KENMORE BEARS Junior Australian Football Club

Kenmore Bears

Junior Australian Football Club

The Kenmore Bears are one of the fastest growing junior Australian Football Clubs in Brisbane, with about 350 registered players in teams aged from under 8's to 17's. In addition, up to 100 local children a year participate in the successful Auskick programme which introduces them to the skills of Australian Football prior to becoming part of an under-age team. Kenmore is the home of female football in the Western Suburbs with over 120 registered female players.

Kenmore prides itself on being a "family" club. Our emphasis is on developing a range of football skills among all children and providing a safe and comfortable environment in which to play the game. We are also fortunate to have a large number of parents who volunteer their services in a number of areas to ensure the smooth functioning of the Club.


The Kenmore Bears are affiliated with the AFLQ South East Queensland Juniors, with its junior teams playing in various divisions against other clubs in the south-east Queensland region.
