The Ringwood Jets Junior Football Club is a member of the Saturday Football League (SFL) and has been running for more than 50 years. The club has two teams (Under 10’s and Under 12’s) which consist of primary school aged children from Our Lady’s Ringwood, Heathmont East, Great Ryrie Primary, Marlborough Primary, Eastwood Primary, Tinternvale Primary and other neighbouring schools… All are welcome! The league plays all its competition games on Saturday which means that families are free to enjoy the rest of their weekend together. This is the only junior football league which does not play on Sundays.
The Ringwood Jets is a club that’s determined to provide an environment in which your child will thrive. Our coaches teach skills and give each player opportunities to grow and be the best they can be. From watching and coaching many young Jets, we’ve come to understand that not every kid is the next AFL superstar… and nor do they all want to be. One thing that shines through though is their beaming smile when they get their first kick or their first goal! Sure, it’s a personal milestone, but it also develops their sense of belonging and fitting in to the team. It’s priceless to watch and we think that’s worthy of celebration.
Our league doesn’t promote “winning at all costs”, but rather providing an environment for each player to achieve their personal best within a team and having a great time doing it.
U10’s – This team is typically made up of boys and girls from grades 2, 3 and 4.
U12’s – This team consists of boys and girls from grades 5 and 6.
The quality of football in the SFL is excellent and the attitude of coaching staff, administration, umpiring and spectators is exemplary. At the Ringwood Jets, we pride ourselves on the conduct of our teams and the encouragement of our players. We’ve enjoyed great success and many young Jets have experienced a wonderful junior football experience.
