Senior Football

Caulfield Bears Senior Football League

We field 2 ‘open-age’ football teams which are affiliated with the Southern Football Netball League (Div 2) and play our matches at Koornang Park Munro Ave Carnegie. Whilst premiership success has evaded our football teams for some years, the past few years have seen our 1st XVIII play in the finals series for the past 4 seasons (with a Grand Final appearance in 2016) and our 2nd XVIII also played finals in 2017.

We have a young & energetic playing list complimented by experienced coaching staff which we believe is the recipe for success. We are very welcoming to all players.

Coaching Team

Our coaching panel for Season 2022 is confirmed and will again be headed by Chris O’Keefe.  Chris has an illustrious playing and coaching career having been a VFL player, a premiership player and coach and multiple Grand Final appearances.

He will be supported by a contingent of assistant coaches who have strong knowledge of the football and are equally passionate about community sport.


Watch this space for details of pre-season training.  This will commence once COVID-19 restrictions allow it.
