About WJFC



Walkerville Junior Football Club was established in 1961 and is a successful and well-run club located in Adelaide, South Australia affiliated with SANFL Juniors. We are proud of our standing as one of the stronger junior metropolitan teams, and have won numerous Grand Finals in the U12 to U16 age groups.


In 2023 Walkerville Junior Football Club was proud to receive the SANFL Juniors Award 'Club of the Year'. The award was recognition of the efforts and support of our players, committee, coaches, team managers and families. 

We are very proud of our success and love to see our teams win. But that’s not our first priority – the club’s philosophy is to create an environment where all players who want to play Australian Rules Football can play at their best, enjoy their football, and have good coaching and mentoring.

The club is open to boys and girls aged seven to seventeen. We run an AFL Auskick programme in Term 2 and 3 each year for all children aged 6 years and under.

Registration opens around November each year, and all players must register – including those who played the previous year.  The Club’s registration policy is included in the registration information sheet, which is available when registrations commence. We have clear policies for player registration and selection ensuring a transparent process for the players and parents.

The club is run by a strong, harmonious committee that oversees all aspects of the club, including football operations. The committee works hard to set clear, fair policies and to make sure that they are followed consistently.

Walkerville Oval is conveniently and centrally located on Smith Street, Walkerville. We share the oval with other Walkerville Sporting Clubs and we may use other local ovals pending availability.

The Club’s success is the result of the dedicated work of many people over many years, and we encourage you to get involved and enjoy everything that this great club has to offer.

Go Cats!
