The strength of East Ringwood Junior Football Club (ERJFC) begins at grass roots level with the East Ringwood Auskick. Run by many of our ex players, the fun and enjoyment shared amongst the families and kids is testament to the passionate volunteers.
We experienced a fantastic 2017 year; one that was full of on field and off field achievements building on our strong culture of success!
Our numbers grew to a new record high of over 450 players and our strategy to promote the best club has been reflected in so many ways. With all of the new players coming on board we are forecasting numbers of over 500 players for 2018 season. Obviously, a great off field promotes an even better on field.
We pride ourselves on making your children the heart of our club, developing our young Roos love of playing for the blue and the white. Every child gets to enjoy our participation model, as we field multiple teams in every age group. We also focus heavily on our performance side of the club. We invest in top quality coaches and financially contribute to the development of each of them; the more talented the coach, the better your child will grow.
Our club eliminates risk. In saying this, encouragement versus aggression and poor behavior can sometimes be a fine line. We entertain only positive behavior towards our players, opposition players, parents, umpires and all that have the common interest, football.
Our off field activities are detailed and we discuss every aspect that makes up our great club. Protection of our kids is imperative. We focus on what creates happiness and the rest falls into place, including success!
Our presence at interleague level speaks for itself and our growing silverware over the last few years puts pressure on our display cabinet.
The pathway for your child is to the mighty East Ringwood Football Club. Draped in a history of first division football and known as one of the BIG 4, we are proud to watch our home-grown juniors turn it on at senior level as their career progresses.
The senior / junior relationship has never been better. On field, the senior players embrace our kids and club. The contribution at a training level and an open day (yearly) with our senior players cements your child’s pathway.
Our home ground (Ainslie Park) has just welcomed the new and extra-large scoreboard, a brand-new surface and a boutique style viewing area that allows you to bask in the action of your children and their love for our great game.
Girls football at our club is growing at a huge rate of knots. It is great to see the numbers growing and our girls have already started to contribute to our jam-packed cabinet. We pick the best coaches for our girls as the journey starts late. We look forward to seeing our junior girls also go on to play at the East Ringwood Football Club and maybe even in the Australian Women’s Football League.
We have grand upgrades planned for our club room and change facilities including a social area that can handle 100’s of members. Watch that space!
Financially, we are quiet strong and we also are savvy. Our bank account is just that, ours! Its nice to be able to commit to community initiatives and contribute to those that need it most. Our equipment is excellent as we are aware that spending the money in this area promotes better equipped team managers, trainers, coaches and kids!
The future for the ERJFC is very bright with a common goal at all levels in our committee. We also welcome new committee members at every opportunity. So, if you are looking at contributing a small amount of time to an amazing community initiative, call our president today.
If your are looking for a safe and friendly environment for your child and you feel you can bring same…….The ERJFC have arms wide open!
We wish all players, supporters and our valued sponsors the best of luck and hope you enjoy the season.
