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.


As at Tuesday 11th of December, 423 players have already registered to play in 2019 i.e. 60% of our availability.

Numbers are starting to fill up quickly in the age groups of: U9 (two teams filled), U10 (two teams filled) and U12 (three teams filled) but there is still plenty of room for more players and additional teams to be formed.

It’s exciting that over 55 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!
