Welcome to the 2018 Park Orchards Football & Sharks Netball Club season. 

Welcome back to our 2017 premiership players across all 3 football teams and a big welcome to our new players & recruits. The club was officially established in August 2010 and is affiliated with the Park Orchards North Ringwood Parish Junior Football Club, which is the largest junior club in the City of Manningham. The senior club was admitted to the Eastern Football League (EFL) in October 2010.

At the senior level in 2017, we fulfilled our plan to win all 3 senior football team premierships along with a Netball premiership.  So the challenge that lies ahead this season is to confidently embrace a new division with the new challenges, new teams, new football grounds to play and enjoy the opportunities that sit before us.   2018 will be our final year of our 3 year strategic plan focused on being a club that is ‘ALL-IN’.  Our roots as a senior club are so young, yet our culture and the seeds that have been sown over the last 8 years have been incredibly fruitful.  We owe it to ourselves to continue to trail blaze a direction for our club that is full of success, great culture and a family-friendly environment for the generations to come.
