Walkerville Junior Football Club was established in 1961 and is a successful, welcoming, and well-run club located in Adelaide, South Australia affiliated with SANFL Juniors from season 2017.
Walkerville Junior Football Club is proud of its standing as one of the stronger junior metropolitan teams. Our Walkerville Junior Football Club teams 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 all players aged seven to fifteen (U8 – U15), and we welcome new recruits (and their parents) in every age group. We are excited to announce we will enter U8 and U10 teams in the SANFL Juniors girl’s competition in 2017.
Each year we try very hard to accept every player who wants to play for our club. The only way that a player who wants to play may miss out is if there are too many players for one team in their age group, but not enough to make up two. We have clear policies for player registration and selection ensuring a transparent process for the players and parents.
Registration takes place in January and February each year, and all players must register – including those who played the previous year. While we do accept some late registrations, the best way to get a game is to contact the club from December onwards and to watch our website for notices regarding registration. The Club’s registration policy is included in the registration information sheet, which is available when registrations commence.
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 (eg cricket) and on rare occasions such as pre-season 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.
