The Kew Rovers Football Club is a not-for-profit sporting club that was established in 1971 to enable children from the local schools the opportunity to play football. The focus then and still is today, is to have fun and reap the benefit of participating in a team orientated family environment. Our philosophy is to encourage children to play sport irrespective of gender or ability. The club believes, particularly in the early years, in not formally grading players, but rather, allow them to play with their peers, improve their skills and just have fun.
Kew Rovers Football Club is affiliated with the Yarra Junior Football League in which teams from Under 9 (Tackers) – Colts (Under 17) play matches.
Team grading by the League commences in the Under 10 to Colts age groups. This is based on a number of factors including the Club’s submission, the team’s previous years performance and their performance in the first 4 rounds.
For the complete football policies refer to the attachments below.
The Yarra Junior Football League (YJFL) has always been a graded competition, from under ten above, comprising of up to six divisions per age group. The YJFL allocates the divisions for the teams within each club based on previous year and predicted performance. The Gold Division is the YJFL’s highest ranked team competition based on predicted overall team ability and performance.
Once the season has commenced the YJFL uses the first four weeks of the season as grading games to ensure teams are competitive in their division and, subject to the results in these four weeks, will regrade teams if necessary.
The primary focus of the Kew Rovers Football Club is to provide every child with the opportunity of playing club football in a healthy and safe environment, have fun and enjoy friendships. For more details regarding Yarra Junior Football League's grading guidelines visit their web site.
