Ashy Redbacks are part of the Yarra Junior Football League.

We are a friendly and inclusive club with teams ranging from Under 8 to Under 17 Colts in boys and Under 13, Under 15, Under 16 and Youth Girls (Under 18) in girls. 

Practice Matches - Sunday 26th March

Practice matches against East Malvern Knights will be going ahead this Sunday for teams in U13's and upwards. 

Unfortunately we were not able to finalise games for the U8's - U12's but we are working with the coaches to see whether we can conduct some intraclub games once we have access to Burwood Reserve post 1st April.

Games will start from 12:15pm and exact times will be finalised today. These will be communicated to coaches to inform players and we will publish the schedule here.

The venue will be East Malvern Knights home grounds on Basil Street Malvern East (located next to the East Malvern RSL).

The off season - a perfect time to continue your skills development

We know that summer means cricket, beaches and BBQs, but its also a great time to work on your skills as you have that game of kick to kick on the sand or around at a mates place.

To help you know where you might want to brush up on some old, or new skills, check out the Age Level Skills Curriculums. These are perfect for helping you take your game to the next level, whilst you're having a relaxed time with family and friends.
