Since being founded in the 1970’s, the Kalamunda Cougars have worked hard. Having 1 team almost 50 years ago in the Sunday league competition, we are now one of the power house clubs in the WAAFL competition and the strongest Amateur Football Club in the hills region. Every Saturday from the middle of April to September there are always games of football at Ray Owen. The community are always welcomed and encouraged to come watch the Kalamunda Cougars do battle every week, with the league team starting at 2:30pm.
Over the past 15 years our club has experienced 13 Grand Final appearances throughout the 4 grades and at Ray Owen alone have accommodated for more than 60 different Amateur Football Clubs throughout this time. Having over 300 players, members and fellow community people at a game every Saturday, your business will have heavy exposure throughout the Hills region. The Kalamunda Cougars have been an extremely successful community club over the past 15 years and the 2022 season will be no different.
The Kalamunda Cougars have always been regarded as a large networking club, with many of our events having a successful effect on not only gaining business from members of our club, but also supporting our valued sponsors. Event partnerships with Breast Cancer Foundation, The Heart Kids Foundation WA, Fight MND and the Midland Headspace Foundation, provide exposure for our club and help us give back to our community in the Hills region.
