Welcome to Bentleigh JFC for Season 2021.
Let’s get our kids back out having fun, exercising and connecting with their friends in 2021 !!
After an extremely successful 2019 in which we fielded 14 teams in most age groups, we were looking forward to another big year in 2020 before the COVID curve ball.
Looking forward to 2021, excitingly we have already appointed the majority of coaches across all age groups, appointed the new role of Football Operations Manager and Director of Coaching, Paul Jemmeson, to ensure we continue to provide your kids with high quality coaching and a fantastic team environment, and have pre-season training underway.
The 2021 SMJFL season will commence on Sunday 18 April 2021 and we are planning for a full season. As we know, COVID might have different plans for us but we are optimistic and are planning for a successful full season. Season dates can be found on our Fixture and Results page.
Registrations are now open for Season 2020 via the Members Access Link on the right-hand side of our website, you will be able to register and pay online.
At Bentleigh JFC, we pride ourselves on being a medium sized club with an inclusive and friendly environment ensuring all kids feel welcome, and we balance on field success with player development.
If you would like to join the Bentleigh Junior Football Club, new players are always welcome. If you are looking to transfer to our club, please contact the Registrar at email@example.com to arrange a transfer.
Bentleigh JFC continues to be proud of its strong associations with the Bentleigh Auskick and Bentleigh Football Netball Club. This collection of three locally aligned sporting entities provides us with extremely strong pathway from entry level to senior football, in both playing and coaching. Ours is a pathway we are proud of and worked hard to establish.
With access to both King George Reserve and Bentleigh Reserve, junior players to have access to fantastic facilities and ground sizes suited to all age levels. Refurbishment of our Club rooms at King George Reserve was completed at the end of the 2019 season.
Importantly, we have a detailed COVIDsafe plan and are committed to always adapting the plan as protocols and guidelines from Government and the AFL dictate. We will again have a professional medical person at all home games to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children.

Yours in Football,
