THE CURTIN WESLEY TIGERS
The Curtin Uni Wesley Amateur Football Club is one of the largest and
most respected A Grade clubs in the WA Amateur Football League. The club
fields seven teams throughout the competition, comprising five senior
sides and two Colts sides. The WAAFL is a highly competitive league and
is the strongest league in the Perth metropolitan area, outside of the
WAFL competition. All matches are played on Saturdays, with League
games commencing at 2.30pm.
The club is based at South Oval, Curtin University where we have established our own extensive clubrooms, training and social facilities. The clubrooms have been recently upgraded and our ovals have newly installed floodlighting which allow us to play night games. We are a very professionally run club and do everything possible to provide the best playing conditions for all of our members including physiotherapy support at all games and heavily discounted physiotherapy treatment for all players.
While many of our current and past players attended Curtin University or Wesley College, it doesn’t matter where you come from - all players are welcome down at the Curtin Wesley Tigers.
The club has a strong committee and an excellent group of coaches led by our Club Coach Kris Miller (300 game WAFL player, WAFL Premiership player, 4 time F & B with East Fremantle and South Fremantle). Our League Assistant coach is Mark Coughlan, who played 93 games for former Richmond in the AFL and won their F & B in 2003. The club is also famous for having a fantastic social scene and you can be assured that your wives and girlfriends will really enjoy the atmosphere at our club.
We also a very strongly based community club and we proudly hold our
Annual Pink Tiger Ladies Day which has raised over $150,000 in support
of The McGrath Foundation over the past 5 years. Last year we raised an incredible
$50,150 which makes the event the biggest individual fundraising event
by a community club Australia-wide in support of The McGrath
We are also fortunate to have one of the strongest networks of past players and supporters in the amateur league, many of whom also sponsor our club. The combination of a large and committed playing membership together with our loyal past player and supporter base has allowed the Wesley Curtin Tigers to become one of the most successful and professionally run clubs in the league.
