CURTIN WESLEY TIGERS
The Curtin Uni Wesley Amateur Football Club is one of the largest and most respected clubs in the WA Amateur Football League. The club fields eight teams throughout the competition, comprising of five Senior Men's sides and two Colts sides, along with a women's side.
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, Reserves at 12.30pm and Colts at 10.45am -- and the Women's team playing on Sundays.
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 throughout the year.
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 regardless of ability or background.
The club has a strong committee and an excellent group of coaches, led by our Club Coach, Craig White. Craig returns to the Club after playing for the Tigers in 2016 and has an outstanding playing and coaching CV. Craig played 190 games for South Fremantle in the WAFL, including two league premierships and was club captain and vice captain during his time there.
Since finishing up at South Fremantle, he has also spent two years at Balmain Dockers as Captain/Coach and has been at Claremont for the previous two years as an Assistant Coach for their WAFL league side. Craig will be a non-playing coach which will allow him to focus 100% on his coaching role. He brings with him a wealth of football experience as both player and coach and we look forward to great success in 2019 with Craig at the helm.
The club offers a terrific social atmosphere for all players, partners and friends to enjoy and also prides itself of being a strongly community focused club. The Annual Pink Tiger Ladies Day held at the club is not only a must attend event on the social calendar, but has raised over $275,000 in support of the McGrath Foundation since inception. This makes the event the biggest individual fundraising event by a community club Australia wide in support of the charity.
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 Curtin Wesley Tigers to become one of the most successful and professionally run clubs in the league.
