About Us

Welcome to Mordi-Brae

MBJFC’s Child Safety Mission Statement: To provide kids a safe, supportive and inclusive environment this develops, promotes and encourages participation in Australian Rules Football.

Playing junior football at Mordi-Brae is a great way for your son or daughter to have fun, make new friends, learn footy skills and play an active role in creating a healthy community.

Mordi-Brae is a member club of the South Metro Junior Football League Players and has teams in the following age groups:
Mixed (boys and girls) – under 8/9/10/11/12/13/14
Girls – under 10/12/14/16/18
Boys – under 15/16/17.5

The club operates teams from Under 8 through to Under 18 and is one of the biggest junior sporting clubs in the City of Kingston.

We are also partners with Parkdale Auskick, for primary school aged children 5 to 12.

Age Groups

Players are allocated to an age group based on their age as at 1 January. For example, players turning 12 in 2018 are eligible to play under 12.

Under 8/9/10/11/12/13/14

Under 10/12/14/16/18

Under 15/16/17.5

From humble beginnings, MBJFC was formed in February 1969 by three thirteen year old boys: Peter Moait, John Ronke & Dean Carroll. In 2018, we celebrated our 50th year!

After starting with only one Under 13 boys side in 1969, in 2018 we anticipate close to 700 players will participate in over 35 teams (including 11 girls only teams!)

We are now the largest football club in the City of Kingston / 4th largest club in the SMJFL which covers 6 Melbourne municipalities.
