Ashy Redbacks are part of the Yarra Junior Football League.

We're a friendly, progressive and inclusive club with boys teams ranging from ages 8 to 17 and girls teams from ages 10 to 18. U8 - U9 are mixed teams for boys and girls. We are focused on developing our players, both on and off the field and we offer an elite training program for our coaches so that they can impart the very best training approaches to our players.

Our community is vibrant and passionate - we love our footy and we our proud of the rich history our club.


Registrations have been open since late November 2018 and the Club has now reached 73% of capacity (i.e. 511+ players).


U13 boys - 2 TEAMS ARE FULL

Please do not register for these teams but instead, contact our Registrar to enquire about joining our wait list. For U13 boys, it is possible that if there is enough demand, a third team may be formed. An alternative to this is to play ‘up’ a grade and join U14 boys.

See below for a snapshot of the teams that are filling up fast:

AGE GROUP / TEAM CAPACITY (as of 15th of January 2019)

  • U16 girls - 1 spots available

  • U14 girls - 7 spots available

  • U12 girls - 8 spots available

  • U10 girls - 13 spots available

  • U14 boys - 14 spots available

  • Youth Girls - 14 spots available

  • U12 boys - 15 spots available

    It’s exciting that over 65 girls have already signed up to play with the Redbacks and next season, we’ll have 5 female teams (U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18) - a Club first!
