Secret Harbour Dockers

The Secret Harbour Football Club (SHFC) was founded in 2004, founded by just a handful of very keen parents with a passion for footy (the real Aussie kind). After two years of running Auskick, for 5 to 8 year olds, down at Secret Harbour Oval with around 40 kids participating in 2002-3, the foundation group decided it was time for a junior footy club in Secret Harbour.
As we all know, timing is so important when developing a new venture. The SHFC’s timing was perfect as the Fremantle Football Club, the “Dockers” were looking for new clubs to align themselves with and the SHFC was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
In 2004, the Club was incorporated and took to the field for the first time, with 70 Auskickers and teams for age groups 9, 10 and 11, in “Dockers” jumpers supplied by the Fremantle Football Club as part of their partnership with the new Secret Harbour Junior Football Club. In 2005 the club boasted 120 Auskicker’s, two 9’s, one 10’s, two 11’s and a 12’s team, with over 220 kids and a fantastic group of very keen parents.
