play your 200th game!

Little does everyone know the insane amount of work you have done for the club this year too and over the past few years while raising a young family and doing shift work. I am committed in making it my priority that despite you being my sister, that your dedication is acknowledged and celebrated. You go above and beyond every single day for the club, and the way you balance and achieve everything you set out to do is admirable."

  - President Bonnie Cavanagh & older sister.

 Last round of the season and our teams have done us proud. Week in week out each and every player has found another level of improvement to be very proud of. A huge welldone to our 10s and 12s on a super season. Congratulations to our 14s and 16s footballers who now head to finals. You have worked so hard on getting to next week and the club is so so proud of you. A big day at netball with 15s needing to win to seal a spot in finals today. After such a huge commitment and journey by the club over the last couple of seasons we are proud to say that all 3 of our netball teams compete next week in finals. Well done to the committee, coaches, parents and officials in helping to grow and develop our youth. It will be a sea of Blue and white across both finals venues in the coming week. Congratulations everyone on a fantastic season. We wish all teams the very best of luck.

Sarah Heers

If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also,  Congratulations to Sarah Heers for reaching a milestone of 150 games at BFNC. Here are some comments from some people who have been with Sarah throughout parts of her journey:

“Sarah started playing for BFNC when she was 15. She went missing for a few years after following Jai to go play for North Heidelberg but remained loyal to the Club by coming down to support the teams on a Saturday when she could.
Sarah has been named Captain on numerous occasions after being voted in. It shows that her team mates respect her knowledge and leadership on the court.
Off the court Sarah has taken on roles within the general committee and on the executive committee as treasurer. No one dare cross Sarah when it comes to finances - she knows her stuff. In fact no one dare cross Sarah on or off the court in general - she’s a fierce one! Sarah loves the Club just as much as she loves an after party. 

Auskick under the Lights - June 21st

image21

 Last night BFNC hosted over 50 kids in chilly conditions with various Auskick activities.
We had our senior coach, Jamie Kelly, along with many of our senior footballers helping run the football circuits as well as engaging with the kids.
After the session was over, our President Bonnie was cooking up a storm on the BBQ for all the kids and parents to enjoy, whilst watching our senior boys train.
It was amazing to see so many families last night and can we just add in how cute these kids are?!
Thanks to all involved and a special shout out to AusKick Coordinator and BFNC footballer Ash Wood, who has undergone surgery today on his injured shoulder. We wish him a speedy recovery!
Thanks to Northern Star for the dinner provided later that night for all the footballers and netballers. We are on our way to building a big sporting community and we look forward to our next events where the juniors will join us too!
