Four years in the making, one more giant leap left to take.
Figtree moved into first grade after winning the reserve grade premiership in 2015 and are now officially the new force in the AFL South Coast competition.
They kicked six second-half goals to one at a windswept Hollymount Park, to end Kiama's premiership defence.
Standing in their way is the might of Wollongong Lions, who are playing in their fourth straight grand final.
"They're there to defend their legacy, we're here to take our chance," Figtree coach Will Ryan said.
"Our boys have earned their shot, we've worked hard all season and you could see the belief in the way we ran out the game.
"There's two training sessions and a couple of hours of footy left to play, but I think we'll benefit from playing two finals games.
"You could see in the opening minutes, we knew the intensity was different to anything we'd seen this year and the boys stood up."

Kiama led by three points at quarter time, but the Kangaroos took control to win 11.6 (72) to 4.8 (32).
A NEAFL rising star nominee last year, Callum McFadden booted four for Figtree to make it 13 for the finals series, while Cameron Daly and Sydney Swans junior representative talent Hamish McDonald were among their best.
Without injured stars Nick Baggio and former Hawthorn AFL draftee Jack Mahony, the Power tried desperately to reel in a 15-point deficit at three-quarter time, but McFadden sealed it with two in the last term.
