About Us

The West Coast Wolverines are based in Craigie, Western Australia and were founded in 2006 by the former chairman, Ryan Cope.

The club started with only a Junior squad, however with the increasing popularity of the sport and the need for an additional team in the Northern Suburbs, by 2010 the club had increased to two squads – a Junior and Senior Men’s squad. Both of which continue today.

In 2017, Gridiron West developed a women’s league, with the West Coast Wolverines entering a Women’s team into the inaugural 5-team league. Our Women’s team qualified for the first-ever Gridiron West Women’s League playoffs, however unfortunately fell short against the Perth Broncos in the semi final, finishing the season third overall.

The club has been forever growing since it started, and in 2014 our Junior squad triumphed by winning their first Gridiron West championship, the West Bowl, courtesy of an undefeated season.

In 2018, the Wolverines’ announced their very own flag football league running between the months of April to July – open to all ages with mixed teams! The West Coast Flag Football League is now running on Monday nights at Warrandyte Park, Craigie from 6:00pm during the above months.

In 2020, the Wolverines Men’s squad qualified for the Gridiron West playoffs for the first time in the club’s history. They backed this up with a consecutive playoffs appearance in 2021, but were unfortunately beaten by a better side on the day, the Rockingham Vipers. The new generation of Under 19 players also had a great season which saw them also qualify for the playoffs in 2021.

In 2022 we saw all three squads’ quality for playoffs. This lead to the Women’s squad progressing to the finals but unfortunately didn’t get the win.

The 22/23 Season was a highlight for the Wolverines. We welcomed three players from Germany, and they were a part of the Under 19s and Men’s squads coaching and playing. Once again, all 3 squads qualified for playoffs. The men’s squad didn’t get through but Under 19s and Women went onto the Finals and the games are said to have been the best in years. The Women’s squad unfortunately were beaten by 8pts and are ready to return in the 23/24 season. The Under 19s made it to the finals for the first time in 10 years. After 2 Overtimes they have been awarded the WEST BOWL CHAMPIONS for the 22/23 Season.
