As the club enters its 159th year, it welcomes its new Women’s football teams, new E grade netball team, and Junior Ballarat Storm football & netball teams.
In 2018, the club is led by senior figurehead Darren Fraser (President), coach Shane Hutchinson & captain Nick Garner, and is based at the Alfredton Recreation Reserve (Active Electrical Oval), located on Cuthberts road in the heart of Alfredton.
Ballarat was based at the City Oval between 1906 and 1993 before making Alfredton Recreation Reserve its home in 1994.
