BVC Bears

BVC enters teams in all divisions, and has a proud history of success, with 15 Premierships in the last 9 years and Overall Club Champions in 2009, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018. In 2016 BVC introduced a mascot to the club for our competitive teams which are now known as the 'Brisbane Bears'.


It is not a requirement to attend all sessions, although players are encouraged to attend as many trial sessions as possible.

NOTE: All NEW players wanting to trial for the BVC Bears will need to register using the online registration form.

For players who do not make the eventual teams, we will look to provide other opportunities through other Bears competitive programs or our in-house Social Leagues or our Casual Training Squad.
