In order to maximise child participation in the game, different age groups have different amounts of players on the field.

Game day:

Junior Boys – Under 9’s

15 players on the ground, team maximum is 20 children.

Junior Boys – under 10’s – under 17’s

18 players on the ground, with a maximum of 6 on the bench.

Players in teams u10 – u17’s can play in older age groups to help out in cases of injuries or if families go away.

There is a strong chance that the answer is YES!

MJFC try to encourage fun, friendships and team development and because there are 15 – 22 players in a team there is an excellent chance that your child can play with his friends.

Please note though, that many older age groups including Youth Boys are played to a high standard and player safety must be considered before a final decision is made.

Different teams have different training nights and this may come into consideration as well.

On match day your child will need:

NFNL & MJFC playing jumper

NFNL official game day socks (short or long length)

NFNL & MJFC official game day shorts.  Home is black and away is white.

Please note that the game day shorts & socks are available via the uniform shop.

Mouth guards are compulsory on game day, optional for training.

Footy boots are compulsory on game day, optional for training.

Game day water bottles are provided by the club.

Training sessions are usually once per week and go for around 60 minutes each time.

Times vary depending on the team, the coach and the ground availability.  They are usually after school between 4pm – 7.30 pm Monday to Friday.

Full details are listed below under each team age group.

Participation is the key with training so children only need to bring their water bottle and a desire to have fun and develop their skills.

Mouthguards are optional for training (although recommended for higher grades).

Footyboots are optional for training.

MJFC takes their committment to player safely very seriously.  Each match has a parent volunteer as the Team Medic.  This person has a Level 1 First Aid qualification (minimum).

It is MJFC club policy that all children with Asthma must have their puffers with them before they can take to the field.

For player safety reasons we have a strict “No puffer = No play” policy.  We thank all parents and players in advance for your cooperation on this important matter.

If your child has other medical needs please speak to the MJFC Club Medic who can work out a plan so that your child can participate and have fun safety with their friends.

The MJFC Medical Officer’s email is –

Each team will be allocated a Team Manager.  MJFC will give the Team Manager the contact details of either one or both parents so that you can be kept informed of all upcoming matches.

Information is also available via SportsTG Website and Team App website (& app).

If you would like to volunteer as the Team Manager, please click here.

The answer to this is both yes and no.

NFNL is a graded competition and we try to match payers with team mates of a similar ability and then put the team in a grading that is a good fit for everyone.

U9 and U10 do not keep official match scores.  The focus is on participation, fun and skills development.  The Gameday Scorekeeper keeps track of official score and then submits the result to the NFNL to make grading adjustments as required.

U11 – U18 play a full graded competition with active scoreboard.  Players on the ground and spectators in the grandstands will all know the current score during all stages of the game.
