In 2024 the Pittwater Tigers JAFL redesigned the playing guernsey for the first time in the Club's 50 year history. The original design of the Tigers jumper was based on the Victorian based Richmond Tigers AFL Club but now we have a uniquely designed footy guernsey which represents us, the Pittwater Tigers.


When considering the new design, the Club wanted to connect and pay respect to the traditional owners of the land on which we play our great game and so we engaged aboriginal artist Rheanna Lotter to create a design reflective of our Club, our community, our values and our unique place on the Northern Beaches.​

About the design

This artwork shares our story of the Pittwater Tigers. Featuring a meeting place in the middle representing the club. With one connection line coming in showing our past journeys and two lines that flow out. The two connection lines that leave our meeting place are a representation of the future and the possibilities that it provides for all connected to the Club. ​


The background features many details of our Aboriginal ancestors who have protected the land for thousands of years. Through the footprints, waterways and land, Aboriginal people continue to be a guiding light for how we need to look after our environment. The outside people (U symbols) represent all our Aboriginal ancestors who fought to protect the land and paved the way for our Aboriginal people.
The meeting place, our Club, is strong, bonded, and never breaking. With the lines never breaking and all of us united, the AFL community continues to stand by each other, take care of each other and always help each other. Our values within the club
keep us strong. The U shapes are an Aboriginal symbol for people sitting down. As we connect and play, we feel safe, valued and have our voice within our meeting place. 

Surrounding us, we are protected by our boomerangs which show our resilience and our strong spirit.​
