Our Vision


The Castlemaine Football and Netball Club strives to be the premier club of our region and a destination club for players of both codes. Our vision as a community-based organisation is to support our region through football, netball, junior development, mentoring, fundraising and volunteering.

We aim to foster a family-friendly environment which is welcoming to all community members. We seek to provide a safe environment for junior sports development, a hub for physical excellence, and a culture which supports our community both on and off the field. We are committed to breaking down the barriers of mental health stigma and foster civic responsibility within all of our members. 

Established in 1859, our club is the second oldest club in Australia and we are proud of our history. Our region and our community have changed a lot during this time and we will continue to change with it.


Our mission is to:

  • Support our local community.
  • Provide a safe and welcoming environment for all players, coaching staff, supporters and volunteers.
  • Foster the growth and development of our local football and netball talent.
  • Enhance social connection and community pride.
  • Ensure our club continues to move forward sustainably into the future.
