The Curtin Saints American Football Club is a non-profit, community based club with a strong focus on growing the sport of Gridiron in all aspects including Seniors, Under 19s and non contact ’Flag’ forms of the game. The club will field approximately 150 individual players across the three formats, making us the largest club in Gridiron West and one of the largest in the Australia.
Our emphasis is on participation, fun and fair play. We value our sporting successes and strive to accept defeats in our competition with good grace. Our approach for teams U19 and below is on learning & developing skills while having FUN, first and foremost. The sport continues to grow in popularity and we are proud to be part of helping the game develop. Traditions are built over time however the foundations are in place and we invite you to help the club to continue to grow and improve on and off the field of play. The Saints were formed in 1994 and have since won the State League Championship twice in our history in the Senior competition Gridiron West, the last time however back in 1997/98.
The season 2014/15 saw the Senior team reach the Westbowl for the first time in a decade only to be beaten by a very strong & experienced Viper team. The Under 19’s failed to make the finals as a number of stars moved up to the Senior team. In Flag, the Saints remained state champions beating the Wolverines to become 3-peat champions.
Our successes are due to our dedicated players and coaching staff. Our accomplishments and rewards are a result of hard work in preparation, preseason, training and game day play. Our teams aspire to be champions and our club is working hard to provide the base they need to attain and sustain this goal.
Our affiliation with Curtin University facilitates access to fantastic grounds and first class club rooms right in front of the Curtin Stadium facilities perfect for our players and members who are not only drawn from current students but also from Alumni and the wider community in general.
