We are a community based Over 35’s Australian Rules Football Club that competes in the Vic Metro Masters League.
Located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne we are based in the suburb of Coburg at Piranha Park (Coburg City Oval).
We currently have three teams: Supers (O35s), Masters and Legends (O50s) all competing in the Vic Metro Premier division.
Our motto is “Footy For Life” and it’s our philosophy that you are never too old to play football. Our purpose to provide mature age players the opportunity to participate and compete in a safe, well organised and enjoyable atmosphere as well encourage participation in physical activity to better manage health.
Well the 2016 year is just about done and what a huge year it has been.
This is our first official correspondence as Co-Presidents and before we head into the exciting details of what the committee has been able to achieve we would like to take this moment to talk about the year gone by. Firstly we would like to thank the previous committee for all their time and hard work. While most of the previous committee has stayed on board, there were a few members who have had to step down and from all of us at Coburg Superules we say thank you.
Moving forward in 2017 we now have more people on the Executive & General committee than ever before and to achieve what we have set out to do we will require all of those people to assist in some capacity. We are overwhelmed with the support that has been offered from everyone and we hope to be able to deliver on all of the goals set out below.
As a committee we would like to continue with the goals of the previous committee and build on that to make our club as great as it can be for 2017 and beyond.
So what are our goals…..
On the 2nd of Jan 2017 we have been lucky enough to secure a Sausage Sizzle Fundraising site at Bunnings. We really need the assistance of anyone who can attend. Even if it’s for 1 hour that would assist us greatly. Please contact Pete Cummins if you can help out. Also training for 2017 starts Feb 4. We would love to get a huge turnout for that session.
Please get the word around and let’s make it the best start to a season in the clubs history.
One of our major goals this year and moving forward is to be accessible to all members and to be in a position to provide updates at all times. Please feel free to contact either of us at any stage. We would also like to thank Pete Cummins for all of his support and assistance in these early stages of our appointment. Your support, effort & time is very much appreciated Pete.

2017 will be the year of the LION.

Extra Fitness? Play AFL 9's At Brunswick
If you're looking to gain a little extra fitness Brunswick are conducting a version of AFL 9's (called Bruny 9's) at Fleming Reserve, Albert Street, Brunswick on Monday evenings from 6pm. It runs from November through to March.
They are full ground games but with no tackling and some modified rules. It's a no pressure, run-around where teams are picked from whoever turns up on the evening. This means players can range from 8-60 years of age. It¹s a great 90 minutes of running with mates and testing your football skills.
