About Our Club

Our Club History

The Banyule Junior Football Club (Banyule JFC) was formed in 1967 and took occupancy of the present premises at Beverley Road, Heidelberg, in 1973. Banyule JFC competes in the Yarra Junior Football League (YJFL), which is the largest junior football league in Australia. Banyule JFC serves to provide a strong community and a family-based environment to support the development of over 340 young girls and boys that field teams from U8 mixed to Youth Girls and Youth Boys who play for the club in a competitive and healthy environment each Sunday during the football season.

Banyule JFC feeds into the Banyule Football Club (Banyule FC) to allow junior players to continue playing football with their friends under the Banyule banner as senior players. Banyule FC fields U18, Reserves, Senior Men’s and Senior Women’s teams in the Northern Football Netball League (NFNL) competition. In addition, the Banyule JFC manages the local NAB AFL Auskick program that introduces children aged between 5 to 12 years into the world of Australian Rules Football.

Our Club Vision

Banyule JFC aims to provide a child safe and inclusive environment for all children to participate in Australian Rules Football and enhance their skills, discipline, health and well-being.

Our Club Values

Respect for officials, opposition players and supporters
Fair and disciplined play
Equal opportunities for all
