Welcome to the Balwyn Junior Football Club.
Our home ground is located at Balwyn Park, corner Cherry Road and Whitehorse Road in Balwyn.
The BJFC participates in the Yarra Junior Football League, one of the largest junior leagues in Melbourne.
The Club fields teams from Tackers (Under 9's), right through to Under 14's.
For the 2014 season we had over 200 registered players participating across ten teams.
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.
Postal address: PO Box 347, Deepdene, VIC, 3103
Coaches for 2015
The Balwyn Junior Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of the following coaches for the 2015 season.

Under 13 - Paul O'Connell Mobile: 0408 678 219

These appointments are based on and subject to expected player numbers for next year. This is particularly tricky to anticipate in the younger age groups given the YJFL rule and team composition changes being implemented for the first time next season.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those who have volunteered their time to coach next season. All coaches need assistants and team managers to help them develop our boys, so please call your son’s coach as soon as possible if you are prepared to help out next year.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all outgoing coaches for their contributions in Season 2014; Bruce Fitzgerald from Under 14's, Gerard Amalfi from the U12’s, Chris Watts from the Under 11’s and Tony Barton from the U10’s. Bruce Chris & Gerard in particular have been involved with the club for many years and have been a great influence on many Balwyn Tiger boys over the years.
Thanks again for your involvement.
Finally enjoy the off-season and we look forward to seeing you all in Balwyn Tigers colours again for season 2015.
