The Club was founded by Para Hills School in 1971 and fielded a team in the North-Torrens Junior Football Association wearing St Kilda-style guernseys. In 1974 senior teams were placed in the Central District Association and a new guernsey designed to avoid a clash with Elizabeth North. The Club joined the SAAFL 4 years later and spent 12 seasons with the amateurs but struggled to compete, and so moved back to Central District before joining Division 3 of the S.A.F.A. in 1992, only to return to the SAAFL in 1995. Recently it has pushed its way up to Division 3 with three Grand Final appearances in successive years.

After winning a Div.3 [A grade] SAFA Premiership in 1992 the Club returned to the SAAFL in 1995 & played in A5N. In 1996 gradings were changed & the Club played in A3 with seasons 1997 – 2000 spent in A6.

In season 2000 the Club won the D6 Premiership & therefore gained promotion to D5 in 2001. Participation in the 2001 Grand Final saw the Club play in D4 in 2002 & take out the Premiership. A bad season in D3 saw relegation to D4 where we stayed for 2 seasons then were relegated again to play in D5 in 2006. The Club earned promotion back to D4 in 2007 by winning the 2006 flag.

Seasons 2008 – 2011 were spent in D3 but due to relegation dropped to D4 in 2012.
