The University of New South Wales-Eastern Suburbs Australian Football Club, better known as the UNSW-ES Bulldogs, was formed in 1999 out of the merger between the Eastern Suburbs’ and UNSW football clubs. Our origins are traced back to the East Sydney Australian Football Club, which was established in 1880 and is New South Wales’ first and longest-running Australian rules football club. As one of Sydney’s most elite AFL clubs – with four men’s senior division teams, two senior women’s division teams, and two under 19’s development squads with endless opportunities to progress – we pride ourselves on our long, successful history providing the Eastern Suburbs and beyond a pathway into Australian football.

Celebrating 141 years of the Bulldogs in 2021, we thank our partners at UNSW for the opportunity to bring Aussie Rules to students, and our friends at Maroubra Saints Juniors AFC and East Sydney Bulldogs for their ongoing teaching, coaching and support of junior players. In recent years, the Bulldogs has been one of the most successful clubs in AFL NSW, with numerous players being selected to play at AFL, AFLW and VFL levels, though our talent also extends off the field. We maintain a strong and diverse committee and band of dedicated volunteers, and our success is measured in both playing and support staff, including a history of passionate and professional coaches.

With the luxury of two home grounds – David Phillips Oval in Daceyville, a newly developed training and facilities precinct, and Henson Park in Marrickville (currently under refurbishment to support AFL at the highest level) – the Club is able to accommodate large player numbers within their bases. Alongside AFL NSW/ACT providing professional pathways to community clubs, and with our integration structures into both the Men’s and Women’s teams, our opportunities are endless. In 2022, the Bulldogs will focus on not only player and talent development, but also on a legacy of people who learn and value our Club’s purpose of community, team work, inclusion, and achievement.

A minimum Level One Coaching qualification or higher is preferred for applicants, with further development offered and encouraged through Club and AFL opportunities. Please direct applications outlining your experience, coaching philosophy, and 2022 Bulldogs vision (which if successful will be supported by the Club and Committee) should be directed to unswesbulldogs@gmail.com no later than Wednesday November 17th.
