Under 14 Mixed

 NEXT TRAINING TUESDAY 2nd May – note change of venue

5.30 – 6.30pm at Moorleigh Reserve, 90-92 Bignell Rd, East Bentleigh (voluntary session)

There will be at one more official training session on Tuesday 18th April before the next player release.

Please note: All players MUST now be registered with their CLUB. It is a condition of Interleague participation that all players are registered with the club they played at the previous season. Any unregistered players will be released from the Interleague program.

Under 14 Interleague Player Release: 7.00pm April 19th 

Thank you for your participation in the 2017 SMJFL Interleague program. This is our second release.

If you are released and your name does not appear on the list of players we are retaining, we ask you to reflect on the opportunity you have had to train with some of the best players in the league, led by some highly skilled coaches, improving your football and fitness. We also hope you have made a few new friends.

Please continue to work hard as our coaches will be observing games in the coming weeks and there is a chance you could be called back after the footy season begins. Should that not be the case for you, remain dedicated to your skill development as boys develop at different rates and next year may be your chance.

We wish you well for the season ahead.

Under 14 Players continuing in program after 19.04.17 – only players on this list to continue


For those listed and continuing in the 2017 SMJFL interleague programs,  continue to display the dedication and interleague values of (CARE) Commitment, Attitude, Respect and Effort  you have shown to date.

2017 Interleague Player Information Night Presentation


Photo Request

In order for our coaches to identify the players more quickly we intend taking head and shoulder “mug-shots” of each player. To simplify identification it would be appreciated if you could download, edit and print the following document on an A4 sheet of paper. This should be brought to the first training session you attend, we’ll take the photo of player holding the sheet of paper to identify them. If you have printer or computer issues, please CLEARLY and in large print write the information (given name, surname, club, jumper number, age group, height and weight) on a clean sheet of paper and bring that.

If you have any problems with your child’s photo being taken please discuss with us on the night.

2017 Interleague Eligibility:

Please note that any player who changes clubs before the season will not be eligible to be part of the Interleague squad. This is a new initiative designed to stop good players leaving the club that has supported them in order to find “better” football. We truly believe such players can learn leadership and help their club team improve by remaining at that club, whilst being able to participate in the Interleague program to satisfy their thirst for higher skilled football training and games.
