Glen Iris Junior Football Club, also known as the "Gladiators"
was founded in 1987.
We are a Melbourne based Junior Australian Rules Football Club and in 2015 we had
over 510 registered players and fielded 23 teams including U12 and U15 Girls sides.
In 2016 we will field 24 sides and with the addition of Youth Girls (U18), we will have
4 female sides representing the club this season. The age of our players varies from
U8 through to Colts (U16/17) with no senior affiliation. We also run a Friday afternoon
Auskick centre, providing a pathway into the club for younger players.
We welcome both new and returning players and have teams playing in the
Yarra Junior Football League - YJFL (www.yarrajfl.org.au) which comes under the
control of Football Victoria.
Our aim is to promote the game of Australian Rules Football and development of
junior football. In doing so, we hope to nurture and enhance the development and
improvement of football skills and to promote attitudes of good sportsmanship,
temperament, cooperation with others and character in children.
We encourage participation, regardless of ability by maximisation of enjoyment while
placing winning in perspective and encourage respect for others including umpires,
opponents,officials and fellow players. We strenuously oppose all forms of verbal,
racial and physical abuse and to encourage best practice methods of coaching.
