2011 – Inaugural Season
The Steve Jones-coached League side was never outside the top five in the C4 competition, winning their first five matches, which included a 44 point victory in the club’s debut match against Nollamara at Des Penman Reserve.
A twelve match winning run culminated in an eight point victory over Ellenbrook in the WAAFL C4 Grand Final at Kingsway Reserve, Madeley. The Cougars gained a handy lead in the third quarter and finished stronger to claim a flag in the club’s foundation season. Tom Bowey was awarded the Best of Ground Medal.
Daniel Spry won the W.A.A.F.L.’s C4 League Fairest & Best Award, as well as the inaugural club Fairest & Best Award.
The Reserves side under Kevin Presenza started their season with a narrow six point loss to and had an indifferent start with a draw and three losses in their first four matches, but as the season went on the side gained some players and became more stable to win seven of their sixteen matches and finish in sixth place, narrowly missing out on a finals berth. Brad Eckermann won the club’s Fairest & Best Award,
- The Colts (coached by Stewart Johnston, playing in the Laurie Keene Colts competition) started slowly in the first W.A.A.F.L. match by a Canning Vale side against Bassendean, with the club’s first score being a forced behind before Reegan Chalwell had the distinction of kicking the club’s first goal. A barnstorming effort saw the Cougars victorious but the battle to field a full complement of players on occasions meant that Canning Vale dropped some matches that they may have been able to win. The Cougars finished with a creditable seven wins and a draw to finish in sixth place.
