About Our Club
The Prahran Junior Football Club (PJFC) aims to be the Football Club of choice within the Stonnington area for boys and girls looking to enjoy football, develop their skills, and expand and enjoy friendship and community sport participation.
Originally formed in 1975, PJFC is part of the broader Prahran Football Club, and offers a pathway for players from Under 8s through to U18s and beyond, together with the Prahran Amateur Football Club.
Core values guide our decision making and approach to supporting Community Football.
Volunteer at PJFC
PJFC is a volunteer based organisation which relies almost entirely on parents to operate the Club.
The Prahran Junior Football Club encourages you, your family and friends to participate and support our wonderful Club.
We believe that our Club’s focus on the development of players of all abilities is a critical component of our success. Players interested in developing their skills, listening and learning from Coaches and each other thrive at PJFC.
Our curriculum guides our approach to supporting both Coaches and Players on their development.
We believe that football at PJFC should be fun. Playing with friends, supporting each other, and enjoyment through team play and achievement of goals and outcomes, however small.
We encourage our players to understand what it means to wear a two-blue top.
Learning how to win and lose, encouraging each other, shaking hands, congratulating, playing by the rules, selfless play and being there for the team rather than yourself.
We are genuinely a Club for all. You just need to take an interest in football, each other, and having a go. Our Community Fund supports players to participate from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our community comes together with strong volunteerism, and welcoming those new to the Club.
We respect the rules, our Coaches, our opposition, and we help refocus players who need a little help to adopt strong and respectful approaches to ensure good participation.
We believe that feedback on what a player was trying to do is far more important than being critical of the outcome. Our Coaches encourage all players, and are required to develop and encourage.
We call out behaviour that’s contradictory to this approach.
