B Grade

The Cove Football Club was established in 1984 to cater to the communities of Hallett CoveSheidow Park and Trott Park by a group of locals despite only planning a club around the early stages of building an oval. The first two seasons saw the newly-formed club play as an ‘away’ team for each ground as they didn’t have a secure oval and changerooms yet, with the players training at Morphett Vale. Early 1986 saw the completion of the ground and Cove having their own home ground.

The club has enjoyed a number of successes throughout the senior grades, with two A-Grade premierships in 1998 in Division 2 and again in 2008 in Division 1.

Our senior Men training occurs every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

2021 Registration fees SENIOR MALE:
Standard Fee: $385 + $15 (SA Player registration fee) =$400
