While our focus at Balnarring Thunder is not necessarily on winning, but respect, fair play, teamwork, healthy activity and fun. We applaud and acknowledge all of the hard work and dedication of those individuals, who have been duly rewarded and recognised for their outstanding efforts.
Don’t forget, we’ve got more champions representing the navy, teal and white in Grand Finals tomorrow at Pearcedale.

ROUND 1 : 2018 SEASON COMMENCES
Sunday 15th April
A lot of teams are still looking for volunteers to fill the officials roles. These roles are an integral part of your child’s football and need to be filled before round 1. If you can’t commit to every week then most roles can be job-shared and we are more than happy for you to do that. Please contact your coach or team manager to find out what roles are available on your team. Having more parents involved makes it so much better for the kids. It is very rewarding and can be lots of fun. Please put your hand up and get involved.
