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 U11 to U15 age groups.
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 aged seven to fifteen (Minis; U8 – U16), and girls aged seven to twelve (Minis; U9, U11 & U13 Girls). We run an AFL Auskick programme in Term 2 each year for all children aged 6 years and under.
Registration takes place for new players in February each year, and all players must register – including those who played the previous year. While we do accept some late registrations, please contact the club from January onwards and watch our website and Facebook page for notices regarding registration. 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.
Mentoring and Leadership Program (MLP) 2021
This year the WJFC have initiated a Mentoring and Leadership program for the U13 and U9 girls’ teams.
The purpose of this program is to develop connections between the playing groups, to provide leadership and role modelling for the U9’s and encourage the older girls to use their skills to support and develop the skills of younger girls within the club. The program will involve the U13 girls, who choose to volunteer their time to help out during the U9’s training sessions and on game day.
2021 will be a trial year for the program, with the club expecting the mentoring program to continue next year and will be considered for the boys’ teams also. At the end of the season, the mentors will be recognised with a certificate from WJFC. See video below.
