Premiership success has been consistent during the club’s history with over 45 senior and 60 junior premierships along with a countless number of players from the club having represented their state as well as having had 7 represent their country at Olympic Games.

The most recent successes saw Premier League men crowned champions in 2010 and 2007, the Premier League Reserves men also in 2008, 2007, Premier League women in 2004, Metro 5 “babies” in 2011, Metro 5 men in 2009, Metro 4 women in 2005 and Men’s Vets in 2006 and 2008, Metro 2  women in 2016, Metro 1 men in 2015 and Metro 6 men in 2018.

Social & fundraising activities

It is important that playing hockey for Burnside is a rewarding, enjoyable and memorable experience.

Players must be appreciated for their team training and playing commitments and whenever possible should be encouraged to interact with each other in off field activities in order to extend and strengthen the bonds of the Burnside Hockey community.  One of the key aspects of running a successful Club is having the funds to enable the club to provide the services and programs it wants to help both retain and attract new players. Fundraising and sponsorship are the major initiatives that have been used in the past, along with occasional government grants from either state or local businesses.

A key function of any fundraising should be that it provides an opportunity for all club members to be involved.  This also allows for a spread of the load, helps to create an increased awareness and appreciation for any benefits and outcomes achieved through any income generated.

Likely events to be conducted in 2019 as fundraising events will include:

Monthly Club Dinner:

First Thursday of every month at The Maid Hotel – club sponsor

  • Social and Fundraising Events
  • Bowden Bowley Cup
  • Hotel Tour
  • Quiz Night
  • Club Awards Night
  • Bunnings BBQ and Cake Stall

Check website and facebook for event details

Sponsorship
It is important that club members support the club sponsors as they provide a valuable resource for the club. Here are the sponsors for 2017 and we hope to retain these sponsors for the 2019 season.
