Registrations for 2018 are now open
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR UNDER 14
Registration numbers have reached the cap that the club had specified for 2 teams (see below).
Please contact, Warde Elliott – 0401 807 051 or email to go onto the waiting list for this age group.
Depending on final numbers the club will make a decision whether a third team is viable.
PLEASE ALSO SEE BELOW REGARDING THE FACTORS TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN OUR NUMBERS HAVE EXCEEDED THAT REQUIRED TO FIELD 2 TEAMS
The Hawthorn Citz is a community based, grass roots junior football club that has grown over the last decade to 19 junior teams and 400+ players. In the U8-U12 age groups, we will accept all registrations up to the registration deadline (28th Feb 2018), & will allocate all registered boys and girls to a team.
In the U13-U15 age groups, the club reserves the right to close registrations before the deadline, upon receipt of 24 or 48 registrations per age group for 1- or 2- full teams, ie, 24 boys/girls per team. Factors that will be considered when considering additional registrations include years played at Hawthorn Citz and date that the registration is received. A wait-list may be setup for a 2nd or 3rd team – the Citz Committee will consider accommodating this 2nd or 3rd team if an additional 20-24 boys/girls register on the wait-list.”
We encourage everyone to register your child early, to avoid disappointment.
Female Footy Explodes at Hawthorn Citz
There were over 700 female footy teams competing across Victoria in 2017, double the number from the previous season. The Hawthorn Citz girls footy program is growing just as rapidly – after successfully introducing our first dedicated girls teams to the Club in 2017, the Club will grow to 3 dedicated girls teams in 2018.
The club would love to hear from any girls interested in playing – it doesn’t matter if you haven’t been through Auskick or played footy before, our coaches are there to help you learn the skills, be part of the team and most importantly have FUN.
Below the u12 level, girls can join any of the existing Citz teams from u8, 9, 10 and 11 age groups and for even younger girls that want to have a go, Hawthorn Auskick takes place every Saturday morning during the season on Glenferrie Oval, with heaps of girls taking part.

Supporting documents are attached. The committee welcomes all members of our Citz community to the AGM.
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.
