Eagles in the Community


The Eagles are a proud member of Adelaide’s Western Suburbs community and is currently increasing it’s involvement in many local community initiatives with school, sporting, charity and other groups.

In 2015, these Community initiatives continue to focus on developing three main areas for the Club:

  • Junior Supporters
  • Community Involvement
  • Game Day attendance promotions including Interactive Game Day themes (i.e. Auskick Day, Kids Day etc.)
