Welcome to Ballarat Gridiron – home of the Ballarat Falcons (Men’s Div 2) and Ballarat Kestrels (Womens).
The Ballarat Falcons were founded in 2012 and played their first season in Gridiron Victoria in 2013. Since then, the Falcons have reached the 2014 Gridiron Victoria Division 2 championship game and have launched a Senior Women’s team, the Kestrels (looking to recommence for the 2017 season). We also plan to have a junior team ready to compete in the 2017 season.
The Falcons’ mission is to provide an organisation in Ballarat where interested members of the community can learn the fundamentals of gridiron, the importance of teamwork, discipline and responsibility while having fun and forging lasting friendships.
If you are interested in the great game of American Football, we are always looking for new players, coaches and other support staff to join our club.
American “gridiron” football is a game suitable for all body types, abilities and fitness levels and is growing in popularity all across Australia. It is a challenging, character-building sport with its own unique code of honour. Our aim is to build a club with a reputation for clean, robust competitiveness, highly skilful and disciplined players, and a lasting legacy of success that the entire city of Ballarat can be proud of.
If that sounds like something you’d like to be a part of contact us today!
