“Proud Major Sponsors of the Burnside Heights Football Club Bears”


Our journey began in 2010 with a vision to create a football club that not only excelled in competition but also served as a hub for fostering friendships, teamwork, and a sense of belonging. Established in 2012, the Burnside Heights Football Club (the “Bears”) has become a home for sportsmanship, camaraderie, and excellence in the heart of our community.

The Bears are more than just a collection of athletes; it’s a family united by a common love for AFL. From the youngest juniors to the seasoned veterans, we provide a nurturing environment where players of all ages and skill levels can thrive. Our commitment to developing talent is evident in the success stories of players who have commenced as Juniors and now proudly play in our Senior team.

Whilst Community is at the core of the Club, it is AFL that is our purpose. From Auskick, to Juniors and all the way through to Senior Men’s and Women’s teams, the Bears have an opportunity for everyone to get involved with the Club.

Boasting 9 Junior teams (boys & girls), 3 Senior Men’s teams and 2 Senior Women’s teams, the Club has grown to become a strong club both on and off the field. Already the club has received awards for Administrator of the Year, multiple Junior and Senior EDFL Best & Fairest Awards, Senior Team of the Year nominations and multiple Coach of the Year nominations. Of course, the ultimate accolade is Premierships and the club’s commitment to junior development has seen the club win Premierships in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2021, 2022 and again in2023
