PARKSIDE JUNIOR FOOTBALL CLUB
The Parkside JFC plays in the Yarra Junior Football League. Our home ground is situated at Pitcher Park (Cnr Mercil Rd and Parklands Avenue) in Alphington.
Our Club prides itself on creating a family environment where children can participate in improving their fitness and ball skills and playing in a team environment.
Every year our numbers are growing and we field teams ranging from Under 8 to Under 17. We also have a very successful Auskick clinic run by parents where boys and girls from 4 years old to Grade 3 can learn the skills of football in a safe environment. Auskick is held at our home ground every Friday night from 5.30pm during the football season (April to August). New children are always welcome.
The Parkside Junior Football Club was formed in 2005 by the Committee of the Alphington-Fairfield Auskick clinic as a result of strong demand from families seeking a junior football pathway in the local community around Pitcher Park in Alphington.
The Club started with its first Tackers team in the Yarra Junior Football League in the 2006 season. It has since added one team each year and now fields 2 Tackers teams and 4 girls teams all the way up to Colts (14 teams in total) with just over 330 players .
The Club celebrated its first two premierships in 2012 with the Under 12s and Under 15s both winning their grand finals.
The Club is looking to continue to build a solid foundation to ensure a prosperous future.
Colts teams are older, consisting of under 16 & 17 players.
There are four girls' teams at Parkside, Under 10, 12, 13 and 16.
There are eight boys' teams at Parkside, from under 8 to under 15,
