We take pried in the development of our players and ensure that new players will never feel out of place with our great club environment and culture.

The Pennant Hills Football Club prides itself on not only being a great catalyst for the development of talented footballers but also for the development of great young men and women. The Demon’s culture is built on the qualities of friendship, loyalty and community and it is these three ideals that make the Demon’s such a successful on and off field force.

The continued growth of the football club can be attributed to both our longstanding local ties with our Sydney JAFL affiliates (Pennant Hills Demons, Westbrook Bulldogs , Hornsby Eagles, North-Ryde Dockers), as well as our continued influx of players from outside our feeder zone that have heard about our great club. These two main player pathways lead to an increasing wave of new players, friends and supporters joining the club who too, like the rest of the Demon’s community, embody all of the qualities we strive toward.
