Balwyn FC is always keen to welcome new players to our club.

We have a strong club, with an emphasis on success, but with a firm belief that football revolves around mateship and enjoyment.

A new Senior coach will be selected and announced soon, as Daniel Donati finishes his very successful 5 year tenure to spend more time on his business and with his family.

Reserves Coach Adam Lenarcic will continue, after successfully coaching the Twos to a premiership in his first year 2015 and working hard with a very young group in 2016, who will all benefit from another year of experience.

A new U19 Coach will also be selected and announced shortly.
