2017 Registrations Now Open

Hawthorn Citz registrations are open for the 2017 season. The club has capped registration fees at 2016 levels to help encourage as many players as possible to play the great game.

Registrations will close on February 28 – and possibly earlier in some age groups – so it is important for parents to act early.

We’re a happy team at Hawthorn

We are a community based, grass roots footy club that has grown over the last decade to 19 junior teams and 400 players. We are proud of the way that we play football and proud to be the custodians of the Club for the footballers of tomorrow.

Our Citz mantra is S.I.D.E – we provide an environment for our players which is:

We are about:

  • Being the best club for each and every player who wears the brown and gold.
  • Giving our players and parents an opportunity to make new friends – some that may last a lifetime.
  • Providing a safe and inclusive environment for our boys and girls to develop their skills.
  • Developing our players not just in football, but in being a team member and thinking about team before individual.
  • Having a strong sense of community and enjoying the company of our fellow Citz members.

We aren’t just about winning premierships, but we will celebrate them when we have the good fortune of doing so.
We aren’t about playing in a particular YJFL division. We aim to be competitive in whatever division we are playing.
