Grassroots in Tasmania

Hawthorn Football Club’s efforts at encouraging a new generation of healthy, active Tasmanian kids are designed to be as inclusive and wide-reaching as possible. The Club works closely with the Northern Tasmanian Junior Football Association and the Southern and North West Tasmanian Junior Football Leagues to provide unique experiences and opportunities that will help increase the standard of coaches, players and leaders within the leagues and association.

Hawthorn Football Club also enjoys a special relationship with its affiliated local club, the Prospect Hawks, and is proud to be a foundation supporter of the Prospect Hawks new junior female team. The Club has a strong history of supporting female sport in Tasmania. Since 2011 Hawthorn Football Club has been the naming rights sponsorship of the Northern Hawks Netball club.

In September each year Hawthorn Football Club hosts the Tassie Hawks Cup and the Tassie Hawks Netball Shield. These tri-series football and netball events invite regional high school winning teams from across Tasmania to compete in a major end of season competition that ultimately names the states’ best football and netball high schools.
