A Warm Tiger welcome to The Balwyn Junior Football Club (BJFC)

The Balwyn Tigers Junior Football Club participates in the Yarra Junior Football League (YJFL) and our Club is located at Balwyn Park, corner Cherry Road and Whitehorse Road, right in the very heart of Balwyn.

The BJFC proudly wear the Yellow & Black and we foster a rewarding and inclusive community experience for junior players, parents and their families. With a dedicated Auskick program, through to competition teams for boys and girls Under 8 to Under 14 years of age. Competition games are played on a Sunday morning, with most games played locally within Boorondara.

We offer a unique opportunity for every young player to follow their football dreams at a local level all the way to our Balwyn Senior Club (2016 EDFL Division 1 Premiers), or perhaps even the MCG and beyond! In fact, we have a strong history of many AFL players commencing their careers right here at Balwyn. Many boys and girls form friendships in Auskick and continue their footy journey together through the Club, as 50 Game and 100 Game milestones are regularly celebrated, with the traditional run-through banner.   


Community Focus 

Under our See The Future community focus, The Balwyn Junior Football Club is aslo committed to the future of our kids. At the core of our teaching are the Values of Teamwork, Commitment and Participation.

Our Club's Aim is to provide young footballers with an opportunity to develop their skills and participate in a team sport in a safe, supportive and family environment.  We encourage all players to be the best they can be regardless of their ability or gender.

At Balwyn JFC, there is always room for every player in our teams.

We encourage also local Community traders and businesses to become involved in our Club and together enjoy the support of Club members in return. We have a range of innovative Player recognition Awards and Club Social functions, designed to bring revenue and custom back to our local supporters and it's an aspect of the Club that we value.
