Player Information

Training and Playing Gear

Depending on your age group, training will be once or twice a week for an hour to an hour and a half. The club will advise training day/s and time/s via your team manager.

Players may train in any sports gear they choose, and the club has a range of training clothing available.

We provide your playing jumper, and you will need to purchase from the club home (red) and away (white) shorts, club socks and purchase football boots and a mouth guard.

Teams

Before the season starts, your daughter or son will be allocated to a team. Each team has a Coach, Team Manager, Assistant Coach and other team officials as requested by the SMJFL.

Your team manager will be the point of contact for the season, advising you of any volunteer duties for the week, fixtures, team announcements, and other team relevant communications.

Game Day

Games are played across south-east Melbourne, covering Port Melbourne, Prahran, Malvern, Waverley Dingley and suburbs in between. Games are not played at set times each week, however, younger age groups are usually played at earlier times.

Each week, parents are required to help out in a number of volunteering roles to help the team function. These may include umpiring (field* and goal), trainer, runner, scoring, voting for best players, timekeeper, and half-time fruit.

*only for Modified Rules games.

Girls Football

Mordi-Brae is one of the biggest girls football clubs in the Southern Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL). We have had girls only teams since the league launched girls football in 2011. We have teams in under 10/12/14/16 and aiming to field an under 18 team for the first time in 2018.

Club and the Community

Every Sunday evening the Club community comes together for match reports. The coaches rostered on provide an overview of their team’s match for the day, highlighting the achievements of their team and any individual milestones reached. These weekly events are a great opportunity to meet other parents from your team and the Club and to share your match day experiences.
