Junior Football

In 2020, the Cheltenham Junior Football Club celebrated it’s 30th birthday after launching from a successful merger between St Francis and Assumption in 1990. 

The principles of the Cheltenham Junior Football Club are to provide players with a safe and friendly environment in which to develop their skills, build friendships and provide a family environment for both players, parents and supporters.

The club’s philosophy is based on participation and to provide players with the opportunity to develop and enjoy the game. 

In 2021, CJFC expect to have more than 19 teams with over 400 registered players in the South Metro Junior Football League. The club is independent and affiliated with the local Auskick which has over 150 participants.

The club prides itself on both its on and off field behaviour. We have established a Code of Conduct to document our club’s principles and the standards of behaviour that are expected from all players, parents, friends, supporters and officials of our club. It is the responsibility of everyone involved with our club to ensure these principles are upheld and maintained.
