Belgrave Junior Football Club is a family oriented club that prides itself on developing young players with a focus on mateship, fair play and fun! Testament to this is the fact that the club was awarded the Dorothy Moxham Shield for Best Conducted Club at the 2016 Yarra Ranges Junior Football League's annual awards. At the same event, our under-12s team was named the Best Conducted Team. In addition, our girls' team's coach, Andrea (Andy) McGuinness, was named the Female Coach of the Year.

Our footy ground - affectionately dubbed "the Bellydome" - is in Reserve Road, Belgrave (same road as the Belgrave Swimming Pool but at the western end).

In 2018 the club is looking to field the following teams:

* GIRLS/BOYS MIXED: Under 8/9s aka the 'Wayalak' competition.

* BOYS: under-10s, under-11s, under-12s, under-14s.

* GIRLS: under-10s, under-12s and under-14s, under-16s, under-18s.

Games take place on Sundays, while training takes place on Wednesday evenings.

It will be great to see the level of game-day excitement and enthusiasm with this number of teams in action. 

The inclusion of even more all-girls teams will build on the exciting debut of our first all-girls team in 2016, the first such team in our local area. Belgrave JFC is proud to be part of such a positive move and believe we provide a great environment for girls wanting to play Aussie Rules.

Registration Fees

Club registration fees for 2018 will $140 for one player, or $250 for two players from the same family, or $340 for three or more players from the same family.

Each player is assigned their own jumper for the duration of the season. (To be returned at the end of the season.)


Belgrave Auskick is on every Friday @ 5:30pm at the footy ground. More info HERE. Auskick proved very popular last year with over 30 young budding AFL stars churning the ground every Friday with the majority being girls. Great to see. 


The BJFC Committee welcomes any assistance with match-day setup activities. You don't have to be a committee person to help out. There are quite a few small but important tasks that need doing each home game, such as:

  • serving in the Canteen for an hour
  • selling raffle tickets around the ground
  • scoring or time-keeping in our state-of-the art scoreboard

Please get in touch - or just ask on the day - if you're able to assist. Any help is much appreciated.
