Family Friendly Club

The Bellarine Sharks AFC was formed in 2004 by Murray Hall out of a need for more local junior sporting opportunities in St Leonards and the Northern Bellarine Peninsula during the winter months. The founding committee consisted of Murray and Donna Hall, Mandy Maloney, Lyn Gleeson, Lyndal Almond and Carey Bell.

In 2004 the club offered soccer coaching to local school children through the Goal Kick program. This activity was very successful with 15 of these children forming our first team in 2005.

The clubs founding committee members were all parents of the children who attended the after school “Goal Kick” clinic which Murray Hall and Carey Bell had conducted earlier in the year.

Bellarine Sharks’ Home Ground is at Lake Reserve in St Leonards, on the Bellarine Peninsula.

The club plays in the Inter Milan colours of Black and Royal Blue vertical stripes.

From the outset the club had adopted the “Good Sports” program, which emphasised the need for clubs to provide safe environments for families to have fun and be active in their local communities.
